"Do you recommend the software for that purpose i.e. is it worth the $150? "

I just got it and haven’t had it long enough to tell.

I’m just teaching myself how to do these, and want to make sure the numbers I’ve come up with are right.

Here it is:
1998 Horton Homes Mirage
16x80
State Adjustment/Region: ES
Condition Adjustment: Good
Land-Lease Community Adjustment: Standard

But that’s just me plugging in the info you gave. You want higher? Not hard to do, just plug in every feature the home has. You’re not using this number as a basis to buy, are you? I hope not. It’s so easy to get a huge variance of value that I don’t think there’s much value to the software program except to make it give you a value a few thousand higher than our asking price so the buyer sees what a good deal they’re getting “under appraisal”. Keep in mind, I’m not a certified appraiser or anything of the sort. I just tell them I plugged the home information in and this number is what popped out the other end.

Where they could pull it up for me quickly?

Any help appreciated.

Yup, I need the software. - Posted by Carlton Riley Smith

The best I could come to was $20,452. Not having it could have cost me a grand.

That book requires a double engineering degree (too much for this English major).

Thanks Michael. I’m definitely not using it as a basis to buy, but as a selling tool. Do you recommend the software for that purpose i.e. is it worth the $150?
