What a crazy time we live in right now, right? I hope you and your family are healthy and stay safe through this. Every one of us has been impacted in one way or another, and it''s our goal at Anow to do what we can to support not only our team, but our customers and all appraisers. We''ve moved our company to 100% remote through this and while there have been some hiccups, we are doing our best to keep this ship running. (Yes, we had an outage Monday and Tuesday this week and that totally stinks, but we are ensuring that doesn''t happen again).
Because of the spread of COVID-19, appraisers are taking all kinds of measures right now to avoid getting sick. With that, it has caused many to take less orders, desktops & drive bys only, or no orders at all. My father is still an appraiser in his 60s who is considered high risk, along with many others who cannot or have made the decision not to accept orders where an interior inspection is required. So, we are doing something about that. Our developers have worked tirelessly over the last couple of weeks, including nights and weekends to bring appraisers a solution to keep your income up and able to continue to work at full capacity.
I am really excited to introduce Anow Walkthrough. A guided homeowner inspection process where they can help complete a remote property inspection. We''ve included many pieces you need in order to still do a full appraisal (with all of the proper extraordinary assumptions), plus links to automatically FaceTime or call you for help. Homeowners, realtors, or whoever can assist you in doing the inspection so you don''t have to take the risk and you can still get paid for full reports where allowed.
