According to Canadian Property Valuation Magazine, when they’re relevant to the appraisal, a desktop review can dramatically increase production rates (valuations/reviews per day). Most jurisdictions conducting a desktop review can complete it in approximately 10 minutes, whereas a site visit can take approximately 40 minutes, not including travel. This can allow you to spend more time in analysis, rather than building the data.
