Powered by R3 Companies’ appraisal expertise and PropMix’s valuation platform

Henderson, NV / January 30, 2024 / – Today, R3 group of companies specializing in appraisal management and reviews and PropMix.io LLC – a leading provider of real estate data and AI driven solutions announced the launch of ValueTest.ai – an online valuation research service for real estate agents powered by a unique combination of appraisal-expertise and AI-based valuation engines. ValueTest.ai helps real estate professionals test a value target for a property using AI-driven comp selection before taking an action.

Architect and CEO of ValueTest.ai is Brent Jones, a veteran appraiser with over 30 years of experience and Chief Appraiser of the R3 Review and Management Companies. “Since the inception of online values, I always wanted a tool to prove or disprove the numbers,” Jones says. “There is not an appraiser or any agent who hasn’t heard from a homeowner how their online value is correct. Now there is appraisal grade research that will prove or disprove that expectation”, Jones goes on to say.

Loan officers can also benefit by proactively troubleshooting every transaction for value issues. “Valuetest.ai enabled agents will have a full picture of any problem sales that may submarine a deal.  Our goal is to alleviate the risks of surprise appraisal gaps”, Jones stresses as a major benefit.

“We were approached with a novel solution to solve real estate agents’ major pain point of unrealistic seller expectations caused by incorrect online value estimates”, stated Umesh Harigopal, CEO of PropMix.io. “We have created an AI driven ‘Comp Selection Cascade’ filtered by common sense appraisal parameters. The result is research that agents can have as solid ammunition against inflated expectations”. Both Harigopal and Jones are excited about a major by-product of their agent efforts – customizable quality control cascades for Chief Appraisers and AMC’s.  “We found our cascade approach from a narrow set of parameters and weightings that expand with comp data availability will deliver the best QC experience to alleviate repurchases as well”.

ValueTest.ai is now available for real estate agents with verified MLS memberships to test their pricing targets and to have meaningful conversations with their customers. Agents can try ValueTest for free for up to 10 properties at www.valuetest.ai.
