Customer Reviews

Easy to use, better than Marshall & Swift's Swift Estimator Review by Rick.
I have been using this product for 2 years, about 80% of my assignments as an Appraiser, per Client requirement. I can complete a well-documented Cost Approach in about 5 minutes. The M & S product is about $10 per use and needs only the zip, year built and GLA to create a Cost, accurate?, how can it be? The quality of the NBCE software's rating process for the different elements is straightforward and simple. If I had to explain myself to the State Board about any report, I'd want to have my Cost constructed through this product versus M & S Swift Estimator. (Posted on 9/30/2016)
