has announced the release of its mobile app for property inspections, the GroundWorks app
. GroundWorks combines a crowdsourcing model, localized expertise and mobile technology to accelerate the delivery of more accurate interior and exterior property condition reports.
GroundWorks connects Accurate Group’s nationwide network of pre-screened real estate property inspectors with lenders and servicers requesting property inspections. The app empowers inspectors with the ability to review, accept and respond to requests for property condition reports from any iOS or Android mobile device. Property inspectors in the GroundWorks network benefit from more business and a robust set of mobile tools for creating and delivering accurate property condition reports.
The app enables local property inspectors to respond to incoming requests for property condition reports, use built-in GPS technology to pinpoint property location and leverage integrated camera support and sketch tools to capture property details. The app also allows inspectors to instantly capture relevant property specifications–essentially building the property condition report in real-time, all with the GroundWorks app.
“Real estate lenders and servicers are always looking for ways to lower the cost per loan without sacrificing quality, accuracy and compliance,” said Scott Waxman, Chief Appraiser and President of Accurate Group’s ValueNet and GroundWorks Divisions. “GroundWorks is changing the game in the real estate industry–we’re raising the bar on both interior and exterior property inspection turnaround times and delivering the level of accuracy that only local, on-the-ground expertise can deliver.”
