First there was the tape measure, which allowed two people (sometimes one, if skilled) to accurately capture the square footage of a property.
Then came laser measuring devices like the Disto, which can be easily wielded by one person and provide, well, laser-accuracy.
Both tools are useful and may always have a place in the appraisal world. But both tools also have their limitations — it’s difficult to quickly measure a curved wall, to name just one.
That’s why we built the Sketch AR feature into our HouseCanary Appraiser app.
All you need is your iOS device and a space to measure, and you can capture that measurement more quickly than ever — saving time and allowing you to get to the next job faster.
