Does anyone know of any places on the net where you can download free digital maps for appraisals. I use appraiser toolbox if it makes a difference.

David:

I also use Appraiser's Toolbox. I first tried out Yahoo's maps, but marking the subject and comps is cumbersome, plus it won't let you mark more than three comps. I switched to the Thomas Bros maps on CD and I love it! It's not free, but it sure works great.

$50 is what I paid for DeLorme. Good mapping software.

Mary,

When I'm lazy and I use yahoo maps, I use the freeform text feature in Toolbox to mark the Subject and Comps. Just increase the font size and BOLD the text and you have a decent looking map.

Something like" SUBJECT-------> SALE 1------>

Works for me

Ben
