I am very green. I know nothing about appraiser software. I was told that appraiser toolbox was good. I wanted to see what you think. I am guessing they all do the same. it seems that this program is intertwined with other features.

All have their good and bad points. I use Toolbox and like it. You can download it free from them and try it before you buy it.

I have used it for several years too. I like it because it is intuitive, easy, and does everything I need to do to get my work out.

They offer a 30 day free trial and it is a fully operating version. You can use it in your work so you really get to give it a workout.

Many demos that I tried a few years ago are not fully operating so you have to get your work out in some other program and then play around with a demo. They will let you type an appraisal but will not let you print it or else it will have something like a huge "DEMO" watermark across all your work.

I have been a strong advocate of the Bradford's technologies for a long time. I have used all the major appraisal software and I highly recommend Bradford's Toolbox software. Don't even waste your time with anything else. Very easy, very fast, and my favorite feature.....very manipulative.


Yes, Toolbox is VERY good. I have used all of them. From ACI to Ala Mode and by far, nobody can come close to how easy to use Toolbox is and the incredible time saving features of that software.

In Toolbox, I can compelte an appraisal in about 1/3 of the time it itakes me to do one in Alamode.

It is very good. I have been using it since back when they called it ClickForms. However, like all software it has its good and bad points.

In my opinion, they would have a better product if it was more stable and less power hungry. (Some of this is probably Microsoft's fault rather than Bradford's.)

They have spent a lot of time and effort developing things that are not important to me (like appraisal tracker) and IMHO they would be better off to have developed a simple "search and replace" option or the ability to handle long file names.

All of that being said, I think they are the best software out there. Particularly if you are computer savvy enough to take full advantage of it.
