Blended Data - Valuator's data set uses appraisal data combined with public record data - a more complete data source!
Yep, they use appraisal data.

Yep, more of the same, appraiser's data.

In years past DataQuick was the only private reporting service available in Graham County. I fought with them for years because they were handling the data from the assessor's offices in Arizona completely wrong. For example a parcel might have a house constructed in 1990 with 1,200 square feet as improvement #1, improvement #2 would be a barn with 600 square feet built in 1988, improvement #3 would be a storage building with 120 square feet built in 1999. DataQuick would report only one improvement on the property, the 120 square foot storage building in 1999.

And then there is another private report service that the real estate agents use (but I don't have the name) that would report one structure with 1,920 square feet with a construction year of 1999.

I don't trust private reporting services--their data is wrong!! I currently use Win2Data from First American, at least they itemize the improvements on each parcel but they are two years behind on new structures, one year behind on new parcels and changes in legal descriptions and three months behind of the latest sales--so they are not very dependable either.

All of the above is why I have created my own computerized data base, it is current (as of 12-07-2007) and has the correct improvement information.

No matter who it is, it has become apparent that they are sharing data with each other in this case, on-site appraisal/er data. There seems to be extensive partnering of such companies with each other.
