FIELDSMART EVALUATIONS

For fast, reliable valuations, our FieldSmart series of commercial evaluations are unsurpassed.

Each FieldSmart commercial evaluation report provides a professional, fully supported opinion of value based on in-depth research of a subject property's attributes and sales and/or rent comparables, including line-item detail, for one of three valuation approaches:

  • Comparable sales
  • Sales and income
  • Income only

FieldSmart reports come with either an exterior or exterior-interior inspection and are available nationwide. At significantly less cost than a full appraisal, you get an evaluation that is fully compliant with federal agency guidelines and backed by our in-house team of appraisers and analysts who are committed to delivering the highest-quality valuation product on time, every time.

FIELDSMART RESTRICTED APPRAISALS

Struggling with high appraisal costs? Our FieldSmart Restricted Appraisal (RA) reports were specifically designed to furnish you with a trustworthy property valuation, signed by our state-certified licensed appraisers, that won't break the bank.

Currently available in more than 30 states, FieldSmart RA reports leverage Boxwood's tech-intensive valuation platform and proprietary analytics to generate a USPAP- and FIRREA-compliant appraisal report quickly and at a very reasonable cost.

Pick among four FieldSmart RA versions with different price points to meet your varying needs: either our abbreviated "FieldSmart RA LTE" or "FieldSmart RA Sales" reports with the sales comparison approach to value; the "FieldSmart RA SI" product including sales and income approaches; or our "FieldSmart RA Income" report with an income-only approach for use in geographical areas where sales transactions are too sparse.

VALPRO AVM

When you need an immediate estimate of a commercial property's value, you need Valpro—our instant, objective automated valuation model (AVM) product for small-cap CRE properties.

Valpro is a hybrid statistical model that creates an estimate of value based on an extensive pool of property, sales and market data. Every Valpro report also includes building characteristics, tax assessed value, location maps and a confidence score. Simply enter a property's address, and within seconds, Valpro delivers an accurate estimate of value. Use Valpro for a quick confirmation of value, to size a loan or to QC any other market value assessments – or use it to update LTVs on loan portfolios to determine potential loss severity and overall value.

Our complementary product, Valpro PC, combines Boxwood's AVM with an inspection of the subject property. Valpro PC complies with federal agency guidelines for a commercial property evaluation report used by bank institutions.

BOXWOOD PRICE INDICES

Updated every month, our Small Commercial Price Index (SCPI) and our Small Multifamily Price Index (SMPI) help lenders and investors make sense of market trends and investment risk.

Both sets of indices monitor property sales under $5 million in value. Each is designed to boost your market intelligence about the status and direction of investment markets, relative market strength and where changing metro trends may signal the need for a deeper dive into asset-level performance.

Small Commercial Price Index (SCPI)
Lenders and investors trust our SCPI data to monitor changes in collateral values and market conditions over time. Our SCPI product tracks small commercial property sales for a broad spectrum of commercial properties in 125 U.S. markets.

Small Multifamily Price Index (SMPI)
To help lenders and investors better assess multifamily opportunities and risk, our SMPI tracks price trends for small rental housing properties across 50 U.S. markets.

Available by subscription, our price indices are delivered monthly in a PDF report and in spreadsheet format to enable analysis and segmentation. No matter what type of collateral is being financed or already in the portfolio, our price indices provide the insights you need.
