April 22nd, 2011 Comments off
Chandler Reports is excited to announce many new changes to our Shelby County residential service!
These new tools provide you easier access to our most commonly used reports in addition to new features and reports that provide you the ability to customize comparables the way that you want to view them!
On the upper left-hand side of our Detailed Property Profile report we have provided menus with simplified access to our automatic and compressed comparable reports, GIS map, tax map, MapQuest map, Assessor Information, Foreclosure Effect Report, Market Trend Reports and a snapshot of public records available for the property from The Daily News Online. If you are a Daily News Online subscriber, you can click the “Learn More” link to view the public records. If you are not a subscriber and would like information on The Daily News Online, please contact us.
At the bottom of the Detailed Property Profile report, under the Assessor and Property Tax information you will see links that direct you to the City and/or County tax collection sites. This allows you to automatically research tax payments for properties.
The following “Report Tools” are now available on the left-hand side of our Compressed and Detailed Comparable reports.
  • Remove Bank Sales: With a click of this button, bank sales are removed from the comparable report and the minimum, maximum and average prices at the bottom of the report are updated.  
  • Show Bank Sales Only: This allows you to view only the comparable banks sales with updated min/max/avg prices. 
  • Search by Radius: Enter your desired radius in the “Radius Miles” box and then click the “Search by Radius” button to see all comparable sales within the radius you’ve entered.
Under the “Additional Reports” heading you now have the ability to see all foreclosure activity surrounding the subject property. When you click the “View Area Foreclosures” button a new window opens displaying all recorded foreclosures located near your subject property over the past year. In the remarks section you can review the amount of the foreclosure labeled as F:######.  
You can now “Filter Sales” on our comparable reports to view sales for a specific timeframe including the last 6 months, the last 12 months or the last 18 months. By clicking the button of your choice, you have the ability to only see sales for that timeframe with updated min/max/avgs at the bottom of the report.  
Please note: These new features work individually and do not allow you the ability to use multiple options to narrow down the search results. For example, if you opt to remove bank sales from your report you will not have the option to then filter the non-bank sales for the last 6 months.
You can now easily view our Market Trend reports for Shelby, Fayette, and Tipton Counties under the “Market Trends” menu.
We value your feedback! Please tell us what you think about these new features! Click here to complete our brief survey! 
As always, we are here to support you! Please contact us 901-458-6419 or if you have any questions!
