At CMA Info our philosophy is to provide anyone involved in property with all the tools, resources and as much information as possible - without restrictions.
This means you can:
- investigate sales,
- get to know the market,
- provide a professional service to your clients,
- produce accurate, informative and professional CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) Valuations.
To make this happen, CMA Info uses the latest GIS (Geographic Information Systems) technology combined with interactive maps. In addition, CMA Info provides easy access to an extensive database of both property and ownership information.
- Easier searching
CMA Info incorporates a wide range of user-friendly searches. With very little input you can initiate any one of a number of property search routines which will provide information, not only on the property, but also the latest ownership, sale, transfer and registration data.
- Easier prospecting
The comprehensive search facility enables you to find information about properties potentially for sale, properties suitable for subdivision, blocks of flats, etc...
- Quicker valuations
"Hey Presto" - Using the industry standard approach to producing a CMA you can prepare accurate and professional looking CMA Valuations at the click of a button. You can then choose from a range of reports to include with the valuation.
One of the main reasons for using CMA Info is to find information on a property. Imagine being able to do this quickly and easily. CMA Info provides all the standard searches you would expect as well as many others. You can search by:
- Browsing the interactive map
- Erf number
A single search requiring a minimum of 3 letters will list all Streets, Sectional Title Schemes and Security Estates that contain your input. Then simply select the desired Street, Scheme or Estate for a full owner's list.
- Owner's Name, ID No, etc...
Again a minimum of 2 letters will return all matching owner's in a suburb for both Full Title and Sectional Title
- Property Extent
Looking for properties of an approximate size? One search will give all of these in a suburb for both Full Title and Sectional Title.
- Erf Usage
Need something more specific? Search for vacant land, blocks of flats not yet converted to sectional title and much more...
Once you have located the property you want, simply select it by clicking either on the map or the search results. This will then show full details on the property itself such as ownership, municipal valuations and, where available, accommodation information etc.
In addition, if there are any reported sales or if the property is for sale or currently a show house, then this information can be included.
Once you have found a property that you are interested in you can choose to generate reports for clients, do a CMA Valuation, search for recent sales in the vicinity of this property or get Surveyor General Diagrams.
When doing research it is useful to have a list of sales or transfers in an area.
CMA Info allows you to select either a Sales report (including reported sales) or Transfers report. Reports can be for Full Title, Sectional Title or Commercial / Industrial properties. All searches can be refined to include only those properties in a given price range.
Additional searches include properties currently "For Sale" and "Show House" reports with links to the listing agent.
Geographical Information Systems
GIS (Geographic Information Systems), sounds impressive, but this is simply a map of all the properties with the longitude and latitude of each erf recorded in our data base. When a property is selected by clicking on the map this then links to our extensive data base of property information.
So even though you might not know the exact address or erf number of a property, you should still be able to get the information simply by searching and clicking on the map.
CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) value is an informed price taken from the list of recent sales in the vicinity of the property being valued. CMA Info uses the industry standard accepted CMA valuation.
In places like the USA and UK one finds that suburbs tend to have rows of identical properties. In this situation doing a CMA is relatively easy - the price of a property is the base price for the area i.e. they all have the same starting point. The only change for a particular property being allowances for renovations - hot tubs, sun decks, additional rooms, etc...
In South Africa, the situation is very different. Suburbs are not always uniform and houses differ in size and shape from one property to the next. In Cape Town, for example, one will find a 100 year old Victorian house right next door to a newly built two storey mansion. This can make valuing properties rather difficult as this new property may be the latest sale in the area.
CMA Info valuations allow for this by including a range of sales within the vicinity of the property being valued. The use of our GIS mapping system enables us to find properties in the vicinity of the subject property. This allows us to produce valuations using correct CMA data for both full title and sectional title properties. The resulting CMA shows the sample properties selected for use in the valuation and allows you to exclude any that you do not feel are suitable.
So ... at the click of a mouse ... find the property you are valuing, click on the CMA Valuation, accept the default search criteria or change as you feel necessary, click on continue and there you have it.
You can then select which reports you want and print, save or e-mail the result to your client and prospective buyers.
The CMA Info web site is intended for use only by those involved in property in their professional capacity.
Should you be looking for property information, a valuation of your home or just general information, then we recommend that you approach your local Estate Agent for advice and assistance. On receipt of your 7 day free trial application you will be contacted, during business hours, for confirmation of the above and activation.
The try us out "7 day trial" is intended only for those who have never used the CMA Info website or "7 day trial" before.
