To fax me an order:
Many of our clients prefer to order appraisals from us via fax. Faxing has until now had its drawbacks: the transmission may not come through clearly or pages get shuffled and lost. You might misplace our fax number, not have an order form handy, or not want to take the time to make out a cover sheet.
With my faxable order form there’s a barcode that prints out on the order form. When you fax it, a special software application reads the barcode. A digital copy of the order form is routed right to a special directory in our system, specific to that order, and we’re notified it’s arrived (even if we’re out of the office!).
Better yet: The software reads the subject information and gets it ready for our form filling application, so we get a running start. If we do need to call for more information, we know immediately, without your fax sitting on the fax machine waiting for someone to pick it up and type it in.
Our LOS might have ready-to-print appraisal requests already. No problem – use that instead! Just download a cover sheet from here. It has a similar barcode that will accomplish everything our own order form does. Print it out, make it the first page of your fax, and we’re in business!
Don’t want to visit our website every time you need to order an appraisal? Just print out order forms or cover sheets in advance and keep them by the fax machine. Filling out our order form by hand works, too. A digital copy still gets delivered to our system and we can start the report promptly.
DirectFax saves you time by letting you be sure the fax gets to us and doesn’t get lost in the shuffle. It’s just one of the ways we at Timberline Appraising Inc. strive to help you close loans faster.
