Create a CMA is located in the Main Menu under the Search category.
2. You are now presented with the search page and the Create a CMA menu at the top.
2A. The A section is where you may enter your subject MLS# or TMK. Our example is using an MLS number.
Enter your MLS number and click the arrow. Notice a summary of the listing is shown in the box below. This tells us the search will look for similar properties with + or – of
15% of the living area within the same plat.
2B. Set your desired sale date range. Either use the one or two years back selection or enter in a custom date range.
(*Located below: “Include TMK data” will give you matches of sales that have not had MLS listings entered into the system)
2C. Not required but if using the Personalize section this will place a header on the search results.
3. Click Search to run the report.
*If the number of comparables are not satisfactory you may want to set a further date range or expand the area of search. Remember, by default the search is only looking at
the same plat as the subject property. In the TMK section of the main search enter in the area you wish to search. This will expand the search area well beyond the same
You may also want to enter in a subdivision, zip code, etc. Any type of area search will override the default plat only search.
Feel free to add in other search parameters to the request. Again, by default the only parameter the system will use is + or – 15% of the living area. If you wish to only include
5 bedrooms, etc. you will need to place this request in the main search area.
* If the subject property is vacant land the system will look for +/- 15% of land area
