Choose Your Info!
You can add additional fields of information to your Top CMA and it will pull relevant information from your MLS. For example, if it’s a detached home maybe you would like to add “Lot Acres” or if it’s a condo you might prefer to add “Parking Spaces” instead.

Enter Subject Property.
Type the address slowly to see if it appears in the drop down menu. Why slowly? Because as you type, auto-complete suggestions will be populated.
  1. Listings previously on the MLS: Selecting it from the dropdown enables the software to pull relevant information. (Even archived listings will show here).
  2. Brand New Listings (Never previously listed): If you have a brand new listing, type in the subject property address and enter the postal code. Click on the screen (on any open space) with the mouse. You can then add in the information on the left hand side manually and click done to close that box.

Choose subject property photo
Make sure that you have the desired photo of the subject property selected. Typically the system chooses the last picture uploaded into the MLS®. If you would like a different photo, simply click on the picture screen and upload from your computer files. Below, are a few ways to find a photo of the subject property.
  1. Google Maps: YES! Right in Top CMA you can easily pull an image of your subject property using Google Street View.
  2. Previous Listing: If this property was listed previously, Top CMA will automatically try to pull the image from the last time that this property was listed on the MLS®
  3. Be Creative (Best Option): Take your own photo of the subject property (if you have the chance). This is by far the best option. Your report will look 10X better and so will the image quality. Previous photos of this property or Google Maps usually provide a much lower quality and resolution... So we recommend, snapping a few of your own photos if you have the chance to view the property in person.

Now, it's time to select our comparable properties. These are the properties that we are looking at to determine the market value of the subject property. Below, we have included two different methods you can use to select/find your comparable properties. See the option that works best for you.
  1. Copy and Paste MLS IDs: If you have a system to find comparable properties already- Perfect! Gather the MLS IDs and click “Paste MLS IDs”. Simply load them into the system by copying and pasting. Separate the MLS IDs with a comma and no space.
