NOTE: As of January 1, 2020, TrendSheet 4 and TrendSheet Lite will be discontinued. As of then, we will no longer support, sell or update TrendSheet 4 or TrendSheet Lite. TrendSheet Companion will still be available.
A Market Analysis, Sales Grid Analysis, and Automation Tool
TrendSheet Lite calculates the 1004MC, provides a thorough market analysis, has valuable adjustment indicators (based on paired sales and sensitivity analysis), and works in nearly all MLS systems in the country! In order to do this we had to remove a few of the features from TrendSheet 4. The only major features you will not have access to are the ability to see trends in distressed sales and seller concessions, dynamic commentary, and grouped data (aka aggregate differences) analysis.
TrendSheet Lite is for appraisers that do not work with an MLS system covered by TrendSheet 4. If your MLS has the ability to set up a custom export then TrendSheet Lite will work for you. The following MLS platforms will work with TrendSheet Lite and most MLS systems use at least one of them: Matrix, Fusion, MLXChange, Paragon, Flex, Rapattoni, InnoVia, and Tempo. If your MLS platform is not in that list but it allows for custom export setup then it should still work.
If you purchase TrendSheet Lite, you will be given the option to upgrade to TrendSheet 4 if and when we get it working in your MLS. The cost to upgrade will simply be the difference in price between TrendSheet Lite and TrendSheet 4, which is currently $40. TrendSheet Lite looks identical to TrendSheet 4 but all the features that do not work in the Lite version are blacked out until it's upgraded to TrendSheet 4.
Check out the video above for a breakdown of the differences from TrendSheet 4 to TrendSheet Lite.
ONE TIME COST - NO SUBSCRIPTION FEES, ANNUAL FEES, MONTHLY FEES, ETC.

TrendSheet Lite is a market analysis, sales grid analysis, and automation tool designed for residential real estate appraisers that works with any form-filler (features below noted with * only work in a la mode's TOTAL). It can either be integrated into a la mode's TOTAL appraisal software or it can be used as a stand-alone spreadsheet if you use any other form-filling software. In order to provide accurate calculations for competing properties and the defined neighborhood, TrendSheet Lite utilizes the data you export from your own MLS system.

Save Time, Reduce Typing Errors, and Increase Consistency
TrendSheet Lite automatically calculates and transfers your 1004MC numeric data, top of Page 2 numbers (Page 3 for a condo), and it calculates and transfers the condominium section of the 1004MC (when using that form). TrendSheet Lite can also be customized to automatically transfer any other data to your appraisal form as well. *The ability to transfer data directly into your report only works if you are using a la mode's TOTAL form-filler.
Greater Understanding of Competing Data and Neighborhood Data
In addition to calculating your 1004MC data, TrendSheet Lite provides many other metrics for competing properties, the entire neighborhood, and your condo project (when applicable). TrendSheet Lite also analyzes up to two years of data at once providing comparison metrics, percentage change per month, and graphs. Appraisers told us they wanted charts so we included a total of 20 of them (10 for competing data and 10 for the entire neighborhood data).
TrendSheet Lite has adjustment indicators based upon an analysis of your actual sales grid. It provides 3 different adjustment indicators based on two methodologies for the following features: GLA, lot size, age, bedroom count, bathroom count, vehicle storage, and number of stories. *These indicators only work when used with a la mode's TOTAL form-filler.
TrendSheet has been tested and used extensively since December 2013 by myself (I use it on every appraisal I complete) and hundreds of TrendSheet users throughout the country.
Unlocked and Unlimited
TrendSheet Lite is a fully customizable spreadsheet that has not been locked in any way, allowing you to modify it in any way you see fit (i.e. alter formulas, add your own calculations, etc). The purchase of TrendSheet Lite also includes a license to use it on all of the devices that you personally use (your PC, laptop, tablet, etc) although it is licensed as one copy per appraiser. Since there are no subscription fees it includes unlimited use for life.
If we fully customize TrendSheet for your area so that all the capabilities are unlocked, you will be able to upgrade to TrendSheet 4 for a $40 one-time charge.
Visit our YouTube channel for videos detailing the features of TrendSheet and how to use it and you can go to our TrendSheet Lite setup page for instructions. Many appraisers also find our Frequently Asked Questions page helpful.
***TrendSheet Lite is designed for use with single-family residences and condominiums (not multi-family properties) and it is specifically designed to work accurately with UAD reports. In non-UAD reports the paired sales and sensitivity analysis may not function correctly unless you type up the grid using UAD-compliant formatting.
