We are streamlining real estate valuation

We’re reshaping the future of home valuation by empowering the industry’s best appraisal team with leading-edge technology and tools.

Our Focus

We are a technology company with a hyper-intense focus on bringing modern solutions to the real estate industry.  After going to market in 2021 with our appraisal firm channel, we continue to develop our proprietary platform to craft data analytics and valuation tools with an emphasis on efficiency.  With products built by engineers and tested by appraisers, Aloft is streamlining how valuations can be more data-driven, defensible, and save lenders, AMCs, and appraisers both time and money.

Our Mission

At Aloft, our mission is to empower people to make informed real estate decisions. We provide insight for the homebuyer purchasing a first home, the lender originating a 10,000th loan, and the appraiser who wants to build a data-driven, well-supported report.

Our clients need data to inform their decision-making and Aloft is here to enable a seamless process that benefits the real estate community.
