Leigh Budlong, founder, former commercial real estate valuation expert.
Seeing technology impact every aspect of real estate, it seemed curious nothing had progressed with local zoning. Leigh Budlong contacted her data providers and asked about their adding data in "zoning" fields often found to be blank or incomplete. She was told, "it is too granular" and isn't part of the standard county-level data. Given her background in valuation as a former MAI appraiser, she knew the technical aspects of zoning unlocked the potential to create better quality evaluations, assessments and build a truly land value-oriented automated valuation model.
