    • The Time Adjustment Rate for Sale Comparisons in Land Mix Valuations can now be modified from the grid on the Approach tab. Doing so will recalculate the Time Adjustment and Adjusted Price for the Sale Comparison.
    • The option to import Subject data from CamoAg has been added. To use this feature, it must be enabled in the new API Configurations menu (Admin -> API Configurations -> CamoAg)

      Here the ClientId and Client Secret for the CamoAg API Client are entered. This is used to authenticate requests from Maven to CamoAg. These values are generated when adding a new API Client to a CamoAg Account:

      With the CamoAg API Configuration enabled, Subjects can be imported from a FarmSale created in CamoAg. The “Clone Subject” menu item has been replaced with “Import Subject”. The new Import Subject contains the option to Clone a Subject as before, and will also have the option to import from CamoAg once enabled:

      With the CamoAg option selected, the ID of a FarmSale can be entered and imported as a Subject:

      On importation, some fields for the Subject will be populated with data from the FarmSale such as State, County, Acres, Section, Township, and Range. The Sale point and polygons for Farm Parcels are also imported and placed on the map.

    • A script can be used to customize how data from CamoAg is applied to imported Subjects in Maven. The script can be edited from a page by using the “Edit Import Script” link on the CamoAg setup page:

      From the new page, a custom C# script can be tested by importing a FarmSale from CamoAg. The FarmSale ID needs to be entered and the “Test” button clicked. This will import the FarmSale and run whatever script is entered in the text field after importation. The results of the import are then shown on the right.

      Clicking “Save Script” will save the script for future use. Whenever importing Subject from CamoAg this script will be used after the default import process.


  • Additional custom adjustments can now be added to Sale Comparisons in a Land Mix Approach. Other Adjustments are added by clicking the ‘+’ button on the Adjustments row of the Sale Comparison grid. Adding one will include fields for editing.

    An Adjustment consists of two fields: The Name and the Type. The Name can be anything, it describes what is being adjusted for on the Sale. The Type indicates how the adjustment will be calculated. The options are Percent, LumpSum, and Qualitative.

    For a Percent based Adjustment, the Adjustment Amount is calculated as a percentage of the Per-Unit Land Value only. This value is displayed on a new row above the Other Adjustments. When entering a percentage value for an adjustment the Adjustment Amount should get set based on this value.

    Red: Per-unit value of Land only.
    Blue: Per-unit value of Improvements only.

    In the above Adjustment, 10% of $7278.13 is $727.81, so this value is automatically calculated for the Adjustment.

    For LumpSum Adjustments, the value entered is the total amount the Sale is being adjusted by. The actual value of the Adjustment is per-unit based, so the lump sum amount is divided by the Sale’s Effective Units to produce an Amount.

    In the above Adjustment, $40,000 is divided by 80 to come up with a per-unit Adjustment value of $500.

    Qualitative Adjustments have no calculated amount. The per-unit amount of the Adjustment is simply entered by the user.

    For all Adjustment types, the actual amount of the Adjustment can be directly entered by the user as well. Whatever amount entered is used, bypassing any calculations.

    To delete an Adjustment click the trash can icon next to its Name.

    Descriptions for the Sale Comparisons’ adjustment can also be entered. This is a text field that can be set to anything. It is intended to display the value/property/quality of the Sale Comparison that corresponds to the name of the Adjustment. For example, and Adjustment named “Physical Access” may have Descriptions of “Gravel” or “Paved” for the Sale Comparisons. When adding a Sale Comparison or changing the name of an Adjustment, an attempt is made to auto-populate the Description field of Sale Comparisons based on the Adjustment Name. If this cannot be auto-filled, it can still be filled out by the user.
