Zaio Corp., a Canadian company that tracks property values in the U.S., is in talks to acquire Axis Appraisal Management Solutions in San Rafael, Calif.

It would be the second recent acquisition by Zaio in the real estate valuation field in this country after shuttering its U.S. property database unit, Zaio Inc., in October 2008. Last month, it finalized its initial acquisition of a 60% stake in Valuation Vision, a Carlsbad, Calif., provider of broker price opinions, and announced an agreement to acquire the remaining 40% stake from Kirchmeyer Group.
