I'm looking for a little brainstorming regarding the word "comparable" and the 1004MC. The comparable properties I'm gong to draw data from for the "gridding" of the form will of course contain the sales I eventually choose as the most comparable sales, but I did look at many more homes as comparable. Much like the typical buyer looks for a home. They may know they want a home in a certain location, or maybe a certain type of home such as a cape or a 8-4-2.5 colonial. So maybe they're are "20" comparable sales that I would consider when analyzing the market for value trends. That doesn't mean I would consider them all specifically for the value for the Subject property. I of course look at them, but may eliminate them for specific reasons, as an appraiser does. I'd like to make the reader of the appraisal understand that process, and as a result a destinction between "the comparable sales" and "comparable sales." Such a foolish thing to bind an appraiser with a word on a form, but it is the way of Fannie and Freddie.
