    Times are tough and some appraisers have no interest and/or no cash to upgrade their appraisalware packages. With that in mind, I took the liberty of writing up the Fannie Form 1004MC in Excel and am now making available for download by anyone who cares to use it.


    Here is the website I've stored the file in:

    This is not a high featured or sophisticated file like what you would get from a professional software vendor, but as far as I can tell it is functional, it does work and it might work okay on an interim basis for some appraisers until they are ready to renew or upgrade their appraisalware subscriptions.

    Please check the form and its contents over carefully before you use it. After all, it's your signature at the bottom of every one of these, not mine. Fannie/Freddie don't allow modification of their verbiage, but as far as programming or the math functions you are welcome to make changes as necessary to suit your use.

    There are apparently already a few appraisers who have already figured out how to perform a single download from their MLS systems, sort the data into groups and develop the statistics used to fill in these fields. If one were to load those into this form they could probably save themselves a lot of time. I haven't attempted to do it with this Excel file because the available data will vary by locale.

    Several people have already downloaded this file and checked it over, but if you run across an error or have any suggestions for improvements my email address in in the notes at the bottom of the spreadsheet.

    I'm hopeful that this might be of help to some appraisers. Pass it forward, ya?


    Incidentally, you can either insert a jpeg of your signature directly onto the spreadsheet itself using the "Insert+ Picture" commands in Excel, or you can make a stamp of a jpeg in Adobe using the "make stamp" function in the "tools" section. You can also use a digital signature in Adobe.

    Thanks George. You're right, I've got the interest and no cash.
