FUSION, a low end USPAP compliant appraisal and report will be posted on the site very soon. It is free, but it utilizes updated verions of the Regression+ and the USL Documenter for it to run. If you purchased either of these products in the past year the updates are free. If you purchased over a year ago the update will only be $25.00 plus S&H.
Also, an updated Total Solution will posted the week of August 16th. This will meet the recent FANNIE MAE required changes. This most recent Fannie requirement is better than using the cumulative listing count, but statistically has some issues. One sample from each period for the number of listings may produce unreliable results. The Total Solution for the 1004mc form is now a FREE download. I guess you will just have buy something else (ha ha).
