Fannie Mae has not changed the basic forms, but has changed the way the forms are filled out per the new UAD Version 9/2011, i.e., the Uniform Appraisal Dataset.
For the past 16 months, we have been working with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to add a UAD interface for filling out the 1004, 2055, 1073, and 1075 forms including pick lists for the applicable fields. In addition, we have added the Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac standardized delivery format called MISMO 2.6 GSE XML.
Our July 4, 2011 release allowed appraisers time to prepare for the September 1, 2011 mandatory date.
Even though the HomePuter® software includes complete instructions and interface, there is also further information and "Training Resources" included at this link.
Because keeping this technology up-to-date and meeting deadlines is important to the appraisal industry, we are licensing it separately to insure that customers are kept up-to-date throughout the year.
