As you may know, shortly after the Fannie Mae announcement back in November of 2008, AREA asked GA MLS and FMLS to assist appraisers in gathering and analyzing the data necessary to complete the new Market Conditions form (1004MC). In a relatively short period of time, GA MLS has delivered an outstanding product and made it available to its subscribers. FMLS is still working on some research tools.

If you haven't seen the updated GA MLS reports yet, check out GA MLS Pro at  - enter your user name and password for your GA MLS account. You will have access to a brand new analytical tool that will provide all of the data needed for the 1004MC form and a great deal more. A new search map is available, two year look back, month to month analysis, foreclosure statistics, and colorful graphs that you can add to your reports to spice them up a bit.

You do not need any special software. GA MLS is making it very easy for appraisers to complete this new required form. If you are outside of the metro area you might want to contact your local provider to see if they can follow GA MLS's lead.  

AREA is including review of this new data feature in its Declining Market Appraisals which is taught each month in the Acworth/Woodstock locations. For schedules, please see

We will keep you updated on future resources. Let us know if you have any questions or we may assist you with any future educational needs.
