(Form FHLMC 70/FNMA 1004)

The industry-standard appraisal report for single-family residential properties.


What is a Uniform Residential Appraisal Report (URAR 1004)?

This is the industry-standard appraisal report type for single-family properties. It is the most commonly used report format for single-family appraisals.


Property Types

This report is for a one-unit property or one-unit property with an accessory unit. This includes a unit in a planned development. 

The form is not for land, manufactured homes or condominium units.


Inspection

A full interior and exterior inspection of the subject property is made by the appraiser for this report type.

An inspection made by an appraiser is not the same as a "home inspection" made by a property inspector.

Comparable sales may or may not be inspected from the street by the appraiser, depending on the assignment parameters.


 

Standardized Format

Easy to compare to other appraisals.

Good Price

Cheaper than a narrative appraisal report.

Complete Appraisal

Full interior inspection and analysis.

Unique Properties

Can be difficult for multiple parcels or properties with a lot of land or other unique features.

About

The Uniform Residential Appraisal Report is a "form" format meaning that is it has pre-defined sections.

It was developed by lending institutions for a standardized look and feel.

Appraisers fill out the form and insert data about the subject, neighborhood, comparable sales, valuation and more.

Appraisers include additional data not part of the form such as pictures, maps, valuation analyses and more, depending on the property and assignment.

Most appraisers use software such as A La Mode, ClickFORMS, ACI, etc. to speed up the process of filling out sections of the form and assisting in the valuation.


When to Use

This report type is best for practically all uses.

It is most commonly used for:

  Buying/Selling

  Lending

  Pre-Listing

  Litigation

  Tax Appeal

  Estate Settlement/Date of Death

  Almost All Typical Appraisal Uses

  Can be difficult to read and make sense of if you are not used to seeing them.
