Interview With: Appraisal Buzz - June 24, 2004

Recently Appraisal Buzz spoke with Kevin Musick, Managing Director of United Systems Software,
a long-time appraisal software provider.

Read the Full Interview

New Form Announcement - June 4, 2004

United Systems is pleased to announce that Fannie Mae recently released its redesign of the
URAR, the industry's flagship valuation form. The redesign effort was intended to make the
product "more concise" and to address issues uncovered by Fannie's referal of "unacceptable
reports" to state regulatory investigators. The new URAR is also a prelude to redesign of other
industry forms, including the Small Residential Income Property, Cooperative Interest Appraisal,
Manufactured Housing Report, and more.

The new URAR form is available on our Web site here. Other documents are also available.
