New TADA! tool helps you complete the 1004MC in minutes


This is a guest post from Ross Dunham, former Vice President of Information Technology for American Mortgage Express Financial.  Ross holds a BS in Computer Science from the University of Michigan and MBA from San Diego State University.  He also boasts 20 years working for the real estate industry, supporting appraisers, real estate agents, loan officers, and mortgage bankers.  You can find his TADA! tool in the TOTAL Store here.

It was 2009, I was at a restaurant lamenting with a group of San Diego appraisers about the radical changes that were going on in their industry.  My uncle, an appraiser of 25 years, was particularly concerned with the technical requirements involved with the 1004MC. 

My uncle expressed his frustration that not only was he making less money on each transaction, he was now having to do additional work on each file.  To alleviate his anxiety we downloaded the necessary templates into Excel, and I showed him the process of completing the 1004MC.  We got it down to about 10 minutes from start to finish. He handled all the “thinking,” and I handled all the technical mechanics.

It was then that I saw the opportunity to get this process down to just a few minutes.  I asked my uncle, how much time would this would save him?  He replied, a minimum of 1-2 hours a month.  I asked him if he would spend $10-$20 bucks to save a few hours.  He said, heck yes.
