“Companies using XSite Reports can demonstrate to government regulatoryagencies, stockholders and customers that they are proactively addressingthe entire valuation issues that are plaguing our economy,” continuesBurnstein. “Going forward, every commercial loan that is originated withina banking institution will need to have something comparable to an XSiteReport in the file to justify the loan decision.”

At the core of every XSite Report is the XSite Report Index (XRI), apatent-pending objective property evaluation scoring model built around theintended use of a property. XSite’s industry-specific andcustomer-specific XRI models allow for the comparative assessment of manyproperties for one intended use and can identify the best use of a specificproperty. The XRI distills thousands of analysis variables and intended usecriteria into a simple “go/no-go” decision-making traffic light indicator.
