You can download a Word Reader from Microsoft where you can at least read the document.

Lakeyla, You need a program that can open a MS Word document that has a .docx file type. For instance, I was able to open it in Word 2010. I saved it as a pdf, but haven't found where I can upload that file for you.

Thanks, J Scott, this is great. I'm going to be talking with an agent friend of mine about pulling comps on my primary residence to help me decide whether to rent it or sell it. I now feel more prepared to understand and double check his work.
