Hybrid Appraisals

Whether you call them bifurcated, desktop or hybrid appraisals, these types of appraisals are becoming more prevalent every day in the industry. These are the “valuation products” where one person performs an inspection of the subject property, uploads the data to a site where an appraiser accesses this information, and performs a desktop appraisal. Can you do these? Should you do these? If you do these, what steps must you take to protect yourself against potential liability?

This appraisal CE course will dive into the details of hybrid appraisals to help you better understand these appraisals and assess how they might fit into your appraisal practice. 

This course is submitted for 3.5 hours Wisconsin Appraiser and Assessor CE credit as well as Minnesota Appraiser CE and Michigan Appraiser CE credit.

Smart Homes

Technology is continuing to move into houses, from Ring doorbells to Alexa or Siri on the kitchen counter. Some of the devices being installed in homes offer great convenience to the homeowners, including enhanced security, energy savings features, and the ability for older people to live alone but be monitored by family members. As appraisers, we have to recognize what these devices are, and then decide if they contribute to value or not. We also have to consider whether or not, moving forward, if a lack of technology in a house creates functional obsolescence. 

This appraisal course will explore modern smart home technologies and how the presence of these technologies affect appraisal practice.

This course is submitted for 3.5 hours Wisconsin Appraiser and Assessor CE credit as well as Minnesota Appraiser CE and Michigan Appraiser CE credit.
