Appraisal CE: Beyond Lending Appraisals

We’ve all heard the advice “don’t put all your eggs in one basket.” The same can be said for a professional appraisal practice: don’t perform only one type of appraisal work for only one type of client. In many cases, appraisers — both residential and general commercial — simply provide appraisals for lending clients. However, appraisers can expand their appraisal practices by offering other types of appraisal services. By diversifying their practices, appraisers strengthen their technical skills, increase the quality of their written and oral reports, ensure a better understanding of appraisal work, and lessen their reliance on one sector or type of client.

This course walks appraisers through the possibilities and requirements of non-lender appraisal work, including tax rebuttal, price negotiation, pre-purchase, pre-listing, divorce and estate work. Students will be exposed to the whole appraisal process and explore the components necessary for private appraisal work, including deciding whether to use forms, a narrative approach or a combination. This course will also examine USPAP as the minimum foundation for the development and reporting of the appraisals, and you’ll learn about supplement requirements that are unique to various types of private appraisal work. Finally, this course will explore and emphasize general best practices.

1:00 PM - 4:30 PM
