In this course, you will learn how to choose comparable sales in a challenging assignment, what assignments require the use of the cost and income approaches, as well has how to collect and analyze data for a unique property. You will learn how to determine the comparability of markets, how to use sales from comparable markets for a location adjustment, and proper methods for applying adjustments. Advanced Residential Applications & Case Studies will also review how to develop and communicate sound conclusions with supportive documentation.

A financial calculator is recommended for this class. Students should be familiar with and bring to class their own financial calculator. Instructors will teach under the assumption that all students have the necessary knowledge to use their financial calculator.

Topics:

  • Recognizing challenging assignments

Appraisal forms ask for architectural design of the subject and comparable properties. Many multiple listing services (MLS) have a field for architectural style as well. Contemporary and traditional are often used in MLS listings and appraisal reports. FNMA does not allow descriptors like average, two stories, or typical, and they modified these sections in the UAD format in 2013. Both appraisers and real estate agents struggle with the design of newer homes and reviewer revisions to the designs used in their reports. You will be provided with descriptions, pictures, and floor plans that will aid in identification of the architectural design of the houses in neighborhoods you work in regularly.

Topics include:

  • Identifying designs by year of construction, roof types, exterior materials
  • Fenestration and ornamentation of historic and newer house designs
  • Specific features of architectural designs
  • Resources to aid in identifying architecture

This course raises the appraiser's level of awareness of the scope of work involved with assignments other than the everyday single-family residential appraisal.  From identifying what qualifies as a 'complex' assignment to the appraiser's ability to competently complete the assignment to understanding the non-traditional methods and techniques used throughout the appraisal process to develop a valuation, this course covers it all.  Property types such as, mixed-use, unusual, income-producing, and one-of-a-kind are used within several case studies to reinforce the teaching.

An HP12C calculator, or its equivalent, is recommended for this class.  Students should be familiar with and bring to class their own financial calculator.  Instructors will teach under the assumption that all students have the necessary knowledge to use their financial calculator.

Topics:

  • Symptoms of a complex assignment
  • Appraising complex sites
  • Appraising complex residential property
  • Appraising historic property
  • Appraising mixed-use and small commercial property

  • You get access to the same great Kaplan Real Estate Education content and instructors.
  • Our courses offer opportunities to engage with other students and your instructor.

This two-day course will show you how to perform an extensive market analysis to support all steps in the valuation process with special emphasis on highest & best use conclusions.

Market analysis and highest and best use analysis are at the heart of every residential real estate valuation. In this detailed course you will get a summary of the appraisal concepts and principles that relate these two critical analyses. Through interesting discussion and case study examples you’ll learn what information needs to be gathered, how to organize it, and how to perform the analyses.

The How-To’s of Market Analysis

After reviewing valuation principles you’ll review the steps to perform the market analysis. You’ll learn how to analyze property productivity. Location, its description and analysis, will be covered in detail. You’ll also learn how to analyze the many forces that influence value, including social ideals and standards, economic fluctuations, and government regulations.

Highest and Best Use Analysis

Highest and best use is among the most important of all considerations when trying to estimate the value of real property. By estimating the value of the land when put to alternative uses, the appraiser can decide whether the land is presently serving its highest and best use, or whether it could be put to a different use that would substantially increase its value.

This course has been approved by the Minnesota Commissioner of Commerce for 15 hours of appraisal licensing education.

Topics:

  • Steps to perform market analysis
  • How to analyze property productivity
  • Highest and best use principles
  • Four criteria for testing highest and best use
  • Steps to take for testing highest and best use
  • Property as improved
  • Site as though vacant
  • Highest and best use and USPAP
  • Applications of highest and best use analysis
  • Federally mandated one hour final exam must be passed for course credit

Using real data, students will be able to understand how to gather data, analyze data, and draw conclusions for the neighborhood. Students will understand how seasonal, increasing, and decreasing markets work and display in the statistical analysis of a market area.

Each student will gain a better understanding of analyzing different aspects of the market including:

  • Seasonal anomalies in markets

  • Impact of outliers
  • Supporting market conditions adjustments

This is the 15-Hour National Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) Course of The Appraisal Foundation. The 15-Hour National USPAP Course focuses on the requirements for ethical behavior and competent performance by appraisers that are set forth in the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). This course is unique in that it is developed by The Appraisal Foundation and is revised on a periodic basis to stay current with the latest edition of USPAP.

This course is designed to aid appraisers seeking competency in USPAP, in all areas of appraisal practice including those subject to state licensing or certification and continuing education requirements imposed by professional organizations, client groups, or employers.
