Find clarity in a haze of misconceptions and false expectations regarding appraisal inspection.
“If you don’t have all the facts correct, you can’t apply judgment.” G.N. Bloedow.
The appraiser’s ability to gather facts essential to the property has a direct correlation to the integrity of valuation results. To complicate matters, appraisers, real estate agents, and clients all have misconceptions and false expectations of the appraiser's role and responsibilities during the appraisal inspection.
This class sets the record straight and details the inspection from many points in the process, such as preparing for the inspection, neighborhood observations, expectations while at the property, comparable observations, and so much more. In this course, the instructor clearly articulates what an appraiser does and doesn't do during the inspection of a property when developing an appraisal. Together, the instructor and students will sort through how assignment conditions affect the appraiser’s inspection. Through instructor-led discussions, case studies, videos, and pictures, the students will leave this course with a complete understanding of real estate appraisal inspections.
