General 7.5
$98.00  Add to Cart 

Finally, a course that tells you everything you need to know about legitimate value that matters in today's rigorous appraisal world.

Calling all real estate agents, contractors, builders and appraisers...our expert instructor takes you from the glitzy showroom to covert back alleys of valuing products and features of homes with the focal lens of an appraiser, contractor/builder AND real estate professional in mind.

You'll learn the universal language used by appraisers that contractors and real estate agents can translate to knowledge that pays when advising clients on everything from product selections to appropriate offers on property or identifying an appropriate listing price for selling a property. You’ll acquire an insider's view of how value is defined and assigned by the appraiser. Also, you'll understand the consumer criteria of price, longevity, performance, aesthetics, and resale for a variety of property elements. Learn what does and does not have monetary value in an appraiser’s eyes with a snapshot of the essential tools and assessment methods used to establish the ultimate value of a property. Also, learn where value lies from a cost approach so you can help your clients identify poor quality in spite of acceptable appearance. Find out what the six surprising low-cost, high-value materials are, what type of siding lasts the longest, and which foundation type will save you the most money in the long run.

Learn about the real differences in construction quality, what has monetary value and what has aesthetic value alone. The instructor translates otherwise confusing terms and definitions into useful information you can communicate with your clients. Whether your interest is in existing property, new construction or proposed renovations, you’ll pick up essential information to increase your professional competence, evident in your next client conversation.

This course has been approved for real estate, appraisal, and contractor continuing education for 7.5 hours of continuing education credit.  This course does not include the energy hour for contractors.

General 7.5
$98.00  Add to Cart 

Finally, a course that tells you everything you need to know about legitimate value that matters in today's rigorous appraisal world.

Calling all real estate agents, contractors, builders and appraisers...our expert instructor takes you from the glitzy showroom to covert back alleys of valuing products and features of homes with the focal lens of an appraiser, contractor/builder AND real estate professional in mind.

You'll learn the universal language used by appraisers that contractors and real estate agents can translate to knowledge that pays when advising clients on everything from product selections to appropriate offers on property or identifying an appropriate listing price for selling a property. You’ll acquire an insider's view of how value is defined and assigned by the appraiser. Also, you'll understand the consumer criteria of price, longevity, performance, aesthetics, and resale for a variety of property elements. Learn what does and does not have monetary value in an appraiser’s eyes with a snapshot of the essential tools and assessment methods used to establish the ultimate value of a property. Also, learn where value lies from a cost approach so you can help your clients identify poor quality in spite of acceptable appearance. Find out what the six surprising low-cost, high-value materials are, what type of siding lasts the longest, and which foundation type will save you the most money in the long run.

Learn about the real differences in construction quality, what has monetary value and what has aesthetic value alone. The instructor translates otherwise confusing terms and definitions into useful information you can communicate with your clients. Whether your interest is in existing property, new construction or proposed renovations, you’ll pick up essential information to increase your professional competence, evident in your next client conversation.
