Anna Swaim

This 7-hour course will begin at 8:30 a.m. and end at 4:30 p.m.

Valuation methods vary depending on intended use and user related to property rights. Learn about the history of property rights in the United States and how they are valued under different intended uses for appraisals. Gain a thorough understanding of how buyer motivations, toward property, can affect the value of real estate. Through a series of examples, discussions and observed scenarios, learn how the value of both residential and commercial properties will change with varying exceptions. The Dark Store theory is addressed, including the history and misunderstandings about the theory, and examples of sale lease-back transactions and build-to-suit transactions may change the motivations of the typical buyer. Enhance your understanding of how highest and best use relates to property rights through several case studies.
