Seminar Description:

The program reviews the underlying risk factors that impact all real estate and the role of equity when acquiring and owning real property. Appraisal assignments generally seek to value the whole property as of an effective date and practitioners use the methods and techniques taught academically and gained while on-the-job. This program will review factors that contribute to many factors including but not limited to overall and yield rates. It views investments from both the lender and equity investors positions.

While the various types of risk will be discussed, tools used by lenders will also be reviewed. Salient issues such as loan-to-value ratios, breakeven analysis, sensitivity need to be addressed when valuing income producing property. While most of the program will be relevant for the general practitioner, many risk issues are confronted by residentially valuers.

This short program will also focus on the role equity plays when evaluating the real property rights. The program looks at the appraiser’s responsibilities as its pertains to the role of equity under USPAP, Interagency Guidelines, and similar documents such as Florida Statutes Title XXXII Regulation of Professions and Occupations which are used to evaluate the reasonableness of an appraisal service.
