The Fundamentals of Real Property Appraisal is designed to provide the students with an understanding and working knowledge of the procedures and techniques required to estimate the market value of vacant and improved properties. This course concentrates on the skills necessary for estimating the market value of properties using two approaches to value: the cost approach and the sales comparison approach. The Fundamentals of Real Property Appraisal utilizes lectures, classroom discussion, and homework problems to emphasize the main concepts and procedures taught in the course.

Day 1: Unique and Challenging Homes – This one-day workshop deals with unique and challenging home appraisal problems and by use of case studies and actual market data, steps the participants through the appraisal process of measuring value and/or value loss on such unique properties as tiny homes, container homes, straw bale homes and many more.

Day 2: Valuation of Barndominiums – Purpose of this workshop is to provide some guidance and suggestions on the process of analysis and valuation of metal buildings converted to living areas.  What we call Barndominiums. These are structures that appear to be metal clad farm buildings but part or all the structure has been finished on the interior and used as living area. Some are used as temporary living area while the owners construct a new stick-built home, while others are built as a permanent residence. The framing can be pole or steel.

Day 3: Valuation of High-End & Difficult Homes – Purpose of this workshop is to provide some guidance and suggestions on the process of data collection and analysis of high-end and difficult residential properties. Information from various areas of the U.S. will be used to help establish some processes and procedures. Images and property characteristics of sales and listed properties will be used. Topics discussed include: USPAP review, general information, cost approach, sales comparison approach, income approach, non-value analysis and articles of interest.

Day 4: Appraising After a Disaster or in Traumatic Events – Stuff happens! Assessment officials are constantly faced with appraising property after a disaster – whether natural or man-made. Disasters discussed in this workshop will help you make some preparations in advance and possibly provide a blueprint in case your jurisdiction becomes affected by a disaster. Disasters are traumatic events but for the assessor’s not all traumatic events are disasters. In this workshop we will also provide some examples of extreme growth or economic changes and some steps that an assessor/appraiser can use to help make these extreme changes manageable. These traumatic events are a separate issue from disasters.
