The 35-hour Advanced Market Analysis and Highest & Best Use course implements a blended learning approach, which includes a pre-class, two-hour online session combined with 30 hours of live online (synchronous) education.
What is live online (synchronous) education? How does it work?
Combining the analytical processes of market analysis, highest and best use, and income valuation, this course is intended for those who have taken and passed the General Appraiser Market Analysis and Highest & Best Use course and
have a thorough understanding of the mathematical and financial principles necessary to perform appraisals of income-producing properties.
Building on the Level B marketability studies that were applied in General Appraiser Market Analysis and Highest & Best Use, you will perform Level C marketability studies using fundamental demand analysis and study several
real estate markets in a fictional city.
The economic base of the community is explored, and it is used as the subject and example for both physical and economic forces that affect all communities and consequently all real estate.
The remainder of the course consists of four case studies (apartment and condominium conversion, retail, industrial, and land with potential for mixed-use development) that are intended to demonstrate both the power of fundamental
market analysis and its application to highest and best use decisions.
Note. Because this course builds on concepts learned in the Appraisal Institute’s General Market Analysis & Highest and Best Use course, it is HIGHLY recommended that you take the Appraisal Institute’s General Market
Analysis & Highest and Best Use course before you take this advanced course.
By taking both courses, you should gain a solid knowledge base of market analysis and highest and best use concepts. If you elect only to take this course, be advised that you’ll need to factor in additional study time to learn the
general concepts presented in the previous course.
