This course engages appraisers in practical writing exercises necessary to produce convincing appraisal reports in daily practice. Course objectives are achieved through the discussion and application of residential valuation procedures, grammar rules and writing techniques, and specific writing assignments based on a residential case study. Participants will practice writing effective narrative comments for form appraisal reports and learn how to explain valuation procedures and conclusions to users of reports. The techniques applied in this course are useful in real-life situations that complicate routine assignments.
