Request for Proposals: Land Valuation
The Appraisal Institute is looking for one day seminar proposals covering land valuation. Key topics to address within the seminar are suggested below. However, the seminar would go beyond this content.
Broad Topics to Cover:
- Significant emphasis on Market Analysis and Highest and Best Use
- Supply and demand issues
- Raw Land vs. Site
- Characteristics of Land and Site that may impact value
- Zoning classifications (e.g. understanding the zoning code so legally permissible uses of highest and best use can be solved)
- Valuation Methods (Sales Comparison and Income Capitalization approaches)
- Alternative methods of applying the Sales Comparison Approach
- Discounting the value if the highest and best use is for a phased development and no comparable sales of large tracts of land exist
- Developing an opinion of value by deriving contributory value of sections of the property
- Comparing listings with older transactions if current comparable sales are not available
- Qualitative analysis methods
- Reading available data from the market to arrive at land values (e.g. extracting land value from other data such as improved property sales or market rentals)
- Basic regression techniques should be introduced as applied to land valuation
- Case study focusing on developing a land value in a market with no or few land sales could be presented.
Length of Seminar: 7 hours
