    Advanced Residential Report Writing/Part 2

    In Part 2 of a two-course program, you are provided with the tools to write sections of a narrative report. You’ll complete eight writing assignments based on sections of a narrative appraisal report for the case study property you analyzed in Part 1. This course provides you with the tools to 1) apply a wide range of appraisal procedures to solve complex appraisal problems and 2) use a narrative reporting format with confidence to explain and support your conclusions convincingly. If you’re seeking the Appraisal Institute SRA designation, this course and Advanced Residential Applications and Case Studies/Part 1 serves as an alternative to complete the Residential Demonstration of Knowledge requirement.
