    Course Description

    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.

    PRECLASS VIDEO AND ASSIGNMENT!

    To ensure success in this course, it is important that you watch a short preclass video, which details the unique expectations not only for this course/package, but also the preclass assignment as well. What's in the video and why should I watch it?

    Important Notes:

    • If you wish to become a State Certified Residential Appraiser, Advanced Residential Applications and Case Studies/Part 1 is approved by the Appraiser Qualifications Board for 15 content hours in advanced residential applications and case studies. Advanced Residential Report Writing/Part 2 is approved for 30 hours in the appraisal subject matter elective category. Review the courses for which you have received credit to determine whether these courses are necessary for you to meet your education requirements.

    The 45-Hour Package is comprised of two courses:

    • Advanced Residential Applications & Case Studies/Part 1
    • Advanced Residential Report Writing/Part 2

    Following are the requirements to use the 45-Hour Package as an alternative to the Residential Demonstration Report:

    • You must register for a paired package of Part 1 and Part 2.
    • Part 1 and Part 2 of a paired package are generally scheduled 3 – 4 weeks apart.
    • It is not permissible to register or take Part 2 unless it is in the same pairing as Part 1
    • Course materials will be sent to you before class begins and will be accompanied by a memo explaining the preparations that you should make before coming to class. Be sure to register at least 2 weeks before the course starting date so that you can receive your materials in time to complete the required preparations. More details on the pre-class assignment can be found under View Details: Assignment.
    • For this course, case study solutions are not distributed at the end of class.
