    Course Description:

    The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) establishes a framework that appraisers use when developing an opinion of value. The valuation process is a systematic procedure an appraiser follows to provide answers to a client’s questions about real property value.1 It is a model that can be adapted to a wide variety of issues related to value, mass value, review, litigation support or consulting assignments. The goal of the valuation process is to deliver well-researched and supportable conclusions. The Critical Thinking & Junk Science course includes both principles and case studies for the appraisal professional. The three approaches to value (cost, income and sales comparison), coupled with complex issues set forth in USPAP AO-9 (cost, use and risk effects) established a solid valuation framework.
