    General Appraiser Site Valuation and Cost Approach

    This is a practical, hands-on course that concerns two basic aspects of real estate appraisal: land/site valuation and the development of the cost approach. Extensive use of problems and case studies will give you practice in applying site valuation and cost approach methods learned in previous courses. Special attention is given to the appraisal of various types of sites and the various means of measuring depreciation. Two in-depth case studies are presented. The first case study addresses the valuation of an industrial property and demonstrates the fundamentals of site valuation, estimation of current improvement cost, and various methods of recognizing and measuring depreciation. The second case study is a short one, featuring valuation of a residential subject site using the sales comparison approach, extraction, interview techniques, and information provided by professional cost data sources.
