Overview of Real Estate Appraisal Principles
This seminar is aimed at the non-appraiser; people who have an interest in appraising but are not technically qualified or licensed to act as appraisers. Examples are students, career changers, para-appraisers, researchers, appraisal assistants, introductory level field appraisers, users of appraisals, underwriters, lenders, relocation specialists and real estate brokers and salespersons. This seminar introduces the basic economic concepts that form the building blocks of current valuation theory. These principles will be related to the actual process of appraising residential and commercial properties. Note that this seminar is not intended to be a course to become a qualified appraiser. That process begins in the two Appraisal Institute courses Basic Appraisal Principles and Basic Appraisal Procedures. This seminar is an excellent introduction to those courses; the focus, however, is on an understanding of what an appraisal is and how it works, not how to do one.
