Rapid Response: Market Analysis in Volatile       Markets for Lenders



Lenders and appraisers have found market conditions can change greatly given dramatic circumstances.  Appraisers have the responsibility to account for market conditions on the effective date of value. This timely and beneficial seminar will remind lenders that while market conditions are usually stable, they can change rapidly and that will impact the risk associated with a mortgage loan. This valuable, lender-focused program will review basic concepts and techniques used in performing market analysis in residential property appraisals and explain the difference between neighborhood analysis and market analysis.


  • Discuss common problems, inconsistencies, and misunderstandings in appraisal reports.

  • Illustrate how appraisers extract, compile, analyze, and present the data in a way that lenders can understand it.

  • Introduce concepts to help lenders differentiate between a neighborhood and a market.

  • Demonstrate statistical tools residential appraisers use to support the appraiser’s opinion of market supply and demand and to support the highest and best use conclusion.

  • Familiarize lenders with local, statewide, regional, and national databases that are used in analyzing supply and demand.
