Course Description:

The program reviews the underlying risk factors that impact all real estate and the role of equity when acquiring and owning real property. Appraisal assignments generally seek to value the whole property as of an effective date and practitioners use the methods and techniques taught academically and gained while on-the-job. This program will review factors that contribute to many factors including but not limited to overall and yield rates. It views investments from both the lender and equity investors positions.


While the various types of risk will be discussed, tools used by lenders will also be reviewed. Salient issues such as loan-to-value ratios, breakeven analysis, sensitivity need to be addressed when valuing income producing property. While most of the program will be relevant for the general practitioner, many risk issues are confronted by residentially valuers.


This short program will also focus on the role equity plays when evaluating the real property rights. The program looks at the appraiser’s responsibilities as its pertains to the role of equity under USPAP, Interagency Guidelines, and similar documents such as Florida Statutes Title XXXII Regulation of Professions and Occupations which are used to evaluate the reasonableness of an appraisal service.


Objectives and Audience:

This program will address risk and the importance of equity when analyzing a property’s market value. The issue of risk, regardless of the type of property, should be addressed early in an appraisal. Its ground work should be addressed in market analysis and emphasized in each approach developed. Under the principle of change, consideration of risk is essential.


The program’s audience is expected to consist of field and review appraisers who perform residential and general appraisal assignments as well lenders and other parties seeking appraisal services. The program is flexibly designed to meet the needs of attendees. The goal is better understanding of nuances that impact property value and the corresponding equity position.
