Complex Valuation is a new seminar developed to give appraisers the skills to value both detrimental and beneficial conditions. The field of “complex valuation” involves the real estate characteristics that are “atypical.” (Federal Regulations Part 34.42.).

Many, if not most, valuation assignments involve a straightforward application of the cost, income and sales comparison approaches to value. However, frequently complex issues arise that involve either beneficial or detrimental conditions that can influence the value of real estate. For example, beneficial conditions might result in an increase in value, such as discovering minerals or oil on grazing land. Detrimental conditions could result in a diminution in value, such as natural disasters or environmental contamination.

As real estate appraisers, understanding these complexities helps in developing a credible opinion of value in these types of assignments. Although many complex issues are addressed throughout appraisal literature and coursework, they are not presented as a single framework. The purpose of the Complex Valuation course is to provide real estate appraisers with a comprehensive understanding of the topic and focus on these various property conditions and the valuation methodologies to address them. 

Attendees Will Learn About:

  • Complex Valuation
  • Baseline Valuation
  • Detrimental Condition vs Beneficial Condition
  • Complex Valuation Model
  • Real Estate Valuation Methodologies
  • Applied Case Studies
