Valuation Overview of Accessory Dwelling Units

Description

NEW SEMINAR!  
 

Many markets are reporting a housing shortage particularly in the affordable housing sector.  As a result, municipalities are updating their zoning laws to allow one or more accessory dwelling units (ADUs) to be added to single-unit housing. If you are an appraiser involved in residential valuation where ADUs are part of this growing trend, this seminar is for you. It provides an overview on ADUs focusing on the description, legal concerns, valuation methods, and techniques needed to value them. You’ll learn about the valuation challenges and discover how the recent changes in the secondary mortgage market selling guidelines now provide more guidance and flexibility in valuing and financing ADUs. This seminar will help you complete appraisal assignments with ADUs competently. 

Check out this preview as Sandy Adomatis, the seminar developer, and Dawn Molitor-Gennrich, one of the seminar reviewers, provide more information about this program!
