Who should enroll
  • General and residential certified appraisers

Description By examining unusual and complex land valuation assignments, this seminar takes concepts covered in the Appraisal Institute curriculum to the next level. In addition to lecture, discussion, and Q&A, sample case studies will demonstrate, primarily in Excel, conceptual and practical applications that participants will be able to incorporate into their day-to-day work. The seminar will suggest strategies for performing these assignments.
Objectives
  • Use a land residual technique based on a DCF analysis to value land intended for two alternative competing uses (“for rental” apartments versus “for-sale” condominiums).
  • Determine the highest and best use of land when the legally permissible, physically possible, and financially feasible use(s) are very uncertain and cannot be determined using traditional methodologies.
  • Determine land value when the value is a function of a curvilinear relationship with its appropriate unit of comparison (in this case, the value of land suitable for apartment development as a function of density).
  • Determine land rent using a nontraditional unit of comparison (in this case land rental value based on average traffic volume).
  • Estimate the value of land subject to a long-term ground lease with multiple forms of financial benefits accruing to the landowner.
Prerequisites
  • Familiarity with DCF concepts and general valuation approaches, specifically yield capitalization
  • Basic working knowledge of Excel helpful
