With the elderly population growing rapidly, there is increasing demand for the appraisal profession to perform valuation and consulting services on existing and proposed independent living, assisted living memory care, and skilled nursing facilities.

The valuation issues that will be discussed are relevant to clients and appraisers alike who will gain a better understanding of the integral components of senior housing and long-term care properties.

  • What is being appraised - assets or the entire ownership entity?
  • Analyzing the competitive market:
    • Market saturation analysis
    • Identifying new competitive supply
    • Forecasting occupancy and payor mix with changing supply and demand
    • Absorption estimates
  • Issues in the development of the Cost Approach
    • Should the land value include the value or expense of costly entitlements?

  • Issues in developing the Sales Comparison Approach
    • Developing and confirming the sales
    • Value drivers and elements of comparison
    • Quantitative and qualitative analysis and sale price adjusting

    • Fractional interest issues with entrance fee properties
  • Allocation of value techniques
    • Cost approach and the treatment of soft costs
    • Income separation - do typical REIT lease coverage requirements reveal a market-accepted manner of allocation? Is the discontinued HUD proprietary earnings still relevant for allocation purposes?

    • Share your ideas on this hot topic

Property Taxation: Valuation and Consultation Services
Date:
July 30, 2013
Duration: 2 hours 

This webinar addresses how appraisers fit under the umbrella of the property tax services industry. From preparing appraisal and appraisal review reports to providing information in a clear, objective and competent manner, appraisers can provide tremendous assistance to both the public and private sectors.

Although appraisers often prepare appraisal and appraisal review reports in assessment appeal environments, appraisers can also routinely provide other valuation and valuation-related services. Remaining an objective professional in providing credible property tax services requires the appraiser to maintain clear communications with clients about the services provided and the appraiser’s role in providing them.

In this webinar, participants will:

  • Identify the role of the appraiser in providing property tax and related services while maintaining objectivity and competence
  • Recognize the services that appraiser can provide beyond preparing appraisal and appraisal review reports, including:
    • assisting taxpayers in ascertaining the correctness of their assessment records
    • assisting municipalities in distinguishing real from personal property and the taxable status of property
    • assisting in dispute resolution conferences when disagreements arise between property owner’s belief and assessor
  • Learn inherent nuances in preparing appraisal reports for property tax purposes versus other uses
  • Identify intended users and “loading” the overall capitalization rate for respective property tax burdens

Understanding TILA-RESPA for Real Estate Appraisers 
Date: September 24, 2015
Duration: 2 hours

This new webinar helps appraisers understand the major implementation issues with the new TILA/RESPA “Integrated Disclosures” Rule (TRID) relating to appraisal. Beginning in October, appraisals prepared for mortgage financing will be subject to a new “zero tolerance” framework, likely placing pressure on appraisers, banks and AMCs to quote more accurate fees on assignments. While the Final Rule allows for increase in fees based on “changed circumstances,” the full extent of what might actually qualify for a changed circumstance is not fully understood or has yet to be determined. Complicating the Rule’s implementation further are new consumer disclosure requirements relating to copies of appraisals, as well as existing requirements, such as the payment of customary and reasonable fees to appraisers.

At the end participants will:

  • Understand the essentials of the TRID Rule;
  • Gain an overview of two new forms relating to mortgage transactions;
  • Become familiar with lender requirements relating to consumer disclosures and quotation of fees by appraisers;
  • Understand the zero tolerance scheme, including when “changed circumstances” may be allowed;
  • Learn the policies behind CFPB decisions in the TRID rule; and
  • Hear how the new rule may impact the procurement of appraisals.

In 2018, the Appraisal Institute updated its sample appraisal engagement materials for non-litigation work to serve as a resource for appraisers drafting their own engagement agreements. Having been updated to incorporate key lessons from the last real estate downturn and changes in standards, the sample engagement materials::

  • Help appraisers portray an increased level of professionalism.
  • Create more enforceable payment options.
  • Provide leverage to appraisers in negotiating better terms of engagement.
  • Introduce several key provisions that most appraisers do not have in their present agreements.
  • Help appraisers reduce risk by including new provisions based on the latest caselaw concerning appraiser liability.

Duration: 2 hours

In this webinar, the authors of the new report, "Selling Into The Sun: Price Premium Analysis of a Multi-State Dataset of Solar Homes" will discuss the methodologies, data, results, and conclusions.

The study found that home buyers consistently have been willing to pay more for homes with host-owned solar photovoltaic (PV) systems - averaging about $4 per watt of PV installed - across various states, housing and PV markets, and home types. This equates to a premium of about $15,000 for a typical 3.6kW sized solar system.

The multi-institutional research team of scientists from Department of Energy National Laboratories, universities, and appraisers analyzed almost 22,000 sales of homes, almost 4,000 of which contained PV energy systems in eight states from 1999 to 2013—producing the most authoritative estimates to date of price premiums for U.S. homes with PV.

Regression has become a mainstream tool for valuation and consulting assignments.

In this webinar, you will:

  • How many independent variables are enough?
  • Is a bigger sample always better?
  • What is the meaning of the significance of a variable?
  • What is the impact of the variability of the dependent variable on the results?
  • What are the impacts of data errors and outliers on the results?
  • How can regression residuals be used to improve the model?
  • What should you do when there isn't a linear relationship between the dependent and independent variables?

    Golf Course Property Valuation
    Date: May 7, 2014
    Duration: 2 hours

    Golf is a never ending challenge to reduce your handicap, and so is appraising.

    The purpose of this webinar is to acquaint you with the caveats of golf course appraisal. For valuing golf courses, there is ample guiding experience in the industry, but each course has its own unique character. Condition varies widely and without the requisite knowledge of restoration costs, it is possible to have a wide variation in valuation. Rounds played in a golfing market depends greatly on competing courses, greens fees, and travel time for the widest market. Other compounding issues include restaurants or a destination location with an additional stay, and play attraction such as a casino or beach hotel. A solid base for the valuation process begins with appropriately reviewing comparables, rating green fees and projected rounds played, projecting expenses, understanding land valuation, and properly allocating depreciation.

    In this webinar, you will:

    • Understand the caveats of golf course appraisal
    • Identify unique characteristics, conditions and compounding issues involved in the valuation of a golf course
    • Evaluate distinguishing elements of quality and competition in order to substantiate support for the condition rating of your subject property
    • Present a better appraisal through the proper analysis and presentation of salient information

    One Step Further: Implementing Guide Note 12 - Analyzing Market Trends
    Date: December 18, 2014
    Duration: 2 hours

    The guide note suggests that, beyond a single point-in-time value opinion, the appropriate scope of work for an assignment may require an appraiser to provide an opinion regarding the sustainability of the value. In that way, the appraisal becomes a more valuable tool in boom and bust periods, or even in more typical market cycles.

    An appraiser with a solid understanding of real estate market cycles still can reasonably make predictions about the future direction of the market.

    This webinar incldes the following topics:

    • Market cycles and tools that appraisers can use to identify and report where in the cycle a market is on the valuation date.
    • Concepts including entrepreneurial incentive, frictional vacancy, feasibility rent, equilibrium rent affordability analysis, fundamental market analysis and capital market analysis.
    • Ways in which the tools can be used to add an additional dimension to appraisal work, without spending an inordinate amount of time.

      Impairment Testing: The When and How for Financial Reporting
      Date: April 25, 2012
      Duration: 2 hours

      In booming times, an executive opinion of fair value might be all that one needs. In recessionary times, a third party appraiser is more desirable, as valuation is no longer a rule of thumb solution. There are definitions of fair value per the financial accounting standards board, but the actual methods of determining impairment vary by the standards of different accounting sources. This webinar recording will define impairment and present its use with fair value accounting and the methods that one may apply for determining fair value, including discounted cash flows.

        Appraiser Liability: Using the AZ765 ANSI Measuring Standard

        Date: March 27, 2013
        Duration:2 hours

        Any appraiser who measures residential dwellings can benefit from learning about this reliable and accepted standard that should reduce common measuring errors.

        The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) recently collaborated with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) to develop a standard method for measuring single family residences. The Z765-2003 ANSI Standard should be a win-win for residential appraisers of every experience level. Using one standard can help reduce measuring errors caused by using different measuring methods and can also minimize litigation alleging measurement misrepresentations of the gross living area.

        Learn how some of your everyday practices could potentially lead to accidental measuring inaccuracies. Differing measurements abound in Gross Living Area figures in MLS listing forms and even among colleagues at the same appraisal firm.

        Date: November 18, 2015
        Duration: 2 hours

        Webinar Description:
        The appraisal of commercial and complex property in an historic area presents unique challenges to the appraiser. As with any appraisal, critical components to the process are the identification of relevant characteristics, data collection and analysis. The historic area appraisal includes these components – but with its own special spin.

        In this webinar, speakers discuss their experiences with appraisals of this type and present information that will help to make your next historic appraisal easier.

        Topics include:

        • Definitions and designations applicable specifically to historic properties
        • Comparable solutions – Where do you find a comparable for a 200-year-old antebellum Plantation, a 100-year-old post office or a 150-year-old office building?
        • Valuation approaches - Cost, sales comparison and income capitalization 
        • Resources

        The New Frontier: Marriage of Appraisal Review and Validation Stress Testing
        Date: January 18, 2019
        Duration: 2 hours

        The range of valuation needs within financial institutions is wide-ranging, especially for portfolio monitoring and loan renewals and modifications. Traditional single point in time valuation estimates – whether appraisals or evaluations – may not answer the most important questions asked by the customer (lenders/banks), limiting the usefulness of the services being performed. The U.S. real estate market is late in its cycle, with growing concerns about price pressure in commercial real estate. At the same time, recent guidance released by bank regulators confirms a potential limitless useful life for appraisals and evaluations already in file. This convergence of activity is likely to increase the demand for validations in the near and long term.

        In this webinar, you will understand:
          • Bank examiner expectations for the useful life of appraisals and evaluations and validation processes and procedures.
          • How valuation needs vary for financial institutions in portfolio monitoring and loan renewals.
          • Best practices for supporting CRE relational values. For example, is the property worth “at least” $xyz?
          • How to marry appraisal review procedures with relational value concepts to support validation processes.

          The Impacts of Tax Reform on Real Estate and Appraisal
          Date: December 18, 2017
          Duration: 2 hours

          When Congress makes changes to the U.S. tax law, it tends to significantly impact the real estate industry. Such is the case with the 115th Congress, which is considering a broad tax reform plan that includes changes to individual tax brackets and sizable changes to business tax arrangements. Proposed lower rates may result in more real estate investment in certain sectors, and any new plan will make tax planning more prominent and important in the coming years. For appraisers, some may actually benefit from the tax proposals from a business stand point, while other opportunities exist to offer value added services to tax planners.

          More homeowners, investors and tenants are turning their attention to building performance metrics: concrete, quantifiable ways to accurately measure and compare building performance across a wide range of characteristics. What started out in the green building world has now expanded to include conventional buildings of virtually every property type and size in nearly every corner of the country.

          Those who own and/or occupy all types of real estate are looking beyond the simple up front cost and return on investment metrics and asking:

          • How efficiently does my property use Energy, Water and Materials relative to its peers?
          • What are the operational risks of a property that lags its peers?
          • How healthy is this home for my family?
          • Can a better work space make my employees more productive?
          • Isn’t an energy-efficient home a better investment?

              Duration: 2 hours

              Description of webinar:

              Net Zero Energy (NZE) buildings – which use no more energy than they generate on site - have distinct design, construction and operating characteristics that extend beyond the obvious solar PV array. And since energy is the largest controllable operating expense in most buildings, the value implication is both obvious and material. Less obvious is how NZE buildings differ in design, construction and operation from conventional buildings, and how those differences affect the valuation process.

              This webinar will:

              • Present the basics of NZE buildings,
              • Demonstrate how the unique design and features of these buildings affect value and,
              • Investigate the specifics of cost and value impacts through the use of case studies drawn from the presenter's own work.

              Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are leading agencies in the nation’s housing finance system, and as such, they continually undertake efforts to improve risk management activities, including in real estate appraisal. Recently, we have seen the agencies turn to appraisal information in developing quality assurance systems relating to collateral risk. These systems are now fully operational and fully integrated with mortgage loan seller operations. The agencies recently announced plans to waive appraisals in certain low risk loan situations, yet appraisals are still very much a part of the agencies’ plans moving forward.

              The workshop will help professional appraisers understand the short and long term goals of the agencies relative to appraisals. Participants will hear the latest findings of quality assurance programs and better understand how appraisers can improve their performance. The agencies will also outline their respective appraisal waiver policies and help appraisers understand what steps they can take to continue providing value added services to end users and investors.

              Attendees will acquire basic knowledge of flood zones and base flood elevations, and how they impact real estate in coastal areas. Particular emphasis will be on the 50% FEMA rule, also known as the substantial damage rule. The 50% rule is the specific damage assessment guideline established by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and is widely used by coastal communities which participate in the Community Rating System (CRS) of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

              This webinar help appraisers to correctly establish the depreciated market value of the improvements. Brokers will learn the responsibility they have to advise their clients properly before making purchase decisions. Construction professionals can use the information when planning to renovate or make additions. Lenders will find the content valuable for making building finance decisions.

              Some of the specific questions that will be addressed are:

              • What are flood zones and base flood elevations? How does the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and the Community Rating System (CRS) operate?
              •  What is the 50% FEMA Rule and what are its components? What can and cannot be included in a valuation under this rule? What are some valuation examples of the rule?

              Duration: 2 hours

              Whether you call it fracking, frac'ing, or something else, advances in petroleum exploration & production technology including hydraulic fracturing have awakened the potential of mineral interests that have been dormant for decades or centuries. The unlocking of this wealth has now made minerals a major economic issue where they were once an ignored afterthought.

              Have you ever asked any of the following questions? If so, this webinar is for you!

              "I'm a licensed real estate appraiser, not a geologist: What is my role in the valuation of mineral rights?"

              "I'm a geologist, not a licensed appraiser: What is my role in the valuation of mineral rights?"

              "What is the relationship between the work of the reservoir estimator and the real estate appraiser?"

              "Does fee simple include mineral rights? What are my professional responsibilities with respect to mineral rights? What are my risks? What do I do about mineral rights? How do I find out about mineral rights?"

              Appraising airports and airplane hangars can be challenging and quite complex, however, airport properties require the same appraisal process as any other property.

FAA regulatory processes along with unique appraisal issues at airport properties should be taken into consideration as well.

              You will hear from experienced appraisers in the aviation field. The program will focus on the reasons for airport property appraisal and consulting, FAA regulations, various methods for valuation, unique appraisal issues at airport properties, and case studies.

              • Multiple Reasons for Valuing Airport Properties.
              • Unique Appraisal Issues at Airport Properties.
