Course Summary

Determining Value Of Commercial Properties

Real estate licensees who represent commercial clients, whether as buyers or sellers of commercial properties, must understand the process of valuing commercial properties. To best serve their commercial real estate clients, they need a solid understanding of how commercial properties are valued, how appraisers work, and how that important final number is determined. Many of the tools and methodologies used by commercial appraisers can also be used by licensees to help their clients determine value when buying, selling or comparing commercial real estate. While a valuation prepared by a real estate licensee will never take the place of a formal appraisal, it is important for licensees to understand the definitions of value used by appraisers, the methodologies used, the three approaches to value, and how value of commercial properties is determined. It is also important for licensees to be able to read and extract information from a professional appraisal report. Course highlights include: · Definitions of commonly used commercial appraisal terms · An in-depth look at the process of data collection, analysis and three approaches to value (cost, income and sales comparison) for commercial property valuation · Faculty expert, Bill James, a 40-year veteran of commercial appraisal, takes students step-by-step through a real-life appraisal report, which includes the process of data collection, approaches to value, analysis and value determination · More than two dozen handouts used in a real-life commercial appraisal, with a detailed explanation of each

Everything was a 5-star except my take on it is that too much time was spent on "proving" the worth of a licensed appraiser and not as much time teaching a real estate agent to understand the appraisal so he/she can answer a client's questions.
