Course Summary

The Anatomy of an Appraisal

It seems like everyone who looks at an appraisal report want to find errors, fault or even fraud - or minimally, they just want to understand what is in the report. In this class, we examine the requirements of USPAP for preparing a report which has "credible resutlts." We will review what appraisers must do to abide with USPAP, what other layers of reuqirements are created by their clients and how to review an appraisal report to detemrin whether the report is "Credicle" or not. We will cover typical red glags, such as missing data, overuse of boilerplat, inconsistency of data and unsubstantiaed adjustments.

I sat through this class and stared at my peers wondering if I was the only one that felt like this had very little directed at my position as an agent. On a break I confirmed with several others that I wasn’t alone in my feelings. This was a waste of time and money.
