June Education Opportunities

Real Estate Finance Statistics & Valuation Modeling (REVISED)
June 18 - 19, 2012

Updated to Reflect Today's Economy!

This two-day course provides an introduction to statistics, real estate finance, and modeling with applications to residential and commercial real estate appraisal. On the first day, you will develop an understanding of basic statistics and statistical analysis and learn how those skills can be used in valuation and evaluation practice.

On day two, you will gain an introductory understanding of real estate finance markets, learn about credit conditions and their impact values on appraisal, and calculate and interpret fundamental numbers on loan payments and balances.

Successful completion of the course and exam should satisfy most states’ education requirements in the content area identified as real estate finance, statistics, and valuation modeling. Participants should understand that this course will be a review and will not address more advanced topics.

This course revision includes an update on financial history and the future implications of the burst housing bubble. A discussion on how mortgages impact value also was added, as well as measuring volatility and standard deviations.

Note: Real Estate Finance, Statistics, and Valuation Modeling was designed according to the broad topical guidelines of the Appraisal Qualification Board as part of qualifying (i.e., prelicensing) education for both residential and general certified appraisers.

Advanced Market Analysis and Highest & Best Use
June 18 - 22, 2012

The 35-hour Advanced Market Analysis and Highest & Best Use course implements a blended learning approach, which includes a pre-class, two-hour onlinesession combined with 30 hours of traditional classroom education and wraps up with a three-hour exam on the fifth morning.


Combining the analytical processes of market analysis, highest and best use, and income valuation, this course is intended for those who have taken and passed the General Appraiser Market Analysis and Highest & Best Use course and have a thorough understanding of the mathematical and financial principles necessary to perform appraisals of income-producing properties.

Building on the Level B marketability studies that were applied in General Appraiser Market Analysis and Highest & Best Use, you will perform Level C marketability studies using fundamental demand analysis and study several real estate markets in a fictional city.

The economic base of the community is explored, and it is used as the subject and example for both physical and economic forces that affect all communities and consequently all real estate.

The remainder of the course consists of four case studies (apartment and condominium conversion, retail, industrial, and land with potential for mixed-use development) that are intended to demonstrate both the power of fundamental market analysis and its application to highest and best use decisions.
