Education / Events

The Northern California Chapter is open for business! Our Chapter is comprised of appraisal professionals you know and trust. Education is the core service we provide, and we're in the process of adapting our education to virtual programs to meet Stay in Place (SIP) requirements.

We look forward to and will continue to provide the “live” high-quality education that the appraisal community has depended upon for nearly 100 years once these regulations are lifted and it is safe for everyone to gather in person again.

  • Dates, locations & instructors are subject to change.
  • Interested attendees are encouraged to register early as we reserve the right to cancel any program due to low attendance.
  • For information on the new AQB (Appraiser Qualifications Board) Requirements that went into effect on January 1, 2008 visit www.appraisalfoundation.org.

"Virtual" Seminar: Federal and California Statutory and Regulatory Laws (4-Hours)
Jun
23
Location: It's Virtual! Learn Where it is Convenient and Comfortable

Mandatory Requirement for Initial State Licensing / Certification (QE) and Renewal (CE)
Includes the required open-book exam.

Developer & Instructor(s): Dawn Molitor-Gennrich, SRA, AI-RRS

Appraisers recognize that they have regulatory obligations but understanding which ones apply when doing federally related and real estate related lender work is challenging. A review of sanctions and disciplinary actions taken against appraisers by the Bureau of Real Estate Appraisers makes it clear that many details and nuances of the appraiser laws and regulations are being misunderstood. Common, unintentional errors impact both the reputations of individual appraisers as well as confidence in the competency and ethics of the appraisal profession. This seminar is designed to help you recognize and understand the laws and regulations most important to appraisers practicing in California.

"Virtual" Seminar: Advanced Land Valuation: Sound Solutions to Perplexing Problems
Jun
25
Location: It's Virtual! Learn Where it is Convenient and Comfortable

Developer and Instructor: Gary DeWeese, MAI

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.

  • Utilize a land residual technique based on a DCF analysis to value land intended for two alternative competing uses (“for rental” apartments versus “for-sale” condos)

  • 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 rent using a non-traditional 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 land owner

  • Determine land value when its value is a function of a curvilinear relationship – in this case determining the value of land suitable for apartment development as a function of density (allowable units per acre)
