Course: Real Estate Finance, Statistics and Valuation Modeling
Apr
26 - 27
Location: Lafayette Library & Learning Center, Lafayette

Instructor: Dawn Molitor-Gennrich, SRA, AI-RRS

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 on values and 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 Appraiser Qualifications Board as part of qualifying (i.e., prelicensing) education for both residential and general certified appraisers.

Course: General Appraiser Market Analysis and Highest & Best Use
May
1 - 4
Location: Lafayette Library & Learning Center, Lafayette

Instructor: Gary DeWeese, MAI

This AQB-approved course will help you apply meaningful market analysis in valuation assignments. It presents the basic concepts and terminology of market analysis and marketability studies, then shows how marketability studies provide vital information for the highest and best use decision. Throughout the course, the emphasis is on conducting a reliable analysis of demand. You’ll gain practice in applying methods for inferred, or trend, analysis to three property types—a suburban residential subdivision, an existing multifamily property, and an office building. Using the tools introduced in the course will help you increase the reliability of your highest and best use analyses and support the conclusions you reach in the three approaches to value.

The course also provides a transitional discussion to prepare you for marketability studies using fundamental demand analysis, which is covered in the Appraisal Institute’s Advanced Market Analysis and Highest & Best Use course.
