"Virtual" Seminar: Federal and California Statutory and Regulatory Laws (4-Hours)
Oct
21
Location: It's Virtual! Learn from Where it is Convenient and Comfortable for You

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.

This offering is being sponsored by the Sacramento-Sierra Chapter.  For questions contact the Sacramento-Sierra Chapter directly via email or at 916-972-9700.

"Virtual" Course: Business Practices and Ethics
Nov

Location: It's Virtual! Learn from Where it is Convenient and Comfortable for You

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

Business Practices and Ethics is an important course that provides information about standards and ethics requirements for valuers in general and, more specifically, for valuers who belong to the Appraisal Institute. Through discussion questions and examples, the class compares behavior and actions that illustrate violations of the Code of Professional Ethics, and participants learn how referrals can be made. Participants are also introduced to the Appraisal Institute Guide Notes to the Standards of Professional Practice and use these Guide Notes to resolve everyday appraisal practice problems. At the end of the course, they learn about common errors in appraisal reports and review reports, and they respond to questions about challenges that arise in appraisal practice such as requests for updates and requests to change or add intended users. These are common business practice issues that appraisers encounter in various assignments, including mortgage lending, litigation, and property tax appeal. Other real-life scenarios in the course illustrate less common business practice issues such as an appraiser’s obligation when illegal or criminal behavior is observed.

This offering is being sponsored by the Sacramento-Sierra Chapter.  For questions contact the Sacramento-Sierra Chapter directly via email or at 916-972-9700.

"Virtual" Seminar: Extreme Appraising - Valuing CRE in a Down Market
Nov

Location: It's Virtual! Learn Where it is Convenient and Comfortable

Instructor and Developer: Gary DeWeese, MAI

"Gary's analysis comes from the real world.  His examples are grounded in reality."                                                                                                                                     - August 2020 Attendee

" . . . depth of analysis is a breath of fresh air to the usual mundane CE choices available."
               - May 2021 Attendee

Given the possibility of declines in the value of CRE as a result of COVID-19, this 7-hour seminar will address critical issues, often misunderstood even by experienced commercial appraisers, in valuing property in a declining market.  It is based on a hypothetical case study property, a multi-tenant office building. The primary focus of the case study is to value the property “as is” and “when stabilized”, using all three valuation approaches.

  • Overview of the Case Study
  • Purpose and Summary of the Market Analysis
  • Addressing Above-Market Lease with a Property Rights Adjustment
  • Valuing the Property "As Is" Taking Into Account the Rent Up Adjustment and External Obsolescence
  • Measuring Effective Rent for a Lease with Concessions
  • Valuing the Property “When Stabilized” Taking into Account “External Obsolescence”
  • Reconciliation and Wrap-up

Chapter Workshop, Business Meeting and Networking Social - "Arbitration: Expanding Your Appraisal Practice"
Nov
18
Location: It's Virtual! Learn Where it is Convenient and Comfortable

A 3-hour virtual chapter-developed workshop prior to our November Chapter Meeting and Networking Social. 

Most appraisers are familiar with the concept of arbitration. It’s an alternative to litigation for parties with a dispute to resolve the matter by agreeing that an arbitrator or panel of arbitrators will make the determination. Arbitration work for appraisers – either as an arbitrator or as an expert witness – is growing and can present interesting assignments.  

Our presenters will offer a survey of the most common arbitration assignments involving appraisers. They will then shed light on some of the common issues and problems that appraisers may face – or cause – in arbitration. Their examples will be based on real-world arbitration cases; several of which will show that all appraisers interested in arbitration work – regardless of their experience – should be familiar with the processes, rules and standards that apply to appraisers serving as arbitrators or working as experts in arbitration.

  • Introduction to Arbitration: What is Arbitration?  
  • General Arbitration Rules and Key Provisions in California Arbitration Act
  • Potential Roles of Appraisers in Arbitration:  Arbitration for Both Commercial and Residential Appraisers
  • Common Types of Arbitration Handled by Appraisers
  • Arbitration Details: Serving as an Arbitrator
  • Three of the Most Common Mistakes by Appraisers Serving as Arbitrators
  • How to Get Started

Presenters include:
Paula K. Konikoff, JD, MAI, AI-GRS - Sole Practitioner in Arbitration and Litigation
Peter Christensen, Attorney, Christensen Law Firm

Following the 2-hour workshop (3-5pm Pacific Time) we will hold a brief virtual chapter meeting beginning at 5pm to catch up on Local, Regional and National issues and provide an opportunity for attendees to network with peers, colleagues, and perhaps even potential clients!
