Aug

"I learned things I didn't even know I didn't know, such as the potentially significant differences between a legal parcel and an assessor-designated parcel."

While California’s Subdivision Map Act provides a legal framework, it’s not so simple to navigate the SMA’s complexities.  This presentation will inform attendees’ understanding of significant considerations pertaining to legal parcels, which are a critically important element in real property appraisals and Market Value.  

In this 3-hour virtual workshop, as an appraiser, Lefmann who brings more than 4 decades of experience in land valuation will offer an engaging review of all you need to know about legal parcels, legal subdivisions, legal descriptions, and related issues.

  • History of Land Ownership in the U.S. and California
  • What is PLSS?  Lot & Block? Metes and Bounds?
  • Tract Map vs. Parcel Map vs. Record of Survey
  • The difference between and Assessor's Parcels and Legal Parcels
  • Significant elements of California's Subdivision Map Act
  • About legal non-conforming parcels and merger provisions
  • Units of lengths (rods, chains, links, varas)
  • How to read legal descriptions
  • How curves are legally described
  • How to draw a legal description

"Virtual Workshop" Central California Branch Chapter presents "IRS, Loss, Gift & Estate Valuations"
Sep

Location: It's Virtual, Learn Where it is Most Convenient for You

IRS, Loss, Gift & Estate Valuations:  Changes in the Rules and How They Impact the Appraisal Process

The IRS has finalized rules for substantiating and reporting cash and noncash charitable deductions, stating that any tax deduction of more than $500,000 requires a qualified appraisal conducted in accordance with generally accepted appraisal standards. The rules took effect as of August 1, 2018 ~ but appraisers still have plenty of questions.

Taxpayers who suffer economic loss due to a natural disaster can claim a casualty loss deduction on their federal income tax return. However, there have been some recent changes to limit deductions, as will be discussed.  The same sort of principles may apply to litigation, if someone else caused the damage.  Come learn from experienced appraisers who will share with us a recent case study on casualty loss involving a large custom home, a washed out road, and a mudslide. You need to register for the workshop to see how the damages were calculated and how this story ends. 

Don’t miss this lively and informative 2-hour "virtual" workshop where we will explore new and upcoming changes to the IRS requirements, and how they might impact the appraisal community.

  • Estate Planning from the Transactional Side
  • The Three Types of Estates:  Non-taxable, Quasi (6-12 million net worth) and High-Income
  • Gift Valuations
  • Changes in Tax Codes that Might Impact the Valuation of Real Property
  • Increase in the Credit Amount and How that Impacts Estate Planning
  • The Addition of IRC Section 199A
  • The Adequate Disclosure Regulations
  • Other Relevant Changes in the Regulations

Panelists include
Charles H. Packer ("Chuck") - Estate and Trust Attorney, Hopkins & Carley
Norman C. Hulberg, MAI - Senior Managing Director, Valbridge Property Advisors - Northern California
Rebecca Frederick - Appraiser, Valbridge Property Advisors - Northern California

Seminar: Practical Highest & Best Use
Sep
10 - 11
Location: It's Virtual, Learn Where it is Most Convenient for You

This 7-hour offering was such a hit in 2019, we are bringing it back in 2020!  If you missed it last year, here is your second chance.  And not only are we bringing it back - but we are bringing it to you VIRTUALLY! 

This presentation will be split into (2) 3.5 hour morning (PDT) segments on consecutive days.

Developer and Instructor: John Urubek, MAI

A review appraiser, employed by a state-regulatory agency, commented in a USPAP class that highest and best use is the most deficient section in many appraisal reports.  Whenever a market value opinion is developed, USPAP S.R. 2-2(a) requires the report to "summarize the support and rationale" for the highest and best use conclusion. 

This seminar is intended to enhance USPAP compliance for both residential and commercial appraisers.   

Learning Objectives

  • Reviews many basic concepts of H&B use
  • Defines key terms like “support” and “reasonably probable”.
  • Clarifies the four test of H&B use.
  • Identifies the four components of a proper H&B use conclusion
  • Differentiates the four tests from the four conclusions
  • Identifies the five (5) most likely buyer types
  • Explores and develops supportable conclusions for nine atypical, real-world situations where H&B use was initially uncertain
  • Details practical procedures to help appraisers develop a proper H&B use conclusion for both typical and very atypical appraisal problems.

Registrants will receive a well-organized handbook that is a replica of the PowerPoint is provided.  This 80+ page handbook will lessen in-class writing and assist the appraiser back at the office.  

A Special Note About Registering:

  • Never attended an Appraisal Institute Offering or not yet updated your password / log-in since October 1, 2019 - follow these simple steps before registering. 

  • Those seeking credit from states outside of California are strongly encouraged to check with their state licensing board(s) to confirm that the specific state(s) will accept virtual / online education from an out-of-state provider.

Seminar: Stats, Graphs and Data Science - Part I
Oct
26 - 28
Location: Executive Inn and Suites Bayside Hotel (near Oakland International), Oakland

Seminar Developer & Instructor: George Dell, MAI, SRA, ASA, CRE

This hands-on workshop introduces and exploits “big data” tools, computation, and predictive methods for valuation.  It emphasizes applied solution-based learning, using real data, for objective evidence-based results.  Data science results are simpler, more useful, and intuitively sensible.

The intent of this seminar is that students leave with these immediately useful skills:

  1. Apply visual methods to structure assignments and define competitive market segments.
  2. Classify and technically quantify comparable data selection.
  3. Adjust and interpolate, using contrasting and simple regression calculations.
  4. Explain practical differences in calculated, estimated, and biased estimators.
  5. Hear and learn of the complexities, pitfalls, hype, and flim-flam around multiple regression.
  6. See the potential of real data analysis software, such as open-source R and RStudio.

Open-source analytics software is provided, as well as example data sets and templates for use in form and narrative reporting.  The use of these tools is particularly useful for sparse-data appraisal problems through the support of location (spatial), and price indexing (time) adjustments.  Local commercial and/or residential data sets are used in presented examples

This course is prerequisite to intermediate and advanced courses offered by Valuemetrics.info education, leading to auditable valuation practices.

Note: This offering is created and administered by George Dell.  Additional registration information or questions should be directed to valuemetrics.info or 619/297-6816.

Seminar: Stats, Graphs and Data Science - Part 2
Oct
28 - 30
Location: Executive Inn and Suites Bayside Hotel (near Oakland International), Oakland

Seminar Developer & Instructor: George Dell, MAI, SRA, ASA, CRE

SGDS2 continues of the foundations of SGDS1.  Building on the SGDS1 learning in depth, breadth, and detail.  We continue examination of the theory, concepts, and practice of data science as applied to asset analytics.  The learning follows the development sequence of valuation and risk analytics.  Starting from the problem identification (scope of work) in measurable terms, we proceed to:

  • Identify the overall project data frame;
  • Define the CMS© (Competitive Market Segment), the ideal data set;
  • Resolve the bias-variance tradeoff to optimize accuracy and precision of results;
  • Perform necessary data wrangling(analogical to traditional confirmation/verification)
    • Portray data visually
    • Reduce to the CMS©
    • Detect quantify missing/needed predictor variables
    • Create new calculated fields
    • Transform functional relationships (e.g., linear to logarithmic)
    • Create Transformed data levels
    • Identify and handle outliers
    • Recognize needed predictive confirmation/verification

This class is substantially experienced in R, RStudio, and R packages, including ggplot2 and tidyverse.  A comparison and integration of Excel® is provided for workflow efficiency.  Methods of transition from canned appraisal software and the spreadsheet— to a real analytics package is reviewed.

Specific analytics include non-linear price indexing, seam regression, introduction to GIS in R, Data selection algorithms (particularly hierarchical cluster analysis), sources of help for R.  Also resolution of conflicts in USPAP, AI-SVP, IVS, and EBV© (Evidence Based Valuation) practice, and reporting in a data-stream delivery through dashboard views.

General Demonstration Report-Capstone Program
Nov
16 - 22
Location: Irvine

The General Demonstration Report—Capstone Program is an option Candidates for Designation may choose to complete their demonstration of knowledge requirement for their MAI designation. Like the traditional requirement, the program calls for the skills and knowledge base necessary to produce a complete demonstration appraisal report. However, this program offers an option that accelerates the completion of the report. Instead of selecting and compiling data on a property, participants are provided with a subject property and data to analyze and then write the report in a limited time span of approximately 2 months. Participants must attend two webinars and a 6.5-day classroom session where facilitators will be on hand to answer questions and offer guidance. The full report must be submitted for grading no later than noon on the seventh day.

The program is designed to be completed in approximately 2 months; therefore, participants must realize they will need to commit a considerable amount of that time to analysis and writing tasks PRIOR to the classroom setting. One pre-class writing assignment (fundamental market analysis) is required before the second webinar. Participants will need to spend a minimum of 200–250 hours to complete this program successfully. And during the classroom session, participants should expect to work on their reports after the 7-hour days spent in the classroom—10 to 12 hours a day that week will not be unusual. 

Don't Delay - Register Today!  This offering will sell-out.

"Virtual" Seminar: Federal and California Statutory and Regulatory Laws (4-Hours)
Dec
8
Location: It's Virtual, Learn Where it is Most Convenient 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.
