Course: Advanced Market Analysis and Highest & Best Use
Feb
4 - 8
Location: Lafayette Library and Learning Center, Lafayette

Instructor(s): Gary DeWeese, MAI

The 35-hour Advanced Market Analysis and Highest & Best Use course implements a blended learning approach, which includes a pre-class, two-hour online session 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.

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.
