Mandatory Requirement for Initial State Licensing / Certification (QE) and Renewal (CE)
Includes the required one-hour multiple choice open-book exam is given onsite following the seminar presentation.

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.

Course: Review Case Studies - Residential
Jun
 

Review Case Studies-Residential is unlike anything you’ve experienced in other review courses. In this two-day course, you will apply the review process that you learned in Review Theory-Residential by walking through a case study that focuses on a two-stage review assignment. Day one begins with a quick refresher of review concepts. From there, you will work on an assignment that gets dropped on your desk much like it does in real life. Working in groups, as well as individually, you’ll identify and analyze the components of the case study review assignment.

For many, this will be the first opportunity to work through all seven steps of the review process and apply them within a simulated, very real-to-life assignment. Problem identification and scope of work is where the process begins and that quickly leads to the tougher analytical work where you’ll analyze the subject appraisal report and develop opinions of completeness, accuracy, adequacy, relevance, and reasonableness (including tests of reasonableness). From there, you’ll learn to develop opinions of appropriateness and creditability to both the appraiser’s development work as well as opinions on whether the appraiser’s report is appropriate and not misleading—including the reviewer’s development of reasons for disagreement.

Day two begins with the reviewer’s development of his or own opinion of value in this two-stage review assignment. You will analyze additional field data to facilitate review decisions whether the opinion of value in the subject appraisal report is credible. From the start of the case study, you will take notes to prepare an individual review report which is submitted to the instructor (the review supervisor) before the exam.

If you’re an appraiser, reviewer, or other real estate professional who regularly works with reviews, this hands-on, application-based course is for you!
