Workshop, Chapter Business Meeting & Networking Social - California Rent Control - New Changes for Residential Income Analysis
Nov

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

About the Workshop:  California Rent Control - New Changes for Residential Income Analysis

Developer and Instructor: Denis DeSaix, MAI, SRA

In California, rent control has been a local jurisdiction issue, typically approved by a city’s or county’s voters.  Beginning in 2020, there will be a state-wide rent control ordinance that will cover all jurisdctions not currently affected by local rent control and can also impact those jurisdictions with existing rent control ordinances.  This is a significant change that has a direct impact on the evaluation and analysis of residential (one-unit and multi-unit) rental properties.   Denis DeSaix, MAI, SRA, will provide an overview of the new law and the potential impact it will have in appraising residential rental properties.  Points of discussion will include:

  • An overview of the new regulations
  • What’s exempt and what’s not
  • How a market with existing rent control can be affected
  • Valuing a rent-controlled property
  • Analyzing Physical Characteristics vs. Economic Characteristics
  • Understand the relationship between GRMs/Cap Rates and Market or Below Market Rents
  • 1-4 unit appraisal impact of rent control- it does matter!

Whether you are a commercial or residential appraiser, the new rent control laws will affect your appraisal analysis if the property is an apartment building, a 2-4 residential income property, and possibly a SFR or Condominium rental property.  Come join us for this informative presentatoin and be prepared as this new law takes effect.

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.

This offering is sponsored by the Appraisal Institute National headquarters.  For questions or more information contact education@appraisalinstitute.org or 312/335-4207.
