Education / Events

The Northern California Chapter is open for business! Our Chapter is comprised of appraisal professionals you know and trust. Education is the core service we provide, and we're in the process of adapting our education to virtual programs to meet Stay in Place (SIP) requirements.

We look forward to and will continue to provide the “live” high-quality education that the appraisal community has depended upon for nearly 100 years once these regulations are lifted and it is safe for everyone to gather in person again.

  • Dates, locations & instructors are subject to change.
  • Interested attendees are encouraged to register early as we reserve the right to cancel any program due to low attendance.
  • For information on the new AQB (Appraiser Qualifications Board) Requirements that went into effect on January 1, 2008 visit www.appraisalfoundation.org.

"Virtual" Seminar: Evaluating Commercial Leases: The Tenant and the Terms Both Matter
Apr
16
Location: It's Virtual! Learn Where it is Convenient and Comfortable

Instructor: Gary DeWeese, MAI

This 7-hour seminar introduces participants to how the terms of a lease and the risk profile of the tenant influence the valuation of commercial real estate. Participants will see how the business features of commercial leases affect the quantity and the duration of the income stream that a property will generate and the development of the property’s income statement. Non-traditional sources of income, the proper period to use in measuring the income, measuring the real vacancy rate, expenses that might not be recoverable by a landlord if a CAM formula is incorrect, and how other special clauses in a lease can all affect the property’s income stream will be examined. The second part of the seminar discusses tenant credit risk issues and explains why understanding a tenant’s financial strength is key to assessing the quality of the income stream.
