Administrative Review of Appraisals

Target audience: Professionals who are not appraisers but who deal with appraisals.

This 2-day seminar provides users of appraisal services – attorneys, lenders, accountants, regulators and estate planners – an understanding of a report’s acceptability and conformity to institutional, regulatory and agency requirements. The seminar prepares the reviewer with the ability to recognize the strengths and weaknesses of the information that assist in making sound business decisions including: buy/sell scenarios, establishment of book value and collateral evaluation in underwriting. The student uses actual appraisal report case studies, ranging from residential reports, farm reports and narrative reports. This is an entry-level course, not for the practicing appraiser, directed toward bank examiners, regulators, loan and credit underwriters, accountants, lawyers, agency administrative reviewers, and corporate decision makers.

Contact Hours: 16 hours
