Understanding and Using Comparable Transactions

Target audience: Appraisers

This seminar is designed to enhance the understanding and use of comparable properties. It does not address the use of comparables in every valuation situation that may exist. Many situations are beyond the scope of this presentation. If time permits the instructor will try to answer questions about specific methodology and techniques. If questions are not able to be answered, students are encouraged to pursue an appropriate course covering that aspect of valuation.
