Valuing Rural America

Target audience: Appraisers

Come and explore new concepts in this urban versus rural appraisal environment. Issues arise when sales are utilized to value a property rather than comparable sales and long standing land mix analysis. A genesis of the land mix methodology will be presented and new concepts regarding land mix will be introduced and thoroughly explained and demonstrations of new processes will be applied to various property types. This session also provides an overview of the new educational and practical textbook, produced by the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers.
