Rural Sales Analysis and Confirmation

Target audience: Appraisers

The development of a reliable market database includes the discovery, confirmation, analysis and archiving of real estate sales. The objective of this seminar is to focus primarily on the confirmation process. The class participant’s past experience in these four steps is likely varied, but complete sales analysis is not possible without in-depth sales confirmation. Analysis of the market data collected, for use in yield capitalization, and estimating accrued depreciation is a secondary focus.
