Rural Case Studies 1

Target audience: Appraisers

This 1-day seminar will provide an opportunity to apply the three approaches to value in diverse rural appraisal assignments. More specifically, appraisers will apply relevant appraisal principles and analytical techniques as they complete two case studies – one involving a rural commercial property and the other a permanent planting. This is a “hands on” seminar designed to allow students to share ideas, explore options, and sharpen their understanding of the integrated approaches as they develop value opinions in each assignment. Whether you are a practicing rural appraiser, or an experienced appraiser who wants to learn more about valuing rural or agricultural properties, this seminar should provide an opportunity to enhance your analytical skills.

Contact hours: 8 hours
