Appraising Agricultural Land in Transition

This course is a Highest and Best Use driven discussion exploring the multitude
of influences on rural properties and how those influences could affect the use of
a property, target market, and marketability of a property. Traditionally
agricultural or rural properties have been considered in transition when they are
moving away from traditional open space or rural uses entirely to a higher density
urban use such as residential or commercial. However, these are not the only
instances when a property could or should be considered in transition. The intent
of this course is to explore the variety of ways or instances when a property could
be transitioning. It’s meant to be an open discussion building on the experiences
of the participants and presenting new ways to view changes or transitions. It
also presents some methodologies to better determine or establish the true
Highest and Best Use of real property.
