This course is specifically designed to meet the 30 hours required by the Appraiser Qualifications Board for Qualifying Education for General Certified Appraisers. The course covers topics such as underlying Cost Approach definitions and concepts. Extensive site or land valuation techniques are presented because of the importance of land in appraising rural properties. Comparable sales analysis includes determining the contributory value of land classes; paired sales techniques; derivation and the correct sequence of adjustments, and analysis of properties with multiple land types. Depreciation analysis covers age-life, modified economic age-life and market derived depreciation to include all forms of depreciation including physical, functional, and external obsolescence. These topics are discussed with relevance toward the unique aspects of rural property valuation. The concepts are reinforced through classroom discussion, drill problems and daily review exams.
