Seminar Descriptions:

This course discusses how to determine whether forestry is the highest and best use of a rural property, and explains how foresters and appraisers may need to work together to complete an assignment competently. Students will learn how to value and differentitate various forms of standing timber; use all three appraisal approaches for timber valuation, with a special focus on the income approach; extract a market discount rate from comparable transactions; and apply concept through practical case studies.

CE credit: 8 hours

Instructor: Ashley Miller, MAI, RF

This seminar will address issues related to the completion of agricultural appraisals using techniques deemed “best practices." The seminar will help the appraiser to consistently exceed the expectations of intended users and the standards and practices of their peers for similar assignments. ‘Best Practices’ is intended to reinforce the need to continually question the use of existing techniques and methodology, promote innovation, and improve the quality of appraisals being completed by rural appraisers. Users of farm appraisal reports will benefit from more thorough, readable reports and reliable, well supported valuations. Those taking the seminar will benefit from increased confidence and perceived value in appraisal results and improved reputation for quality and professionalism.
