  • Instructor: Vince Dowling, MAI, SRA  

  • Check in begins at 8:15 AM

  • class starts at 8:30 AM  

NEW SEMINAR! Appraisals or reviews of the most experienced appraisers can have inconsistencies in data, analysis, and reporting. This fast-paced and thought-provoking seminar focuses on significant inconsistencies that can have a major impact on the credibility of the appraiser as well as the value opinion. It will bring to light inconsistencies that can affect any part of the appraisal process including the definition of market value, highest and best use, the three approaches, functional and external obsolescence, and reconciliation. Eye-opening discussions and practical problems (including ag problems) will keep you interested and engaged throughout the day. Objectives:

  • Recognize inconsistencies with the definition of market value and the need to stay consistent with the type of value opinion developed.
  • Understand how the highest and best use decision drives the remainder of the appraisal process and how to stay consistent with highest and best use.
  • Realize the need for consistency within and between the three approaches to value.
  • Determine what constitutes functional and external obsolescence and how to maintain consistency with both in all three approaches.
  • Complete a thorough, meaningful, and consistent reconciliation.

Opening Pandora’s Box: The New Wild West of Appraisal Modernization @ Via Zoom
Sep 15 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

 YOU MUST BE AMONG THE FIRST 100 TO REGISTER! Space is limited!

  • Check in begins at 2:45 PM
  • Class is 3-5 PM
  • 2 CE Hours 
  • Instructor & Seminar Developer: Mark R. Linne, MAI, SRA, AI-GRS 

This seminar will explore how technology, pandemics and GSE modernization efforts work in the aggregate to offer profound challenges to the valuation professional. Topics will be artificial intelligence, mobile technologies; machine learning, AVMs, the death of appraisal forms and how the existing landscape will experience a tectonic shift over the next 3 years. In addition to providing a perspective on the changes that are beginning to emerge, participants will hear a variety of opportunity paths that will allow them to make sense of the changing environment and what they can do to make the most of the opportunities emerging from this seeming chaos. A sample outline of the seminar discussion: 

Appraisal Modernization requires a discussion of: 

    • Artificial Intelligence (The “Other” AI) 
    • Machine Learning 
    • Automated Valuation Models (AVMs) 

Appraisal Modernization Includes: 

    • New Forms 
    • New Processes 
    • New Players (Inspections/Hybrids/AVMs) 
    • New Understanding of RISK

This class is being offered for FREE as a THANK YOU for supporting the VCCAI.

CE credits are pending with the VA state board.

Please be on time, and let lisamayweiss@hotmail.com know if you cannot attend since I anticipate having a wait list.
