Appraisal reports convey opinions and conclusions that are to be based on credible market support.  However, the reality is that this does not always occur.  USPAP requires the appraisal to have market support, sound reasoning and logic for adjustments in a comparison analysis, all components in a cost analysis and the multiple aspects of an income analysis.  This program will address the need for meaningful market analysis for properties that commonly transact and are located in relatively stable markets, using industry approved and peer tested techniques within the Six Step process.

We will focus on how this can be accomplished in an inferred market study. Market analysis precedes and is the underpinning of the highest and best use analysis and conclusion.  Many valuation reports convey opinions but often lack the underlying data and analysis to support the opinions and conclusions expressed in the report.  The underlying market data and its analysis is often poorly communicated due to clients requesting a quick turn-around time frame or the impact of other restrictions.

This program delves into all aspects of an Inferred market analysis which is the underpinning of a meaningful highest and best use analysis and conclusion.  Each step in the Six Step process will connect theory and practice to assist residential and non-residential practitioners in writing more complete and meaningful appraisals, regardless of the medium used to communicate the report.  The goal will be to offer pragmatic ways to comply with USPAP and allow clients and intended users to more fully understand all the work done by an appraiser.  The program is designed to show how USPAP and appraisal practice and theory can be presented in a succinct manner that will be meaningful to users while demonstrating the depth of research and analysis that trained and experienced appraisers bring to assignments.  The intent is to protect the general public and meet the obligation expected in this industry.
