The federal government is printing money and giving it away. Will it affect the real estate market? Now, in 2009, real estate markets are distressed in various parts of the country and there are clear signs that is has spread across the entire country and is affecting all property types. Real estate appraisers must understand the changes that are taking place in the leading indicators and analyze the factors that will affect property values correctly, including the deleveraging of America. Valuation is more difficult for all practitioners in the current market. Clients are demanding more information and support for the real estate professional’s valuation conclusions under these circumstances. This seminar is designed to help real estate professionals to gain a perspective on the changes that have occurred during the last year that have affected the valuation of real estate. Basic real estate issues are discussed along with detailed considerations in an attempt to satisfy both seasoned and entry-level real estate analysts and investors. All real estate analysts experienced or otherwise, can benefit from the enhanced awareness of the changes that have taken place in the last year and what trends to watch that are required to appropriately analyze residential and commercial real estate in distressed or troubled markets and properly prepare supportable and defensible opinions of value.

  2. Great seminar and instructor. Its so nice to come out of a seminar and feel like I learned something that I can use rather than rehashing the same old “stuff”.

    Hi Jim, I sat in the front row to your left, beard, bald, but good looking! (Kidding!). I just wanted you to know that I enjoyed your seminar tremendously, I’d take it again tomorrow! It was very informative and I left knowing I got my money’s worth on this Institute seminar. Appraisal Insitute seminars are so much better and elevated above other organizations courses that I’ve taken. I’m an SRA member and have a great deal of pride in that certificate. Thanks again for the good work and giving me new insights in my daily appraisal practice.
