Appraising in an Overheated Market 3.5 hours Appraisal & RE CE

This course will help both appraisers and agents navigate the challenges presented by this very overheated market, with extremely low inventory, and multiple offers above listing price. Our current market has created friction between appraisers, who must follow USPAP and lender guidelines, and can only use the comparable sales that exist, and agents, who are seeing multiple offers, all above list price. Agents are also using escalation clauses, as well as an appraisal contingency. Both groups must learn the other side’s role, as well as consider the inevitable change to this market, and what effect that will have on sellers who bought at the height of the market.

A Field Guide to American Houses 3.5 hours Appraisal & RE CE

This course will discuss the common architectural styles of homes throughout the US. You will learn to identify architectural styles and time periods. Many buyers and sellers don’t realize that history helps to sell their homes. Appraisers will explore the actual style and construction of American homes, beyond the “does it fit in the box?” descriptions for Fannie Mae and be able to clearly define the architectural styles and features of a house.
