This course was created to provide a broad review of basic techniques and procedures for deriving market adjustments and extracting them from available market data. The course examines the wealth of data in the public records system and explores multi-variable regression analyses (sometimes called automated valuation models), the MLS, as well as the appraiser’s own files. Specifically, this course identifies ways in which time adjustments, size adjustments and amenity adjustments can be extracted and measured from market data. This is in keeping with USPAP and FannieMae Selling Guide requirements for adjustments.
The goal is to demonstrate to the appraiser not only the need to make proper adjustments when those are necessary, but to have market-derived support for those adjustments, and then to maintain that support in the workfile, as both USPAP and Fannie Mae require.
