The Appraisal Update
The Appraisal Update is the official podcast of Appraiser eLearning. Join us every week to get an update, a single scenario, a point to ponder – something to consider for your appraisal practice today.
In this episode of The Appraisal Update, Bryan Reynolds chats with Jim Park the executive director of The Appraisal Subcommittee (ASC). The ASC is the body that regulates appraisal requirements, appraisers, and – generally speaking – all things appraisal related. Join Bryan and Mr. Park as they discuss the state of the appraisal industry, where we are and where we’re going. This episode is a little longer than normal, but we thought the content was useful and important.
Bryan Reynolds chats about highest and best use and ways we might consider this foundational appraisal issue. How do you address issues of adaptive reuse? How do you deal with a property that’s unique? HABU isn’t always a foregone conclusion. Listen to Brian talk about the ways to consider this section of the appraisal, one of the most overlooked – yet most important parts of the process.
Take the time to build your toolbox with ways to make money. Don’t avoid jobs just because you have a notion that it’s outside of your normal appraisal practice. You can work as a consultant. We suggest you do when you get the opportunity.
Join us for this episode of The Appraisal Update and discover another tool for your money-making toolbox.
