  • Instructor: Rick Carlile, MAI, SRA (seminar developer)

NEW SEMINAR!!!  Sometimes inconsistency in data, analysis, and reporting escapes even the most seasoned appraiser. This can have a major impact on the credibility of the value opinion in the appraisal report and on your credibility as an appraiser. This seminar focuses on significant inconsistencies that can affect categories like the definition of market value, market analysis and highest and best use, the three approaches, functional and external obsolescence, and reconciliation. Broad discussions about the entire appraisal process, topics you may not have given much thought about recently, will be lively, intense, and eye-opening. Every residential appraiser will find this seminar beneficial. If you are a residential appraiser who wants to expand your practice to non-lender work or you are already doing non-lender work, this seminar will take your analytical abilities to the next level! Objectives:

  • Recognize inconsistencies with the definition of market value & the need to stay consistent with the type of value opinion developed.
  • Understand how market analysis supports the highest and best use decision, which drives the remainder of the appraisal process, and how to stay consistent with the highest and best use.
  • Realize the need for consistency within and between the three approaches to value.
  • Determine what constitutes functional & external obsolescence & how to maintain consistency with both in all 3 approaches.
  • Complete a thorough, meaningful, and consistent reconciliation.

Rural Area Appraisals: Freddie Mac Guidelines and Property Eligibility Requirements (7 CE Hours) @ AWA Community Room
May 10 @ 9:15 am – 4:15 pm
  • Instructor: R. Scott Hartman, SRA
  • Check in at 9 AM
  • Class begins at 9:15 AM
  • Lunch will be included.

IN-PERSON CLASS

Appraising rural properties can be challenging. A lack of comparable sales, uniqueness of homes, time between sales, and an expansive geography are factors appraisers must consider. This often means more time, research, and justification to determine an acceptable value for a property. To make this task less daunting, Freddie Mac identified common pain points and misconceptions among appraisers and lenders regarding collateral guidelines for rural properties. With the Appraisal Institute, they have developed a comprehensive rural appraisal training for practicing residential appraisers.

This 7-hour seminar addresses eligible and ineligible property qualifications; price ceiling limitations in rural markets; how urban development, farm productivity, and conversion to residential uses affect land prices; highest and best use problems in rural residential appraisals; how the Freddie Mac Appraisal Guidelines relate to rural appraisals; how to extract and support adjustments in rural residential appraisals; how to support deductions for unusual designs or functional problems; and how to use regression analysis to support a conclusion regarding highest and best use. An integrated case study reinforces the concepts presented. Objectives: 

  • Describe issues lenders have when defining rural markets and the eligibility of properties that secure loans to be purchased by Freddie Mac. 
  • Identify the issues regarding defining rural, suburban, and urban neighborhoods. 
  • Describe geographic and demographic issues in rural appraisals. 
  • Demonstrate issues of highest and best use analysis in rural appraisals. 
  • List & describe Freddie Mac Guidelines in sect.5601 of the Freddie Mac Single Family Seller/Servicer Guide. 
  • Review methodologies for extracting and supporting adjustment rates for comparable sales. 

Seminar Materials Include:

  • Seminar Handbook (305 pp.)
  • Participant Case Study and Solutions Booklet (188 pp.)
  • Pre-Class Downloads (116 KB)
  • Pre-Class Assignment: Case Study Appendix (127 pp.)
  • Pre-Class Memo (1 p.)
  • Opt Out Form (1 p.)
