Business Practices & Ethics (6 CE hrs) @ SJ Technology Park, Room 246 (upstairs)
Mar 19 @ 8:00 am – 4:00 pm
  • Registration 8am; Class 8:30am
  • Includes morning snack & light lunch
  • Instructor: Mary Fox, MAI

Business Practices and Ethics is an important course that provides information about standards and ethics requirements for valuers in general and, more specifically, for valuers who belong to the Appraisal Institute. Through discussion questions and examples, the class compares behavior and actions that illustrate violations of the Code of Professional Ethics, and participants learn how referrals can be made. Participants are also introduced to the Appraisal Institute Guide Notes to the Standards of Professional Practice and use these Guide Notes to resolve everyday appraisal practice problems. At the end of the course, they learn about common errors in appraisal reports and review reports, and they respond to questions about challenges that arise in appraisal practice such as requests for updates and requests to change or add intended users. These are common business practice issues that appraisers encounter in various assignments, including mortgage lending, litigation, and property tax appeal. Other real-life scenarios in the course illustrate less common business practice issues such as an appraiser’s obligation when illegal or criminal behavior is observed.

Review Theory – Residential (15-17 CE hrs) @ SJ Technology Park, Room 246 (upstairs)
Apr 27 – Apr 29 all-day

Daily Schedule

  • Monday, April 27th    8:00 am registration, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm class  (1 hour lunch)

  • Wednesday, April 29th     9:00 am exam (not required for CE, only for designation)

Includes morning snack & light lunch

Instructor: Joseph Magdziarz, MAI, SRA, AI-GRS, AI-RRS

 


 

Review Theory—Residential is the fundamental review course that all reviewers of residential appraisals and reviews should have in their educational background. It is a required course for individuals pursuing the Appraisal Institute Residential Review Designation (AI-RRS, Appraisal Institute Residential Review Specialist).

At the core of this course is the review process. Participants explore the seven steps in the process as they apply to reviews of residential work including, but not limited to, those subject to GSE requirements. To be a reviewer, an appraiser must learn how to develop opinions of completeness, accuracy, adequacy, relevance, and reasonableness relative to the work under review. These opinions must be refined through tests of reasonableness to develop reconciled opinions of appropriateness and credibility.

The material addresses how requirements of the review process compare with those of the Fannie Mae Form 2000/Freddie Mac Form 1032, One-Unit Residential Review Form, as well as other GSE documents such as the Fannie Mae Selling Guide. Other topics include complex or challenging residential review assignments such as those involving limited data, nonconforming properties, less common ownership types, or unusual properties such as geodesic domes and hobby farms. By taking this course, participants will gain invaluable confidence in the fundamentals of review.

NOTE: Students pursuing the AI-RRS designation must attend all 3 days and successfully pass the exam. Students who are not pursuing the designation but seeking 15 hours of CE credit are not required to attend on Wednesday.
