Market analysis and highest and best use are key elements involved in a credible real property valuation. In this course your instructor will review the basics of analysis, including definitions, terminology and various common methodologies used to extract information from the market. Following the analysis section is an exploration of the concept of highest and best use and the theory of consistent use. Examples and hypothetical problems accompany each section, allowing you to work through the scenario as you might in a real world appraisal.

At first I was skeptical, but then after getting started this course was so amazing that when I was at Myrtle Beach I had a t shirt with the course title air brushed so I would never forget

Matthew / Arkansas
This course was informative, easy to follow, and unlike other courses I have taken with a different online school, I did not find myself bored and uninterested by their redundant material.

Jason / Ohio
This course was very interesting and tought me a lot of thimgs I didn't know. Quizzes were given directly after it was still fresh on your mind.

Matthew / Maryland
Fantastic online course! The material was presented in a easy to understand and organized manner, regular quizzes facilitated comprehension, and the online format allowed for completion at a convenient pacing. Plus, nobody complained about me not wearing pants during class, which is a recurring issue with traditional classroom settings for qualifying education courses. I would recommend this course and format to anyone requiring continuing/qualifying education credit or those strongly opposed to pants.

Effective and well organized.
