"Market Based Adjustments Series: Location Adjustment"

As many appraisers know, quantifiable adjustments based on market conditions are ideal, but finding the best fit for matched paired sales can be elusive. Toni Viens, MAI and McKissock Instructor, will be presenting the first of a four-part series related to residential valuation and comparable sale adjustments. Toni will provide examples on how sales—which may not be the actual ones used as comparables for a specific appraisal—can still be used for valid and supportable adjustments in the sale comparison approach to value. In this first webinar of the series, you will review location adjustment based on reasonable and reliable paired sales.
