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.
