This course provides an in-depth look at statistical analysis, mathematical modeling and the principles of real estate finance. It teaches skills that are appropriate for appraisal of both residential and income producing properties.  The primary focus will be on residential applications.   The course is structured to conform to the 2008 Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria established by the Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB) of the Appraisal Foundation. It is part of the Required Core Curriculum.   Starting with a discussion and examples explaining the importance of statistical analysis for real property appraisers, it progresses through such topics as descriptive and inferential statistics, graphical analysis, measures of central tendency, and measures of dispersion.   Then, mathematical and valuation modeling are demonstrated. In this same section, AVM’s are also covered, along with linear regression and multiple regression analysis.   The last section will investigate the history of financing and the flow of funds. The role of the Federal Reserve System will be explored, along with how mortgages work. There will be extensive analysis of mortgage types, terms, and calculations showing the effects of changes in terms of payment patterns.   An HP 12C calculator will be required for this course. Keystroke solutions will be provided throughout the course for the many statistical and financial problems employed.   There is a required one-hour proctored exam at the end that must be taken in a monitored setting.
