This course is part of the Required Core Curriculum to become a Certified Residential Appraiser. It begins with a thorough explanation of complex properties. Properties may be complex because of their physical characteristics, property rights or ownership, or market conditions. Other topics covered include USPAP considerations; particularly the COMPETENCY RULE and the SCOPE OF WORK RULE. In Chapter three the valuation process is detailed along with how it related to the development process detailed in Standards Rule 1-2 and in Chapter 4 the reporting process for complex properties is addressed. The three approaches are illustrated with emphasis on complex properties. There are 15 advanced case studies that illustrate the practical application of these principles. In addition to the end-of-chapter quizzes and final exam, this course contains mini-quizzes that will test the knowledge of the material throughout each chapter. The mini-quizzes will help prepare you for not only the end-of-chapter quiz, but also the cumulative final exam at the end of the course.

Great course

Matthew / North Carolina
This course is by far the easiest to navigate through screens. I have taken many other online continuing education and update appraisal classes and McKissock is the best so far for the way the classes are organized and the price. I will be taking all my online classes through McKissock from now on.
