Live Webinar: A Review of Disciplinary Cases
$55.95
Tuesday Jan 27 , 12:00PM - 3:00PM EST
Approval #: C02150
Sponsor Code:
Hours: 3.00


Disciplinary cases against appraisers are on the increase throughout the United States due to several factors, most significantly the Dodd-Frank requirement that lending institutions and AMCs must report suspected violations of USPAP to state enforcement agencies.  This course is designed to make the appraiser aware of what not to do by presenting not only guidance, but also a significant number of actual appraiser disciplinary cases.  These cases demonstrate the types of violations that are prosecuted by state appraisal enforcement agencies, as well as the types of disciplinary sanctions handed down by these agencies.  The applicability of USPAP will be addressed, along with examples of significant willful violations, and minor errors that affect the credibility of assignment results.  The Appraisal Foundation's Voluntary Disciplinary Action Matrix plays an important role in this course, as students will have an opportunity to review the matrix and apply it to case studies and discussion exercises that are based on actual disciplinary cases that have been adjudicated by states. Poll questions are used to reinforce the material.

Live Webinar: Introduction to Complex Appraisal Assignments
$85.95
Wednesday Jan 28 , 11:00AM - 4:00PM EST
Approval #: C01975
Sponsor Code:
Hours: 5.00


This course is designed for residential appraisers who want to expand their skill set to enable them to take on more difficult and complex assignments, and for those who want to learn new techniques for developing creative solutions to complex residential appraisal problems. It will give the student a good understanding of various techniques that can be used in appraising unique and difficult properties. The course begins with an overview of the factors that make a property complex. Unique physical characteristics, nonconformity, and location can all contribute to making an appraisal assignment difficult and complex. Rapidly changing market conditions, lack of sales data and governmental restrictions may also add elements to an assignment that increase its complexity. Since no two complex assignments are the same, the course is designed to teach students a systematic approach to solving the appraisal problem. In some cases, multiple techniques are provided for example problems, demonstrating that there may be more than one solution for a complex appraisal problem. Students will apply some of the techniques learned to “real world problems” that are designed to reinforce the learning experience.

Live Webinar: Analyze This! Applications of Appraisal Analysis
$69.95
Thursday Jan 29 , 12:00PM - 4:00PM EST
Approval #: C02112
Sponsor Code:
Hours: 4.00


This course concentrates on proper analysis for residential appraisers. Analysis is the genesis of value. We will start with a review of unacceptable appraisal practices as identified by the GSEs. After looking at several definitions of analysis, the focus will turn to areas of analysis that are frequently missing from appraisal reports and from appraisal work files, as required by USPAP and regulators, including but not limited to: support for exposure time, support for the highest and best use conclusion, support for effective age and economic life conclusions. Then we will concentrate on the market analysis (1004MC) and on the sales analysis; again with USPAP and regulatory compliance in mind. We will also focus on comparable sales selection, qualitative, and statistical analysis.

Live Webinar: Reviewer's Checklist
$69.95
Tuesday Feb 17 , 11:00AM - 3:00PM EST
Approval #: C02134
Sponsor Code:
Hours: 4.00


This course concentrates on proper analysis and reporting of both residential and non-residential appraisal report reviews.  At the heart of reviewing is, of course, understanding what is required for proper development and reporting of the real estate appraisal.  Therefore, the first part of the course focuses on proper development and reporting of the residential appraisal.

 

Once understood, the material moves into the review process wherein the reviewer develops and reports the opinion of the quality of another appraiser’s work.  In order to assist the reviewer with the development process, a residential review checklist, compiled from a variety of sources (USPAP, GSEs, Government Agencies, etc.) is provided and discussed at length.  A non-residential review checklist has also been included and discussed at length.

 

USPAP frequently asked questions dealing with the review process are also presented and discussed.

 

And, finally, there are two case studies – one residential and one non-residential – which will allow the student to demonstrate mastery of the information provided.  The students will review one, or both, time permitting, using the checklist to help identify potential non-compliance issues.

Live Webinar: UAD - Up Close and Personal
$55.95
Thursday Feb 19 , 11:00AM - 2:00PM EST
Approval #: C02111
Sponsor Code:
Hours: 3.00


In 2011, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac launched the Uniform Mortgage Data Program (UMDP) initiative, which standardizes data provided by lenders to these two mortgage giants. A key part of this initiative is the Uniform Appraisal Dataset (UAD). Residential appraisers have had almost two years of working with the UAD, but there are still significant misunderstandings relating to key requirements of the UAD. This course begins by briefly reminding the appraiser of the purpose of the UAD. It then moves to explain “hard stops”, which can result from information in the appraisal report not being presented in compliance with the UAD. As of the writing of this course, four hard stops have been implemented. Effective January of 2014, four more will be introduced and three more are expected to be introduced in late 2014. It is important that the appraiser “get it right” the first time, so the hard stops, whether currently in effect or proposed are identified. Fannie and Freddie continue to have problems with information provided in the appraisal report. Section 3 of the course focuses on those problem areas by providing a more in depth presentation of what is expected of the appraiser.
