Live Webinar: Analyze This! Applications of Appraisal Analysis
$69.95
Monday Sep 26 , 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 Sep 27 , 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.

Live Webinar: Work File: Your Best Defense Against an Offense
$85.95
Wednesday Sep 28 , 3:00PM - 8:00PM EST
Approval #: C02250
Sponsor Code:
Hours: 5.00


As a practicing appraisal professional, are you aware of the importance of keeping accurate, highly-detailed workfiles for your transactions? If your workfile comes under examination, every “i” must be dotted and “t” crossed in order to avoid trouble. In fact, one of the most common disciplinary actions taken by licensing boards is the result of insufficient support in the workfile. Therefore, having a sound workfile not only keeps you compliant with USPAP, it also encourages a high level of public trust in your work as an appraisal professional. Want to learn more about the ways a top notch work file can protect your appraisal practice? Your instructor will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the RECORD KEEPING RULE and the SCOPE OF WORK RULE as the basis for helping to establish what information is necessary to ensure the appraiser produces credible assignment results. In addition, your instructor will cover Fannie Mae’s 1004 report form and on a page and section basis, identify the areas which are the least supported by file documentation, and the ways that the same information can be used to supported several different analyses in the workfile.

Live Webinar: The New FHA Handbook 4000.1
$85.95
Thursday Sep 29 , 11:00AM - 4:00PM EST
Approval #: C02249
Sponsor Code:
Hours: 5.00


As the culmination of a project that took over one year to complete, FHA has released the Single Family Housing Policy Handbook, also known as Handbook 4000.1. This Handbook is designed to consolidate FHA requirements into one single authoritative source, instead of having requirements scattered throughout several different handbooks and mortgagee letters. Effective September 14, 2015, Handbook 4000.1 is the “go-to” handbook for appraisers and lenders, and FHA appraisers need to become familiar with its requirements. After the mortgage meltdown of 2006-2009, FHA insured loans have made a comeback, and now have a significant share of the 1 to 4 family residential lending market. This seminar focuses on the new FHA Handbook 4000.1 with emphasis on revisions to FHA appraisal requirements and protocols. In addition, students will learn how to effectively stay up-to-date with FHA requirements.

For appraisers seeking placement on the FHA Appraiser Roster, this detailed seminar is essential. For the current FHA roster appraiser, it will provide useful insight and tips. The seminar was designed and written by Daniel A. Bradley, SRA, CDEI and Tracy Martin, CDEI.

Through the Uniform Collateral Data Portal® (UCDP®), Fannie Mae has captured unprecedented amounts of property appraisal data. Our analysis of the data has informed a variety of policy changes and was instrumental in the development of Collateral Underwriter® (CUTM). Since the roll-out of CU 18 months ago, we’ve engaged in countless hours of conversations with lenders about appraisal quality. In this session we’ll tackle the question of why appraisal quality is important to Fannie Mae and how we measure it. We’ll share insights into how we teach lenders to use CU, and we’ll recap recent policy changes, dispel myths, and give practical suggestions for how to navigate the new data-centric landscape.

“What exactly is regression?” “Do I need to understand fancy equations if a computer can just give me the answer?” “How does the regression model really relate to my sales comparison approach?” According to USPAP, you need data to back up and support your adjustments, and regression can aid in providing that support. As a crucial tool in your appraiser’s toolbox, it’s important to understand regression before you begin relying on it. Join Josh Walitt for Part 1 of this in-depth look at the basics of regression, so you understand what these “black box” software programs are telling us rather than simply obeying the machine.
