Residential Property Measurement and ANSI Z765
For a large number of appraisers, measuring houses is something they learned from their supervisor many years ago. Unfortunately, a lack of uniform standards for measurement and calculation has resulted in measurement inconsistencies within the profession. This course will cover best practices for measuring residential dwellings and will focus primarily on the ANSI Z765-2021 Standard, which is the only nationwide standard for measuring properties that has been adopted by state appraisal regulatory agencies. This standard has also been adopted by Fannie Mae. The course will also address guidelines and requirements for measuring GLA and GBA established by other entities, such as HUD/FHA.
