For many appraisers, measuring one- to four-unit dwellings is something they learned from their supervisor many years ago.  However, 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 heavily on the ANSI Z765-2021 Standard, which is the only national standard for measuring properties adopted by state appraisal regulatory agencies.  The course also addresses Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac guidelines, as well as measuring 2-4 unit properties, which are not covered by ANSI.

  • Summarize why appraisers inspect and measure properties?
