An appraisal report is both the final step and a critical element in the appraisal process, one that can successfully (or unsuccessfully) communicate your findings to a client. In this course your instructor will introduce some of the techniques and procedures associated with writing a proper appraisal report, as well as guide you through the various reporting options available, including narrative-type reports. Foundational requirements for these reports are taken from USPAP and intended users such as Fannie Mae and HUD. This course also features interactive case studies which require you to write parts of two appraisal reports: one on a single-family dwelling, and the other on a three-unit residential income property. 

There is a mandatory one-hour proctored exam at the end that must be taken in a monitored setting. A calculator is recommended for this course.

Chapter list:

1. Appraising vs. Reporting
2. Reporting Basics and Options

4. The Uniform Residential Appraisal Report
5. The Uniform Appraisal Dataset
6. Other Form Reporting Options
7. Narrative Appraisal Reports

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to navigate and student friendly courses. I like that I can print the chapters and read them on paper rather than having to stare at my machine and then go back and take the quizzes for the course work. It also makes online classwork much more convenient since I am able to take the material with me and not have to have a laptop on hand at all times.

Do you have a link of locations where and when the exams are offered ? I'm in the chicago south burbs. Are the exams offered on a Saturday?

Asked by: john richter
Here is a link to the continuing education offerings in Illinois: https://www.mckissock.com/appraisal/continuing-education/illinois/ ; refine the results on the left by choosing “classroom” , this will narrow the results to live classes only. We have some Saturday offerings in the Chicago area; these are in Northbrook and Oakbrook.

Asked by: boogie man
Yes, there will be a proctored exam. The length of the exam will depend on the amount of credit hours of the course.
