The use of Microsoft Excel is widespread in the appraisal industry. Looking for new ways to leverage Excel tools in your appraisal business? Here are four excellent Microsoft Excel resources offered by McKissock Learning—including a Pro-Series webinar on Wednesday, January 27, 2021, “Using Excel for Pairing Data to Extract GLA Adjustments.”

Webinar: Using Excel for Pairing Data to Extract GLA Adjustments

One of the most common appraisal problems is determining the contributory value for the differences in gross living area (GLA). While appraisers can find and export large amounts of data from the local MLS, they need a way to efficiently manage and analyze this data to determine a credible GLA adjustment factor that is both supported and defensible.

Join us for a Pro-Series webinar on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 from 11am-12pm EST, “Using Excel for Pairing Data to Extract GLA Adjustments.” In this one-hour, non-credit webinar, presenters Rob Frazier and Cathy Horwitz will walk you through the process of extracting market derived adjustments for the differences in GLA using basic and advanced Excel tools to arrive at a supported and defensible adjustment factor.
