Supervisory Appraiser/Trainee Appraiser Course
Aug 23 @ 8:30 am – 3:30 pm

Instructors: Brett W. Hall, MAI, SRA

Description: 

This six hour Minnesota Supervisory Appraiser/Trainee Course targets all individuals who became Supervisory Appraisers or Trainee Appraisers on Jan. 1. Many MN Appraiser Supervisors were under the impression, that if they were a supervisor, or a trainee, prior to 1/1/2015; that the new law did not apply to them. Appraisers understood they would be ‘grandfathered’ into this new law. This is correct, they are, but for the original supervisor/trainee relationship they had as of January 1. HOWEVER, if a supervisor adds any NEW trainees, or if a trainee works with another licensed/certified appraiser, who was NOT their supervisor on January 1; then attending this course is a requirement for these individuals involved.

Basic Appraisal Procedures
Aug 26 @ 8:30 am – Aug 29 @ 5:00 pm

Instructors: Craig M. Harrington, SRA, AI-RRS, and Brett W. Hall, MAI, SRA

Description: 

Apply the principles and concepts learned in Basic Appraisal Principles. This four-day course takes you step-by-step through the valuation process:

  • Defining the problem
  • Collecting and analyzing data
  • Reaching a final opinion of value
  • Communicating the appraisal

Learn about the three approaches to reaching an opinion of value—income capitalization, cost, and sales comparison—and apply them in true-to-life case studies and problems. After examining income capitalization methods and formulas, learn how rates and multipliers are derived. Through case studies discover the steps and concepts involved in the cost approach—how appraisers estimate the cost of constructing a reproduction of or replacement for an existing structure; the three major components of depreciation and methods for estimating and allocating depreciation; and land and site valuation.

The course will guide you through the sales comparison approach including researching the market, verifying information, selecting units of comparison, conducting a comparative analysis, making adjustments, and reconciliation. Complete key sections of an appraisal report. Finally, the course provides an introduction to property description and construction and design basics.
