This course provides an overview of the standards that affect real estate noted in the 2013 International Valuation Standards. Specifically written for domestic and international valuation experts with a working knowledge of valuation techniques as well as for those with a financial and real estate background, this course will provide a working knowledge of the current and more user-friendly International Valuation Standards. The course provides guidance and examples and shows participants how to apply the IVS principles as widely as possible. Emphasis on ethical behavior and competent practice will help foster a higher level of public trust benefiting the real estate valuation profession in the USA and overseas.
Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to:
- Recognize how IVS provides a common basis for comparison by knowing whether or not an assignment has been completed correctly.
- Recognize that IVS is a reference source for those outside the valuation profession and especially those who have little knowledge of appraisal practice.
