Many times appraisers don't receive feedback from their clients after they complete the report. Did the report meet, exceed, or fall short of their expectations?
By taking this seminar, you'll understand what bothers commercial clients most about appraisal reports, and the analysis and items many appraisers typically miss. Hear what your clients don't tell you...and why they don't rehire you. We asked the Appraisal Institute's Client Advisory Committee, a committee comprised of governmental agencies, commercial lenders, and non-traditional residential clients to provide us with examples of the most problematic issues they face when reviewing appraisals. Explore all those issues and gain specific insights into areas where your reports might be lacking. Throughout the class we will discuss commercial issues and how we can provide a higher level of service to our clients.
Learn the best practices to use when performing valuation assignments. You'll be able to reach a mutually beneficial course of action that will lead to repeat assignments. Major areas that cause concern to clients will be addressed, including client regulatory needs, legal descriptions, easement language, appraisal report exhibits, special issues related to vacant land, sensitivity of DCF inputs and more. After this seminar, you'll better meet your clients needs and prepare reports that are logical, thorough, and accurate.
