International Financial Reporting Standards for the Real Property Appraiser
Throughout the world, accounting standards setters are working more closely than ever on investor transparency and protection projects. Use of fair value in accounting is growing in many parts of the world, including certain segments of the property market in the United States. Use of fair value as a standard is likely to provide many opportunities for commercial real estate appraisers because the opinions of third party specialists are often obtained to enhance the credibility and auditability of financial statements.
This practical course will help valuation professionals understand the relevant parts of the International Financial Reporting Standards that affect the valuation profession, including the use of common standards, terminology, and definitions. By working through international case studies, participants will learn the procedures for conducting fair valuation of fixed assets for financial reporting and how to conduct a test for asset impairment.
Valuation in Challenging Markets
As the global economy continues to interconnect, it is increasingly important for appraisers and users of appraisal reports to understand how valuations are affected by economic, financial, and legal variables and systems worldwide. Further, it is essential for appraisers to know how property value can be accurately estimated in challenging markets within the framework of International Valuation Standards (IVS).
International Valuation Standards Involving Real Estate

A working knowledge of IVS will foster both ethical behavior and competent practice. By becoming familiar with IVS, international valuation professionals and valuation professionals with international assignments will gain a high level of public trust and confidence which benefits the real estate valuation profession in the USA and overseas.
