Course Description

PP202 is the second class in the Principles of Valuation course of study of the American Society of Appraisers (ASA) for Personal Property Appraisers. The PP202 class covers the development of the scope of work for appraisal assignments, including methods of research and analysis of markets, and Approaches to Value. This course also provides students with expanded appraisal terminology. Students research the property they selected in PG201 and learn to analyze the data to conclude value - they will learn to communicate that information in a professional appraisal report in PP203. The class instructor will be available to assist in final selection of the property. Note: The property should have a Replacement Value of at least $5,000.00 but not exceeding $250,000.00. This course is a prerequisite for PP203. Successful completion of PP201 is a prerequisite for this course. 

Instructional Methods

Instructor will present material through lecture and PowerPoint as well as classroom exercises and group discussions. Overnight assignments may be given for review and discussion, as well as for the next class.

Course Audience

This course provides individuals wishing to become appraisers, or related professionals interested in augmenting their valuation skills, with the second course introducing the research and appraisal development concepts necessary for appraisal practice. Candidates who have previously successfully completed this course and designated appraisers may wish to retake this class to brush up and stay informed about the currently accepted appraisal research and development requirements.
