Course Description

This course introduces students to compliance with laws and regulations in order for them to conduct their Personal Property appraisal practices. Using the information learned in the previous courses, participants expand their understanding of professional standards and the ethical requirements of an appraiser. The class allows students to utilize their analysis techniques for concluding Fair Market Value in an appraisal  assignment. Further insight into the auction market, the insurance industry, and how tort law affects appraisers is covered in this class. PP204 also examines the legal court precedents on which many appraisal practices and regulations are based.  As part of the class, students develop a Fair Market Value oral appraisal report for the property that they appraised in PP203.

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