Through theory, case studies, and examples, this course offers practical application of appraisal principles. Drill problems and a short case study allow students to put into practice the techniques presented in the course. An exam is given at the completion of the course for students requesting pre-certification credit. The basic appraisal section provides an overview of real estate appraisal approaches to valuation procedures, value, property description, residential applications, commercial applications, improvement construction, home inspection, and appraisal math.
