This seminar goes beyond methodology to explore how to measure a property rights adjustment, the theory underlying the use of a leasehold yield rate (YLH) to value the leasehold, as well as the application of a property rights adjustment in all three approaches to value. Reg Rates Increase on Jan 7.
The course begins with a thorough review of existing manufactured housing products then delves into CHOICEHomeSM, a new accessible, affordable addition to America’s housing stock.
This course is an important course that provides information about standards and ethics requirements for valuers in general and, more specifically, for valuers who belong to the Appraisal Institute.
