General Appraiser Sales Comparison Approach is an in-depth look at this valuation analysis method. It begins with detailed discussions of property comparability, techniques used to gather and verify data for a subject property, and use of this data in selecting appropriate comparable properties and neighborhoods for analysis in the approach. The course explores ways to sort and analyze data and effectively apply certain statistical analysis tools. Quantitative and qualitative analysis of comparable sales using units and elements of comparison is approached through extensive practice problems, case studies, and lecture.
