Review Case Studies-Residential applies the review process to practical problems that residential reviewers face every day. In Review Theory-Residential, participants learned about developing review opinions of completeness, accuracy, adequacy, relevance, reasonableness, appropriateness, and credibility specific to another appraiser’s work, including reasons for disagreement. This course puts the theory into practice through realistic problems, work applications, group discussions, and an extended case study. Come prepared to be challenged. This course will be beneficial for reviewers, appraisers, and other real estate professionals who regularly work with appraisals and reviews.

Please note Designated Members and Candidates for Designation will receive the discounted AI Price for Advanced Education courses: Review Theory-Residential and Review Case Studies-Residential. All others will pay the Full Price.

• Effectively develop and communicate opinions of completeness, accuracy, adequacy, relevance, reasonableness, appropriateness, credibility, and reasons for disagreement
