This two-day course provides an introduction to statistics, real estate finance, and modeling with applications to residential and commercial real estate appraisal. On the first day, you will develop an understanding of basic statistics and statistical analysis and learn how those skills can be used in valuation and evaluation practice.

On day two, you will gain an introductory understanding of real estate finance markets, learn about credit conditions and their impact values on appraisal, and calculate and interpret fundamental numbers on loan payments and balances.

Successful completion of the course and exam should satisfy most states’ education requirements in the content area identified as real estate finance, statistics, and valuation modeling. Participants should understand that this course will be a review and will not address more advanced topics.

This course revision includes an update on financial history and the future implications of the burst housing bubble. A discussion on how mortgages impact value also was added, as well as measuring volatility and standard deviations.

Note: Real Estate Finance, Statistics, and Valuation Modeling was designed according to the broad topical guidelines of the Appraisal Qualification Board as part of qualifying (i.e., prelicensing) education for both residential and general certified appraisers.
