Fundamentals of Separating Real Property, Personal Property, and Intangible Business Assets provides the theoretical and analytical framework for separating the tangible and intangible assets of real estate centric businesses. Through discussion, lecture, readings, and case studies, participants will apply the theory of the firm and the concept of economic profit to the solution of problems and case studies related to ad valorem taxation, eminent domain, loan underwriting, and transaction price allocation.
An overview of business valuation procedures and clarification of real estate and business valuation terminology will be provided so participants become familiar with the terminology relevant to separating asset values. The class will review the legal foundations for property rights, be introduced to the methodologies, and become aware of the controversial and unresolved issues in this field. Finally, participants will learn about allocating real estate, personal property, and intangible asset values.
Fundamentals of Separating Real Property, Personal Property, and Intangible Business Assets contains diverse opinions regarding appraisal theory and applications. Neither this course nor the Appraisal Institute advocates a particular theory or method. Rather, each appraiser must come to his or her own conclusion based on the property type, local market customs, and scope of work.
