  Description  

The technological advances of the last 10 years have caused a significant change in the real estate appraisal profession. For example, today nearly all databases are computerized; it is imperative that appraisers easily retrieve, list, and analyze large quantities of data. During this hands-on seminar, participants will use Microsoft Excel to develop a spreadsheet skill set that includes the use of thousands of the program’s applications. By developing spreadsheet skills that report statistical analysis and provide graphic illustrations, appraisers will have additional professional skills to meet the needs of a more diversified client base.

• Recognize the many advantages of using spreadsheet programs
