These appraisals are often needed for insurance claims, legal claims or tax purposes. In this course, we will cover the basic components of appraising damaged real estate, and examine the valuations methodologies in general.
We will cover Uniform Standards Advisory Opinion 9 which addresses environmental conditions, and address its applicability to properties damaged by both manmade and natural disaster. The examples and case studies in this course are all from actual cases involving natural disasters. Students will learn about common errors and omissions and how to avoid them. We will cover minor damage issues, as well as more serious cases where vast neighborhoods or towns are destroyed.
Finally, we will go over case studies and discuss the methodologies employed and how the appraiser can successfully utilize them. We will also discuss do’s and don’ts regarding appraising real estate that has been damaged or destroyed by a disaster.
