  Description  
This four-day course meets AQB criteria. In Part 2 of a two-course package, you will be provided with the tools to write sections of a narrative report. You will complete eight writing assignments based on sections of a narrative appraisal report for the case study property you analyzed in Part 1. Successful completion of this course should increase your ability to 1) apply a wide range of appraisal procedures to solve complex appraisal problems and 2) use a narrative reporting format with confidence to explain and support your conclusions convincingly. By successfully completing the course and exam, you will have met most states’ education requirements in the content area identified as an appraisal subject matter elective. Individuals who are seeking the Appraisal Institute SRA designation can take this course and Advanced Residential Applications and Case Studies/Part 1 as an alternative to the Residential Demonstration Report requirement.
