By examining unusual and complex land valuation assignments, this seminar takes concepts covered in the Appraisal Institute curriculum to the next level. Besides lecture, discussion, and Q&A, sample case studies will demonstrate, primarily in Excel, conceptual and practical applications that participants will be able to incorporate into their day-to-day work. Suggested solution strategies for these assignments will be provided.

Upon completion of the seminar, participants should be able to

  • Utilize a land residual technique based on a DCF analysis to value land intended for two alternative competing uses (“for rental” apartments versus “for-sale” condos).
  • Determine the highest and best use of land when the legally permissible, physically possible, and financially feasible use(s) are very uncertain and cannot be determined using traditional methodologies.
  • Determine land value when its value is a function of a curvilinear relationship with its appropriate unit of comparison (in this case the value of land suitable for apartment development as a function of density).
  • Determine land rent using a non-traditional unit of comparison (in this case land rental value based on average traffic volume).
  • Estimate the value of land subject to a long-term ground lease with multiple forms of financial benefits accruing to the land owner.

  • If you plan on bringing a laptop, you will need to install Excel Analysis ToolPak. This add-in must be installed prior to class.
