Enroll in Review Case Studies—General and come prepared for the challenge of applying the review process and other concepts covered in Review Theory—General. You will enhance your review skills by preparing two required review reports based on two case studies that present some of the issues reviewers face in review assignments. For each case study, you will develop opinions on the completeness, accuracy, adequacy, relevance, reasonableness, appropriateness, and credibility of another appraiser’s work and then communicate your opinions in a review report you design and draft yourself. By preparing written review reports based on the case studies, you will gain confidence in the application of review techniques. This course will be beneficial for appraisers and other real estate professionals who regularly work with appraisals and reviews.

Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to:
• Effectively develop and communicate opinions of completeness, accuracy, adequacy, relevance, reasonableness, appropriateness, credibility, and reasons for disagreement
• Evaluate appraisal errors to distinguish whether they are trivial or material from a review perspective
• Approach a review assignment and determine on your own what makes a review good
• Create an appropriate review format based on the context of the assignment

Note. Review Case Studies—General builds on the concepts presented in Review Theory—General, a required course in the Appraisal Institute General Review Designation program (AI-GRS Appraisal Institute General Review Specialist). For more information regarding the requirements for the review designation, please click here.

Please note Designated Members and Candidates for Designation will receive the discounted AI Price for Advanced Education courses: Review Theory—General and Review Case Studies—General. All others will receive the Full Price.
