This AQB-approved course will help you apply meaningful market analysis in valuation assignments. It presents the basic concepts and terminology of market analysis and marketability studies, then shows how marketability studies provide vital information for the highest and best use decision. Throughout the course, the emphasis is on conducting a reliable analysis of demand. You’ll gain practice in applying methods for inferred, or trend, analysis to three property types—a suburban residential subdivision, an existing multifamily property, and an office building. Using the tools introduced in the course will help you increase the reliability of your highest and best use analyses and support the conclusions you reach in the three approaches to value.
The course also provides a transitional discussion to prepare you for marketability studies using fundamental demand analysis, which is covered in the Appraisal Institute’s Advanced Market Analysis and Highest & Best Use course.
