  Description  
The topic of the Commercial Symposium is appraising Unique or Special Purpose Properties. Or maybe it should be labeled “Why did I take this assignment and what did I get myself into?”

The majority of our work comes from traditional residential and commercial property appraisals; homes, commercial buildings and land. But there is a whole world out there of non-traditional properties that need our valuation services. Think about the movie theater you visit on the weekend or the cellular communication tower you just placed your call through or the ship dock where you catch the ferry. All of these properties and many more need appraisals. Yet many appraisers are reluctant to take on these assignments for lack of knowledge, resources, or an understanding of the scope of work or how to bid the job.

This Commercial Symposium will discuss what Special Purpose Properties are, the benefits and the challenges of appraising these properties. It will also provide valuation techniques and guidelines of how to look at unique and special purpose property appraisals that practicing appraisers face with these assignments. Past experiences from seasoned appraisers will lay out a framework for tackling these challenging and interesting assignments.

Topics include
- Future of Commercial Appraisers – AVMs and the Attack on Expertise
- National Perspectives on the Appraisal Industry
- Hotel Market Update and Valuation Issues
- Residential Development – Trends in Construction, Land Costs, Absorption and Yield
- Houses of Worship – Divine Tips from an Expert
- Semiconductor Wafer Fabrication – Measuring Obsolescence
- The Story on Self-Storage

Jim Amorin, CEO - Appraisal Institute
Paul Chandler, MAI - CEO & Founder, Property Sciences
