Fannie Mae's new Collateral Underwriter (CU) requirement requires residential appraisers to prove their adjustments.
This seminar provides the knowledge needed to do just that!

"I created this pivot table in less than 10 minutes to prove a swimming pool adjustment. Supporting my adjustments is much easier now that I attended the Residential Applications seminar and learned to use Excel with data downloaded from the MLS."
Sandy Adomatis, SRA

"The seminar is exactly what residential appraisers need today to understand how CU works, since it explains linear regression using their own MLS data combined with Excel. It gives them the tools to use regression in their own markets to understand what Fannie Mae's CU will be generating for typical adjustments."
Craig Steinley, SRA, AI-RRS

This seminar provides easy-to-use, highly efficient tools to supplement and enhance the traditional methods of adjustment and support through the use of technology. You will gain practical, hands-on, step-by-step training on how to use charts, graphs, spreadsheets, and pivot tables to support residential assignment results for market conditions; days on market; sales-to-list price ratio; adjustments for location, design, quality of construction, and other property amenities; market extraction for cost and depreciation estimates; and market extraction for market rent and gross rent multipliers.

Upon completion of the seminar, participants should be able to:
• Recognize the connection between statistics and residential appraising
• Apply graphic analysis to solve and support market analysis issues
• Apply graphic analysis to support conclusions for the three approaches to value
• Apply Excel techniques to analyze data that can be imported into the Fannie Mae 1004MC appraisal report form

• Basic level of knowledge of spreadsheets, especially Excel, obtained from seminars such as Using Spreadsheet Programs in Real Estate Appraisals—The Basics or Thinking Outside the Form: Tools, Techniques, and Opportunities for Residential Appraising
