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!

"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

Building on the skills and techniques highlighted in Residential Applications Part 1: Using Technology to Measure and Support Assignment Results, this practical, hands-on seminar provides residential appraisers with an additional set of technological tools to measure and support work results that will increase client satisfaction.

Learn how to create charts, graphs, and tables to provide market-derived support for the following appraisal issues: neighborhood age and sale price, neighborhood predominant age and sale price, exposure time, gross living area adjustments, site value and site adjustments, stigma, external obsolescence, liquidation value, and market analysis using the Fannie Mae 1004MC. Immediately use your seminar handbook full of examples and step-by-step instructions for later reference. This could be one of the most valuable residential seminars you have ever taken!

Upon completion of the seminar, participants should be able to:
• Apply spreadsheets, PivotTables, simple regression, charts and graphs to everyday appraisal problems
• Support a neighborhood age range and predominant age
• Support a neighborhood price range and predominant sale price
• Support an opinion of exposure time
• Support a gross living area adjustment
• Support a site value and site adjustments
• Support stigma
