Learn to appraise convenience stores and gas stations. Updated and expanded, this is the only nationally-accredited instruction on the valuation of these special-purpose properties.

Important convenience industry trends are identified, such as hypermarket competition and today’s reliance on food service profitability. You will receive instruction in measuring trade area supply and demand, and applying the three approaches to value. Learn how to confidently:

  • Forecast store revenue,
  • Deduct operating expenses, and
  • Separate earnings to real estate, FF&E and intangibles.

The seminar includes learning aids such as video interviews, valuation field examples, an FF&E value calculator, and an automated EBITDA Excel template.

Module 1: Industry Assessment
Module 2: Trade Area Analysis
Module 3: Site, Store and Fuel Service
Module 4: Valuation Assessment
Module 5: Case Study

The modules in this seminar follow closely the Appraisal Institute’s book, Convenience Stores and Retail Fuel Properties: Essential Appraisal Issues.

There are a total of nine mandatory student exercises and a final case study assignment to give students hands-on experience in applying the seminar concepts. These exercises are intense and require a fair amount of time to complete them. Please note that the instructor may take 3-5 days to review your assignment so plan your time accordingly. You can advance through the program while you are waiting for your instructor to review your work. You will receive the completion certificate only upon receiving a satisfactory review of your final case study assignment.

An automated Excel worksheet with the suggested solution to the case study is provided at the end of the seminar.
