Valuing subdivisions offers general appraisers unique challenges. This new seminar provides a complete look at subdivision valuation methodology as it relates to valuing improved subdivisions. Appraisers who provide opinions of value for proposed subdivisions or a group of existing lots of units will find this seminar a valuable source of reference and ideas. Students will come away with advanced techniques appraisers need to value a group of lots or units that must be marketed over a period of time. Comprehensive examples are provided to explain how line item profit and discount rate selection are handled in conjunction with discounted cash flow analysis. Ample coverage is given to typical problems encountered by appraisers in specific valuation scenarios.
Advanced examples using the income approach are provided explaining how line item profit and discount rate selection are handled in conjunction with discounted cash flow analysis. This sets the stage for more detailed coverage of income, sales comparison and cost approach applications in subdivision valuation.
