Session Description:
Our opening session will begin with a very special guest speaker, William Black. He will share his expertise as a former regulator. He will do a “post mortem” on the housing crisis. Was lack of appraiser independence the root cause? What has changed? Is another housing crisis possible?

Complex Properties* (CE Session)

Session Description:
The role of the appraiser is to provide an objective, impartial, and unbiased opinion about the value of real property. That sounds straightforward until that complex assignment lands on your desk. This panel will drill down on these types of complex assignments- multi-family, new construction, high dollar luxury homes and the unique assignments.

Rick Langdon with Wells Fargo will present on luxury properties and the critical thinking necessary to provide clients with a reliable report. Danny Wiley of ServiceLink will provide details into the appraisal of multi-family dwellings.  Guy Hallman of Fifth Third Bank will discuss common issues in New Construction appraisals. Dustin Harris will touch on other unique appraisal assignments. What principles do you apply when there are no recent sales of a geodesic dome, a 15 acre llama farm with an airstrip, or the one bedroom chalet in a ski resort in your market?

With any of these types of properties learn what your clients need. Plotting a lot of data on a grid is likely not what they seek. You must tell the story and be able to communicate and support your conclusion. Learn what tools you already have in your toolbox that you can apply to each of these assignments.
