This seminar provides appraisers with a step-by-step, bulletproof methodology for conducting FHA or conventional residential appraisal site inspections. The methodology for making observations was developed by hundreds of consultants over the course of two decades. View State Course Approvals
Extensive videos, lectures & graphics are shown to illustrate a methodology and clearly describe the concepts inherent to a successful site inspection.
The seminar includes proprietary forms and terminology you can integrate with your appraisal reports. We also share valuable phrases that will help you clearly identify the limitations of your observations and reduce your liability while you accurately portray the conditions at the subject property.
With the September 2015 adoption of the FHA handbook 4000.1, the seminar is more relevant and useful than ever. Sections of the 4000.1 handbook germane to site inspections and property conditions have been included and are downloadable for your convenience.
Although there may be nuances relevant to your specific geographic area, the course provides valuable tools to make observations and identify conditions.
During the seminar, we will detail a value-added service that could increase your fee by $150 – $200 in just 15 minutes.
