Toolbox Topics Workshop - Special Consideration in the Analysis of Highest and Best Use
June 20, 2019
Highest and Best Use is often cited by reviewers as an area of weakness in appraisals. While proficiency with HBU is fundamental to the appraisal process, it is a tricky concept. This seminar is designed to hone your understanding of the application of HBU analysis in the appraisal process. We will review key processes and methods of market analysis and highest and best use analysis as applied to real property appraisal. Using illustrations from rural real estate, the seminar utilizes examples to demonstrate the application of these processes. The two-hour workshop will be followed by a social hour for networking and exchanging information. 2 hours CE approved with BREA and ASFMRA.

Workshop - 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.
Social Hour - 4:00 - 5:00 p.m.
