Course Name: Real Estate Appraisal.

Course Author: 360training.com, Inc.

Course Description: In order to own and convey property in a market economy it is necessary for that property to be assigned a specific monetary value. This process, unlike, say, that of assigning value to durable goods-which have specific materials, production and marketing costs-can be somewhat more involved. With property, the fixed costs-building materials and labor costs-are always accompanied by more esoteric factors that go to make property more (or less) valuable. Becoming a member of the group that understands and applies these factors is a bit more complex than simply being able to understand a balance sheet.

The objective of this course is to familiarize the student with the principles, theories, duties and activities that pertain to real estate appraisal and valuation. Developing an opinion of value is what the real estate appraiser does, but, as we’ve alluded to, this is far from an effortless process. Understanding the obligation of the real estate industry to promote professionalism and ethical business practices is a beginning to being able to carry out this process such that it is beneficial to licensees, consumers and the market in which they do business.

As well as touching upon general standards by which the value of property should be established, this course is broken down into separate lessons which cover.

  • The Role of a Real Estate Appraiser
  • Federal Legislation and National Agencies Governing the Industry
  • An Overview of Basic Value Principles
  • The Dynamics of the Real Estate Market
  • Three Approaches to Appraisal
  • The Appraisal Process
  • Appraisal Standards and Enforcement in California
  • Real Estate Appraisal Practice Exercises

Completing this course will leave the student with a good understanding of fundamental principles of appraisal, methods of real estate valuation, the various kinds of appraisal licensure and certification, the diverse types of appraisal, and what license or certificate is appropriate for given ones. In addition, the course examines the ways in which appraisal can affect both the larger economy and the availability of housing. The course concludes with real – world practice lessons in which students apply their new knowledge to examples and case studies.

Cost: $19.

Hours of Continuing Education Credit: 5 hours.

Method of Presentation: This course is delivered entirely through the internet, including the final exam. No printed materials are provided.

Refund Policy: All tuition and fees paid for the course are due and refundable when: (a) the course of instruction is discontinued by the school, preventing a student from completing the course; OR (b) the enrollment of student was procured as a result of any misrepresentation in advertising, promotion materials of the school, or representation made by an owner or employee of the school. All refunds will be completed within 30 days after the effective date of enrollment termination.

Validation Requirements:
Our authentication system incorporates a mechanism for preventing fraud by ensuring that the student registered for the course is actually engaged in the course material. During course enrollment, students create a personal registration profile by entering personal information on a secure page so that the provider may process certification. The required information is sensitive in nature and may include SSN, driver’s license number, address, and form of payment. During registration, the system also prompts the user for additional personal validation information used during the course: “What are the last four digits of your SSN?” / “How many doors does your vehicle have?” / “How did you renew your driver’s license last?” / etc.

Randomly, the user is prompted with a personal validation question at several points during the course; these questions are based on the answers provided by the student during registration. Additionally, the questions are timed and must be answered correctly in order for the trainee to proceed with the course. If the question supplied is incorrect, the course is temporarily suspended and the trainee is prompted to call the provider to explain why they failed validation. Their information is verified by a trainer who can then remotely unlock the course to allow the student to proceed with the coursework. If this personal information is not verified, the provider will suspend the student from any further access, refund any tuition payments collected and take the appropriate administrative enforcement actions. This validation sequence is enforced randomly on multiple occasions upon entering, taking and exiting the course.

Testing Requirements:
At the end of each lesson there will be a short quiz of 10 multiple choice questions. You must pass this quiz with a 70% or better in order to move forward with the course. The quiz will be automatically graded as you complete it. Failure to pass the quiz with 70% will result in repeating the lesson.

For the final exam, the student will have 20 minutes (1 minute for each multiple choice question) to complete the twenty (20) multiple choice, closed – book final and will need to score 70% or better in order to pass. The student will not be able to print or download the exam. After the 20 minutes have passed the student will automatically be logged out of the final.

Please note that the student will only have one chance to take the final exam.
