An Appraiser's Guide to CMA's
Thursday, October 15, 2015 from 10:00 AM to 1:15 PM (EDT)
Learn how to complete a CMA from an appraiser's point of view.
Utilizing the basic principles of the appraisal, agents will be taught how to search for the proper comparables, research various databases and complete a meaningful CMA. The goal for this seminar is to go above an administrative instruction on completion of the CMA and be enhanced by looking at it from an appraiser’s perspective. This course will identify the differences between appraiser/agents and appraisals/CMA’s. By the end of the class, agents should be able to complete a far more accurate CMA by utilizing new databases and methodology.
