Seminar Descriptions

**Appraising Commercial Properties in a Declining Market


This workshop is designed to assist in appraising commercial properties in a declining market. It includes suggestions on resources for obtaining information and provides survey templates to address the COVID-19 market. Discussion will include recognizing the state of the market and changes that have occurred, with an emphasis on data analysis and interpretation. The workshop material includes the most up-to-date information for economic trends for retail, office, hotels, mini-storage, apartments, senior housing, and mobile home parks. Each of these groups have unique issues resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The workshop will include possible solutions to these challenging valuation issues, and there will be discussion on how to properly address these market condition changes using all three approaches to value. It will provide suggestions on proper documentation and handling of public relations during unstable times and will include a supplement with state economic data to help reconcile the national trends with the local scene.
