The 28-Hour Power Weekend is continuing ed for appraisers who would like to complete their license renewal education in one Olympian event.

WARNING: This is the ‘Arnold Schwarzenegger’ version of Appraiser Continuing Education. The series is not intended for the wimpy or faint of heart.

In response to requests from busy appraisers, The Real Estate Academy created The 28-Hour Power Weekend. This is a multi-day continuing ed event for procrastinating appraisers (or those who have been too busy to complete their license renewal requirements). The courses will be offered on consecutive days, enabling the time challenged appraiser to complete 28 hours of CE (or part of the 28 hours) at one event.

Partial enrollment is allowed. If you don’t need your entire 28-hours of CE, you are welcome to enroll in any segment that suits your needs and interests – just click on the title.

History of Value Thought for Appraisers

The rich history of valuation thought is of significance today. It has an impact on current methods and theories currently in use in appraisal practice. An understanding of the historical thinking about property and its value will provide the appraiser with greater insight and appreciation for current appraisal methodology.

Real Estate Encumbrances: The property rights and interests of non-owners

Real property is often bound by claims, liens and liabilities that may lessen its value. These encumbrances may also burden, obstruct or impair the use of a property. The course will identify specific encumbrances, how they are created, and their importance in the context of real estate valuation.

Fair Housing and Appraisal Bias

Appraisers are subject to state and federal Fair Housing Law, and understanding the law is important for compliance. In recent years there have been widely publicized instances of alleged appraiser bias. Consequently, the Virginia General Assembly has enacted a requirement of two hours continuing education in fair housing or appraisal bias. This course satisfies that requirement.

The course will address Virginia and U.S. fair housing statues and their application to appraisal practice; the Ethics Rule of USPAP; and Virginia appraiser regulations. Recent amendments to fair housing laws will be presented, including Hoarding as a protected disability.
CE Credit: 5 Hours.

Contract Analysis: USPAP SR 1-5

USPAP clearly requires analysis of contracts obtained by the appraiser, and it requires appropriate disclosure of the contract analysis. Where some appraisers fall short is in understanding basic legal concepts of contract. Others are unaware of what “analysis” means in the context of SR 1-5, and what constitutes proper disclosure. The course will cover:

  • The minimum elements that result in a valid contract
  • Examples of the kind of analysis for various contracts that satisfy USPAP
  • Specific illustrations of summary reporting of analysis for current and pending contracts
CE Credit: 5 Hours.
