Each real estate licensee should be familiar with the basic concepts of the appraisal process and how that process affects their clients. Inside this course, we will find a new understanding of the appraiser's role in the mortgage lending process. This text is based on real life appraisal scenarios and situations. We will discuss and analyze examples of low appraisals, and explore how they could have been more effectively handled. This class is designed to be educational and fun. The "grass is greener" theory often applies between agents and appraisers, and this class will also dispel some of the common myths about appraisers and the appraisal process.

Appraisals affect a real estate agent's ability to help clients get loans and buy homes. We will address many issues as they relate to today's fast paced world of real estate and the new appraisal process. There were numerous sources utilized in compiling this course and these examples are shown for educational purposes only.
