Help your customer understand the appraised value in today's "crazy" market

With so many short sales and foreclosures, today's appraisal values (and consumer tempers) can be all over the place. Buyers want to make sure they are getting a good deal. They may wonder why a low ball offer on the short sale wasn't accepted. Gain insight and expertise to help your customer understand an appraised value in today's market.

After this program, you will be able to...

  • Explain the differences between the 3 approaches.
  • Explain the CMA approach in more detail.
  • Describe a good comp sale.
  • Tell why a short sale would be used as a comp.
  • Explain the difference between the cost of an upgrade and the value of an upgrade.
  • List examples of the previous (i.e. the cost of putting in a pool, vs. the value it would add.)
  • Explain loan-to-value ratio.
  • Explain what the customer needs to know and how it affects buying or selling their home.
