So much of performing a good appraisal depends on getting detailed & accurate information from your client. In this workshop, we will re-visit & re-think how to streamline some of the basic processes in preparing for your site visit, performing your site visit, compiling your data, and contacting your sources for comps. We will examine why you should be using Microsoft Excel throughout this process and we’ll go through some very simple, basic ways that excel can be your best friend. Finally, have you ever been afraid or felt unqualified to take on an assignment? We will discuss why you can have confidence in selling yourself, performing the appraisal, and defending your report in court, all on equipment you know nothing about.
