Last week I took the new AI course Fundamentals of Separating Real and Personal Property from Intangible Business Assets. I did not put this in the educational forum section since it applies heavily to commercial work. I believe this is the future in AI's development into business valuation. They promise courses will follow. It makes sense since many future businesses will not have real estate and the fact of 2014 changing accounting standards. You would not believe the sentiment that the future of RE appraising is doomed because of existing and coming governmental regulations. The class was heavy in theory. If you are looking for a calculator class this is not it. It is great for understanding the basics and a must for appraisers doing real estate appraisals with intangible components. I applaud the effort to unite terminology covering some of the most basic issues used in most general practices. A must do in 2012 for those who have not taken it. Further it is required for SBA loans on such properties. The Chicago class last week was the second given.
