What would be a perfect topic for a CE class? How would you teach it? What would you allow and not allow in the class?

B) Bobby,

A friend that I do some teaching for, and has an appraisal school in Delaware, developed a course in "current appraisal issues". It is a very dynamic, free flowing discussion, argument, and otherwise expression of ideas, The instructor simply acts as a moderator. Each student brings a topic for discussion as well as the instructor. It has been approved in some states. Others may not like it as there is no "text book". But the format has been well received. I am thinking of doing the same in late summer or early fall in Virginia. The only rules are "no kicking, biting, scratching, throwing objest(except for the instructor who is allowed to throw things :lol: ) no name calling. Otherwise, real express of ideas will be entertained.

Some topics I've thought would be good to offer:

Residential building styles, construction techniques and terminology.

Appraising proposed construction - reviewing plans, reconciling builders costs w/Marshall & Swift, supporting land values.

Maybe good for half a day - Residential Income Approach - rental analysis and how to derive and apply GRM/GIM information, how to extract adjustments using rent loss methodology.

Maybe for the 2nd half of the day - Compliance in FRTs - an overview of Fannie Mae, FDIC and FIRREA guidelines, what they are, where they come from and why they're important.
