    In this complimentary webinar for CRB and SRS designees, we'll provide tips for reading and understanding appraisal reports, how the new ANSI measurement system will affect appraisals, how markets change, and how that affects value.

    It's the moment where both sides of the transaction hold their breath – the appraisal. Due to an overheated market, many customers have been paying over the list price and, sometimes, over what appraised value will be. Agents must know how to price the property to the current market and react if there's an issue. In this complimentary webinar for CRB and SRS designees, we'll provide tips for reading and understanding appraisal reports, how the new ANSI measurement system will affect appraisals, how markets change, and how that affects value. We'll also provide some suggestions for managing clients' expectations, how to assist a buyer in requesting a reconsideration of value and working with appraisers.
