CRE Appraisals: Reviewing & Interpreting OnDemand with Live Streaming Webinar

Attend the CRE Lending: Cash Flow, Cap Rates and Other Factors Seminar from the convenience of your own office or home via Live Streaming Video as it happens on Thursday, June 24th (9:00 am ‘€“ 4:00 pm Central Time), or at your own convenience with 6 months of OnDemand playback.

An important part of the commercial real estate (CRE) lending process is the review and interpretation of the property appraisal. This program covers the major issues of the entire appraisal process, including a brief review of selecting and engaging a qualified appraiser, but focuses more on reviewing the report for integration into the overall credit analysis. Fundamental principles and features of commercial appraisals are covered, as well as the primary analytical techniques such as net operating income (NOI) for basic, income-producing properties. This class will also provide an overview of the 2010 Interagency Appraisal and Evaluation Guidelines and the 2018 Frequently Asked Questions on the Appraisal Regulations and the Interagency Appraisal and Evaluation Guidelines, with tips for integrating the Guidelines and FAQs into your existing policies, plus other practical issues that community banks face, including a brief look at high volatility CRE (HVCRE).

CRE Appraisals: Reviewing & Interpreting Seminar OnDemand with Live Streaming has been submitted to ABA Professional Certifications for CE credit review and is pending approval. Once we receive notification of the credit approval, we will notify attendees.
