About the Seminar

This seminar will explore the different sources and methods for verifying comparable data. We will review verification as it relates to USPAP, Yellow Book, the SC Real Estate Appraisers Act, the SC Department of Transportation and many other client specific requirements. Many clients have expectations on how market data should be reported and analyzed, and specific requirements for verifications. Understanding the appropriate requirements will affect our scope of work and the confidence that intended users have in our appraisals.
All appraisers would agree that accurate data is critical for our success. It is vitally important to our analysis, our value opinions and ultimately our profession. Good data can lead to solid analysis and valuations, but bad data can only lead in one direction. Verifying the data appropriately is key to understanding the transactions and comparing them to our subject properties. The abundance of third party market data has enabled many non-appraisers to wreak havoc on the valuation process. Since the State of South Carolina is an open records state, anyone, or anything (software bot), can document sale prices and sale dates. However, understanding transactions requires so much more than these few data points, including many items that could completely negate a transaction from even being comparable. In our current age of big data, the idea of statistically analyzing lots of data, instead of good data, is becoming popular. Less can be more, especially when it comes to the difference between credible and misleading.
