September 23, 2013 - Post No. 29 - For those who started with me over at the CES website, thanks for following me to AppraisalBuzz.
The Appraisal Institute just released the 14th edition of the primary text for the real estate appraisal industry. In keeping with the times, the book is now available as a searchable PDF file.
The book has expanded discussion on the topics of:
Market Analysis and Highest & Best Use
Capital and Real Estate Market Trends
Also, the following chapters have been enhanced significantly:
In addition, a new chapter has been added on the topic of Scope of Work.
The USPAP requires us to keep up with industry sources. I encourage everyone to purchase the book asap. Although I am a contributor to the book, I do not get any royalties:( I simply think it is good to always have the most current texts.
Happy National Checkers Day,
