Appraising Condos Co-ops, and PUDs
Larry Wright, MAI, SRA, AI-GRS
Wednesday, November 30, 2022  - REGISTER HERE

Single-family attached homes like condominiums, cooperatives, and townhouses are the primary housing option in many urban markets. New construction detached houses are typically in subdivisions and master plan communities. Age-restricted communities are popular with retirees. Most of these developments have one thing in common: they all have associations which are governed by condominium declarations, bylaws, and/or covenants, conditions, and restrictions which affect the bundle of rights. The first part of this seminar builds the foundation for the discussion on appraising residential properties in community associations. You'll learn why it is necessary to know how to identify the property type, why it is important to have a full understanding of the governing documents, why you need to understand where it is located, and why it's critical to analyze the market. From there, you'll examine the four specific groups of community organizations: condominiums, cooperatives, planned unit developments (PUDs), and condominium hotels.

Return to your office with greater confidence when making scope of work decisions.
