With new tighter regulations created by the IRS concerning donation appraisals, and a more informed public demanding educated appraisal experts, consumers are turning more and more to appraisers who are trained and credentialed by professional associations. The International Society of Appraisers, a leader in the personal property appraisal profession, has provided the public with qualified appraisers for over twenty years.
The ISA Core Course in Appraisal Studies covers appraisal theory and principles, report writing standards, professional ethics, how to accurately describe property, how to conduct market and value research and analysis, how to start your own appraisal business, and concludes with how to write an actual appraisal in a hands-on workshop. Samples of complete appraisals are given to students, along with appraisal checklists covering the required elements for standard appraisal types. These assist in developing your own appraisal style and tailoring checklists to your specialty field.
This investment in your professional excellence will help build your business and expand your client services. For more information, contact ISA today at email@example.com or visit us at www.isa-appraisers.org .
