Next, students are exposed to the real estate appraisal process and valuation techniques and tools, including highest and best use analysis and the income, sales comparison, and cost approaches to value. The course highlights the function of appraisal within the broader real estate market and emphasizes the behavioral context in which property valuations are embedded.
