Exposure and Marketing Time in Focus – A Closer Look (Recorded webinar)

Every appraiser is familiar with the terms “marketing time” and “exposure time,” but it’s not always clear why and how these are developed in everyday assignments when developing an opinion of market value of real property. Further adding some confusion into the mix is USPAP’s conditional requirement for appraisers to develop and report an opinion of ‘Reasonable Exposure Time.’ Advisory Opinion 7 states that in the analysis of marketing time, the appraiser must also research and consider anticipated changes in market conditions. WHERE does the appraiser locate information to support these two opinions? WHAT does each concept mean? HOW are the analyses done? This webinar recording covers the “where, what and how” to find the solutions to all of these questions and more.
