Guest Speaker:  Welcome Lawrence Golicz, Ph.D., ASA, MAI as our guest speaker. The presentation will consist of how to learn insights into how developers are placing the big box back into the retailing market with segmentation for multiple tenants. Understand the value of in depth rental profiling to gain resale market potential. Explore with the instructor the market capacity of a location from the demographic character of the community, travel time, and competing locations. In the end, the income approach provides the test of highest and best use. Yet understanding the value of the land may prove the ultimate solution against all of the measures. And without all three approaches to value considered,  how can you know? ASA profile link:

Meeting 11/28/2018

Guest Speaker:  Terry Taylor, CAE, RES, CFE, will be giving a great presentation on the valuation of the theme parks, methods, techniques, magnitude and importance of fair and equitable assessments. Theme Park Valuation explores the valuation of complex properties and provides a practical, realistic positive economic impact when establishing fair market value. The cost and income approaches to value play a significant role in establishing fair market value. The importance of up to date cost models, construction indices as well as proper classification and construction type identification is presented. Sales comparison to land valuation is considered primarily but often gives way to alternate methods such as allocation, abstraction or an anticipated use method. Theme Parks contribute to local economies and support the complementary property type valuations of hotels, restaurants, retail and other tourist sub markets. This presentation summarizes the effectiveness, responsibility and economic benefits when assessing the unique revenue generating Theme Parks, click here for bio.
