Advanced Land Valuation: Sound Solutions to Perplexing Problems

Developer and Instructor: Gary DeWeese, MAI

  • By examining unusual and complex land valuation assignments, this seminar takes concepts covered in the Appraisal Institute curriculum to the next level. In addition to lecture, discussion, and Q&A, sample case studies will demonstrate, primarily in Excel, conceptual and practical applications that participants will be able to incorporate into their day-to-day work. The seminar will suggest strategies for performing these assignments.
  • Objectives
    • Utilize a land residual technique based on a DCF analysis to value land intended for two alternative competing uses (“for rental” apartments versus “for-sale” condominiums).
    • Determine the highest and best use of land when the legally permissible, physically possible, and financially feasible use(s) are very uncertain and cannot be determined using traditional methodologies.
    • Determine land value when the value is a function of a curvilinear relationship with its appropriate unit of comparison (in this case, the value of land suitable for apartment development as a function of density).
    • Determine land rent using a nontraditional unit of comparison (in this case land rental value based on average traffic volume).
    • Estimate the value of land subject to a long-term ground lease with multiple forms of financial benefits accruing to the landowner.
