FREE 3HR CE: An Appraisers Guide to CMA’s 
Taught by DS Murphy and Associates
Thursday, Dec.6th from 10-1:15pm 

This class will help you develop skills, provide you with new tools to do CMAs correctly and yield more accurate numbers. Agents are trapped in the middle between being a real estate agent and being an "appraiser”. The standard tools and methods to complete a CMA are not adequate to arrive at a meaningful suggested list price but if an agent goes too far they run the risk of acting as an appraiser. We will help you define that line so you are not at risk of disciplinary action by the board but still use appraisal techniques to improve your CMAs. An Appraiser’s Guide to CMAs will assist you with identifying proper databases to be used, finding the best comparables and most importantly making the correct adjustments. While there is no secret book of adjustments appraisers use, we will share with you general adjustment parameters and benchmarks to assist in you completing far more accurate CMAs for your clients.
