Solving the Valuation Model Puzzle - A Deeper Understanding of the Mass Appraisal Process


PACE Course for Property Tax Assessors


When you set your values each year, does “trusting your gut” give you indigestion? Would you benefit from a mass appraisal refresher before setting your values?

This course provides the tools and insight into the modeling process so that assessors can be more comfortable with the values they set each year. This course focuses on residential modeling; however, the process and tools can be implemented for all property types. This course does not require any advanced math skills or appraisal knowledge. Topics include:

  • How to better analyze sales data
  • How to make modeling decisions based on your analysis
  • Walk through a detailed case study that is designed to give students a higher level of understanding of the modeling process
