Advanced Land Valuation: Sound Solutions to Perplexing Problems

Instructor and Developer: Gary DeWeese, MAI

It’s back!  Don’t miss this timely 7-hour synchronous seminar presented by the developer who literally wrote the book – Land Valuation: Real Solutions to Complex Issues.  While the text is not required for the seminar, it is a great addition to your appraisal library.  Order your copy today!


  • Use 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

Note:  Familiarity with DCF concepts and general valuation approaches, specifically yield capitalization.  Basic working knowledge of Excel helpful.
