21 Oct 2018 - 23 Oct 2018, Washington, D.C.
The valuation of heterogeneous, thinly-traded assets such as real property interests presents challenges for lenders, insurers, assessors, and others for whom value is a key element in decision making.
To convene expertise and promote thoughtful scholarship in the Washington, DC area, Fannie Mae, in conjunction with The Appraisal Foundation, the University of Connecticut, School of Business, and the Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics announces a Call for Papers and Participation in a conference on topics related to the valuation of real estate.
TOPICS: Topics may include:
- Real estate appraisal
