Mass Appraisal Using SPSS (Laptop Required) – Geoff Lycas – 15 CEH **Mon & Tues**

Mass Appraisal Models Using SPSS – 2 day 15 CE hours

NOTE: Laptop computer required with SPSS version 19 or higher

Limited class size:  18 Students Maximum


This two-day workshop is designed for appraisers and modelers alike for creating assessment values based on a group of residential market sales. This hands-on workshop places students in a simulation where, using SPSS, they step through a proven case study while understanding how property adjustments are developed and predicted residential property values are created.

Using actual data, students determine time adjustments and use multiple regression to calculate and understand the major adjustments of a property. After exploring the data, calculating a monthly time adjustment, and applying an iterative regression method, the students will learn and develop both an additive and multiplicative model and compare the results, identifying the key differences and benefits.

As a result, the students will develop confidence in explaining assessment valuation and the knowledge to apply these mass appraisal methods back in the office.
