The Broker Price Opinion (BPO) Resource Certification is designed to help residential real estate agents and brokers enhance their skills in creating BPOs, reducing risk, and applying alternative valuation techniques. Evaluating properties depends more than ever on professional expertise and competence, the best use of technology, and a commitment to approach the valuation assignment from all perspectives.
The one-day core course: "BPOs: The Agent's Role in Property Valuation," explores the multiple uses of BPOs, how they can and cannot be used, and how to filter and select comparables. Upon completion of the core course, members will need to take a free webinar and pay a one-time fee to earn the BPOR certification. Members who earn the BPOR certification will be eligible to receive BPO orders.
