Description: As the expression goes, the value of real estate is in the eye of the beholder. Ultimately, the value is whatever the market is willing to pay. While income producing properties, particularly with credit worthy tenants, may be fairly routine to value based on current rate of return demands in the market, non-income producing properties may be more speculative.


For example, even the most seasoned appraiser may struggle with finding comparative sales for a property. A landowner might see their property value go up exponentially “if only” the city council will allow for a zoning variance. Many an owner believes their property is in the “path of progress”, but when? Is it reasonable to value a property “as stabilized” if it is only forty percent leased? These are the types of questions we will consider.

This webinar is delivered in Plain English, understandable to you even if you do not have a background in the subject. It brings you into an engaging, even sometimes humorous, conversation designed to entertain as it teaches. And, it is specifically designed to be viewed as a stand-alone webinar, meaning that you do not have to view the other webinars in the series to get a lot out of it.

It does not take a complex corporate chapter 11 bankruptcy to encounter serious ethical issues that must be confronted in a case. In fact, the relative simplicity of a real estate-based bankruptcy will shine the light on all of the main case details, bringing increased scrutiny to all of the debtor’s actions and decisions. Real estate-based bankruptcies are some of the most common matters filed. As an attorney, you are your client’s advocate and need to navigate the waters to provide effective counsel while playing within rules. In this series we tackle some common ethical scenarios that present themselves in real estate-focused bankruptcies frequently, including matters related to valuing assets, insider lease agreements, and a Single Asset Real Estate (SARE) cases. At the end you will be better equipped to answer questions like Is your client being astute or asinine? This this scheme clever or cagey? Under the rules of bankruptcy, is an inside arrangement shady or shrewd?

As with every Financial Poise webinar, each episode in this series is delivered in Plain English understandable to investors, business owners, and executives without much background in these areas, yet is also valuable to attorneys, accountants, and other seasoned professionals. And, as with every Financial Poise webinar, each episode brings you into engaging, sometimes humorous, conversations designed to entertain as it teaches. Each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, so that participants will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all episodes.
