What's New!

The IAAO Library has released a new video on "Geographic Weighted Regression in Automated Valuation Models" with Paul Bidanset of the IAAO Research Subcommittee reviewing a chapter he wrote on Geographic Weighted Regression for Advances in Automated Valuation Modeling: AVM after the Non-Agency Mortgage Crisis by Maurizio d'Amato and Tom Kauko. The video is available on the IAAO website and the book is available to be checked out as an eBook from the IAAO Library.

A copy of the Big Box Task Force draft document is now available for exposure and comment in the Exposure Drafts page. In addition, several proposed amendment changes to the IAAO Bylaws are also now available on the Exposure Drafts page.

On a related note,  IAAO released the Big-Box Retail Store Valuation Subject Guide to help assessors become familiar with this new trend and to understand the valuation methods open to them, and IAAO is looking for assistance in developing a GIS for Assessment Professionals book.

The guide on intangibles developed by the IAAO Special Committee on Intangibles is now available for download. See the Technical Standards page for more on Understanding Intangible Assets and Real Estate: A Guide for Real Property Valuation Professionals.

Information for members interested in running for the IAAO Executive Board has been posted. Information must be submitted by July 1 for the elections, which will take place in November.

The library recently released two new subject guides. The Sharing Economy Subject Guide provides links to articles, reports and websites with information on this new part of the economy. On landfills, there are two different ways to look at the valuation of landfills and the subject guide provides sources on both the appraisal of the landfill itself and also the impact on the surrounding properties.
