Home Measurement Specialist (HMS)

Southern Pines, N.C. February 28, 2012. Bill Sahadi of Fore Properties has been awarded the Home Measurement Specialist Certification (HMS®) by the Institute of Housing Technologies, LLC. Sahadi joins a select group of agents and appraisers who hold this highly sought-after certification, the only advanced real estate program geared towards the power of size in the home comparison and valuation processes. Sahadi achieved this prestigious designation after completing 18 hours of course work and extensive examinations. The courses were created in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of industry experts from across the country; ensuring designees gain comprehensive knowledge of the ANSI® measurement standard, the overall impact of square footage and “price-per-square-foot” on home prices, and its influence on market timing strategies. HMS® designees are trained and committed to delivering buyers and sellers true “value added services,” helping buyers and sellers obtain a fair value in today’s competitive marketplace.


“In today’s marketplace a broker has got to be able to quantify as much information as possible for the seller and buyer. Exact square footage is the first benchmark of quantifiable information that is utilized in the appraisal process.  That is why a prelisting appraisal is so important in today’s market. There is nothing more disheartening than to receive a contract on a home and have the appraisal come in short of value, when that heartache could have easily been avoided upfront.  A prelisting appraisal is also great insurance if the contract appraisal, done by an out of town appraiser, comes up short due to lack of familiarity with our area.


Working with Hamp Thomas of the Institute of Housing Technologies as a prelisting appraiser and pricing consultant, gives our sellers a distinct advantage in today’s market.  At the end of the day our primary role is to give the most reliable information, manage expectations and minimize surprises,” Sahadi concludes.


HMS® offers unique strategies, tools, sites and services of particular value to top real estate professionals and their clients. In today’s unique real estate environment, it has never been more important to understand the home valuation process. The Council of Certified Measurement Specialists is a real estate information research organization, offering numerous books, videos, and continuing education courses in real estate and appraisal. The Institute’s goal is to improve the real estate information network  and help to stabilize home valuation and mortgage security.
