As governmental mandates continue to filter down to all local communities, and buyers, sellers, developers and financiers of real estate market assess the importance of energy efficiency and sustainability, it is imperative that appraisers become familiar with the concepts of green building. This course provides practical application of techniques available to commercial appraisers. 

Beginning with a brief review of green principles and concepts, the course focuses on in-depth commercial case studies that explore techniques for valuation. Participants should increase their knowledge of commercial green projects and become familiar with numerous resources to help them document the appraisal process.

Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to:

    • Identify and analyze the differences in green buildings and practices and traditional construction and how these differences may or may not impact asset value.
    • Identify how the community, market, and highest and best use analysis of a green building may be conducted and reported.
    • Identify how the property description and analysis portion of the appraisal assignment of a green building may be conducted and reported.
    • Identify the life cycle cost analysis as a tool for the comparison of building performance standards and specifications. (Develop ways to assess potential contributory value of green or energy efficient or other related components, features or systems.)
    • Apply the three approaches to value in context of green buildings.
