"Coming into the class, one of the things I grappled with as a commercial appraiser is that MOST of the properties I appraise are on gross leases in which the tenants are responsible for utilities, so there is little or no incentive for landlord to complete green improvements. Low and behold, I returned from your class to an assignment of an old industrial facility that is leased to multiple tenants on full service leases. The property was recently purchased by investors who commissioned an energy audit to analyze the impact of updated LED lighting and new heating units for their 500,000-square-foot, aging industrial facility. The payback period was estimated at 2 years, 8 months and I concluded via Income-Capitalization Analysis that the cost savings would result in a value enhancement of $1,800,000. I am glad that I took your course so I could confidently analyze the impact on value of these enhancements - thanks for enhancing my tool kit!.”
- Recent student, MAI appraiser

This one-day course introduces participants to valuation methods for appraising the high-performance house. Participants learn the appraisal procedures for valuing green residential properties to assist in supporting an opinion of value. The course focuses on the valuation process in different appraisal problems encountered in appraising green properties. The valuation process is examined as it applies in each of the three approaches to value.

In-depth case studies will help participants develop their problem-solving skills in this new building technology. The problems and discussion questions are based on real-life examples provided by builders, real estate agents, and appraisers.

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
• Develop ways to assess potential contributory value of green or energy-efficient items
• Identify the GRM analysis as a tool for supporting adjustments for green buildings
• Identify the use of paired analysis to support adjustments for green buildings
• Identify the issues requiring careful verification of comparables for green buildings
• Develop the three approaches to value in context of green buildings

Note. This course is in the Valuation of Sustainable Buildings Professional Development Program. For a list of FAQs, which includes information regarding the courses you'll need to successfully complete the program, click here.

This course is approved for GBCI CE Hours by the USGBC.
