For an overview of the March 11, 2014, roundtable at the White House Conference Center, take a look at my blog. http://adomatis.wordpress.com/2014/03/16/green-mortgage-appraisal-r...
The most interesting news is the Appraisal Institute’s opening the Green Appraiser Registry to all students that have successfully completed the green valuation courses and passed the exams for the Valuation of Sustainable Buildings Professional Development Program. Thanks to share informative Blog.
Would love see your slides, but the AI site requires login. Can you post them here or email to me at email@example.com? Thx.
Thanks for sharing Sandy! As the AI industry guru in green, it's always wise to read your posts!
The HES score is an easy model for folks to DIY on energy improvements, but I still stick to offering Energy Audits to my clients so they get the professional opinion of those in the field with 3rd party results based on the footprint of their home. They love it during the inspection period as buyers and appreciate that extra layer of information.
I look forward to hearing more as updates occur on valuation of green features. That is the most difficult link in the chain, next to the uneducated and uniformed realtors and lenders in the industry.
I'll be starting work to streamline the 60+ features we have on our MLS that my committee added in 2009 and 2014. Since the National Association of Realtors and the Green Resource Council (Laura's work) has mainstreamed definitions for all MLS' to following, that should provide the right platform for all MLS's to be the same, except of course where some features relate to climate zones. We'll be starting work on this mainstream effort soon in Phoenix. Efforts like these take a lot of volunteer hours!
Look forward to seeing you in Phoenix 8/27 & 28 as our instructor for our 2 Day Solar Course for Appraisers, Sandy. You rock!
