Residential Green Valuation Tools

Appraisal Institute just announced its latest new book on valuing residential high performance properties.

Residential Green Valuation Tools explores the six features that make a home green—proper siting, water and energy efficiency, indoor air quality, materials, and operations and maintenance—and provides:

  • A comprehensive overview of the valuation of high-performance homes
  • Case studies illustrating common scenarios and valuation problems
  • Detailed instructions on how to complete the AI Residential Green and Energy Efficient Addendum form
  • Tips for appraising Energy Star homes, passive solar houses, solar photovoltaic systems, and net-zero energy homes

The book comes in print or digital format and can be ordered at:  http://www.appraisalinstitute.org/residential-green-valuation-tools...

The book is written for appraisers, real estate agents, builders, homeowners, lenders, and raters.  All will find useful information that will be invaluable in the high performance transaction.
