Residential Green Valuation Tools
by Sandra K. Adomatis, SRA
This new digital guide by a green appraisal expert is an essential resource for valuing green, or high-performance, homes. The main elements of green homes—site, water and energy efficiency, indoor air quality, materials, and operations and maintenance—are described, and case studies are presented to illustrate common scenarios and problems that arise in valuing high-performance homes. Detailed instructions are provided on properly completing the Appraisal Institute’s Residential Green and Energy Efficient Addendum form for appraisal reports. The valuation of Energy Star homes, passive solar houses, solar photovoltaic systems, and net-zero energy homes is also explored.
