The future for residential and commercial properties shows that all lights are “green” for energy-efficient valuation. As green and energy-efficient buildings become increasingly mainstream, appraisers who are regarded as knowledgeable and experienced in this area of practice may find new opportunities for assignments.
The majority of construction firms of single-family homes responding to a McGraw-Hill Construction survey reported that more than 15 percent of their projects are green, with that number expected to rise to 84 percent by 2018. Green also is growing in commercial construction with 40 to 48 percent of nonresidential construction being classified in that category.
The Appraisal Institute is providing the tools appraisers need to hone their skills, to be recognized as leaders in green valuation and to provide clients with the most current information available.
