Energy Efficiency and Green Building for Appraisers

Apr 05 2013


ASU, the NCEEA, and BrightPath Education Services have teamed up to bring this exceptional class to NC Appraisers. High performance building, A.K.A. Energy Efficient and Green Certified construction, makes up almost 40% of the building stock currently constructed in NC. This, combined with NC's recent Energy Code improvements is proof that the NC market is transforming and the time is NOW to develop an understanding of these principles.

The purpose of this class is to provide timely, accurate, and detailed information on certified energy efficient and green built structures to NC real estate appraisers. With green building and energy efficiency becoming an important part of various real estate markets, it is important that appraisers develop competency in these areas so that they can confidently and credibly determine the characteristics and components of these unique products. 

The class addresses market statistics, market trends, market participant reactions, building industry advancements, HERS ratings, energy ratings, and the “Green MLS.”  Significant time will be spent on the Appraisal Institute’s “Residential Green and Energy Efficient Addendum” to be used with the Uniform Residential Appraisal Report (URAR-Form 1004) and how to find the information needed to complete this addendum accurately.

Cost: $270*
Location: Appalachian State University Campus, room to be announced
Time: 9:00am-5:00pm

Continuing Education Credits Offered: 7 hour appraisal
All attendees will receive a Certificate of Completion
