NEW! Course: Practical Applications in Appraising Commercial Green Properties
7 - 8
Location: Brandman University, Fairfield

Instructor(s): Tim Runde, MAI, LEED AP

This NEW two-day course introduces participants to a broad range of valuation problems encountered when appraising green commercial buildings, conventional buildings with green features, and conventional buildings in today’s markets that are increasingly influenced by sustainability and green building. Based on the Appraisal Institute’s new publication, The Valuation of Green Commercial Real Estate, participants will use real-world case study examples from a variety of property types to learn and apply credible valuation techniques for analyzing and reporting the degree to which green building and sustainability affect property value.

Structured around the application of the three approaches to value, participants will develop valuable insight and hands-on experience applying cost and income-based adjustments when sales data is lacking, identifying and analyzing rent and marketability premiums, evaluating operating cost impacts, and assessing risk effects. In addition, participants will learn how green building and sustainability affect scope of work development and highest and best use analysis for both green and conventional properties. The course also familiarizes participants with emerging topics such as net zero energy, distributed generation, wellness-based design and resilience.

Note. This course is in the Valuation of Sustainable Buildings Professional Development Program. For a list of FAQs, which includes information regarding the courses you'll need to successfully complete the program, click here.
