Episode #12: Green Real Estate & Property Value


What is the best way for you to position your building from a valuation standpoint? Are there strategies that designers can use to collaborate better with developers & building owners to improve the market value of high performance buildings? Because these buildings are different, owners have had to change not only how they design, build, and market, but also how they approach financing and construction processes. Otherwise you may pay for green—with certifications, capital improvements, and marketing—and not fully realize the expected market benefits.


Moving beyond the value that accrues to owners from rents, operational savings, and market recognition at sale, this guide will help building owners and developers understand the appraisal process and how green, high performance characteristics and data can be used by appraisers to help fully maximize valuation. Through educated realtors and appraisers in the commercial & residential markets, this can be achieved in most markets in the US.
