Seeing Green: Valbridge Analyzes Energy Costs, Impacts on Building Value

Facilities that are more energy efficient have the potential to produce lower operating costs for owners, investors and occupiers, with more savings or net income at the end of the day. Valbridge can analyze the financial impacts of building energy performance across different property types. 

The Appraisal Institute and the Institute for Market Transformation prepared a report, “Recognition of Energy Costs and Energy Performance in Real Property Valuation.”

The report provides insight on how appraisers can evaluate building characteristics, including improvement costs and income and expenses, in addition to property comps and market information, to value so-called green features and green buildings. You can download the report here.
