RISMEDIA, June 2, 2008-The Appraisal Institute introduced its newest seminar, An Introduction to Valuing Green Buildings, which will premiere June 24, 2008, in Austin, Texas. Designed for appraisers, developers, investors and other real estate professionals, this timely seminar will explore the history and progress of the “green” building movement in the United States as well as how buildings held for investment relate to the larger green building universe. The analysis and valuation of green building for investment purposes are also examined.

“Green building practices are evolving into the standard benchmark for development in commercial and residential marketplaces,” explains R. Wayne Pugh, MAI, president of the Appraisal Institute. “This seminar provides real estate professionals across the board with the tools to understand the relevance, potential investment risks and long-term benefits of green building practices.”

Created as a 7-hour seminar, An Introduction to Valuing Green Buildings addresses sustainable building practices from the ground up – from design principles to cost-benefit analysis to implications for the valuation process. Also included for review are case studies of recently completed green buildings, which illustrate the real-world application of covered concepts.

“Participants in this seminar will receive up-to-date information relating to the science and expertise being applied in contemporary building practices,” notes Pugh. “Sustainable building is not the practice of the future, it’s the practice that’s already here.”
