GREEN Appraisals

Green means GREEN ($$$)!  North Carolina is a leader in green building, meaning it is becoming more likely a green home may be in your future.  It is even more important, then, to be sure that your appraiser understands the inherent value that green brings. 

Is YOUR Appraiser GREEN?

A GREEN appraiser is:


  • High-performance certification programs
    • LEED-H
    • NGBS
  • Energy efficiency ratings
    • HERS


  • Researching certification records
  • Comparing and valuing energy savings
  • Comparing and valuing construction quality
  • Quantifying and documenting high-performance value

Make sure your appraiser is familiar with high-performance home building certification requirements.  Don't hesitate to ask them about their experience with green construction.

Even if you can't select your appraiser, you CAN request that your lender assign someone who has specific competency, with credentials and experience, to undertake the appraisal.  They are responsible for finding an appropriate professional to complete the order.
