NEW! Green valuation book released

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

The much anticipated Appraisal Institute textbook The Valuation of Green Commercial Real Estate, co-authored by Runde & Partners principals Timothy P. Runde, MAI, LEED AP and Stacey L. Thoyre, WELL AP, LEED Green Associate, is now available here. It is the first real estate valuation textbook devoted solely to the valuation of green commercial buildings, conventional buildings with green features, and commercial properties of all types impacted by sustainability. Three years in development, this comprehensive resource is a must-have for any commercial appraiser practicing in today’s markets where sustainability and green building influences are ubiquitous, yet the valuation impact may not be clear.  The text uses numerous case study examples to illustrate the application of existing valuation theory to address potential green building value impacts in a variety of valuation contexts.  Special features include the Green Feature Gallery, which provides the reader with close-up photographs of common green features to help them expand their visual data base, complete with descriptions of the how, why and potential value implication.  This text will be an invaluable resource to all valuation professionals, as well as investors, asset managers, property managers, brokers, lawyers, architects, designers and engineers.
