Good Morning Jan Green 

I'm not an appraiser, but that course looks like it would be an interesting one for appraisers.

I'm so glad that this education is being offered and is available to current Appraisers.  I was reading an article just the other day at the growing number of ways solar energy is being incorporated into homes.  Just amazing, Jan Green ...

Gene Mundt, Chicago-area Mortgage Lender - www.genemundt.com - Thanks for stopping by!  Yes, valuing solar panels is so important.  If you ever come across a home with solar panels, tell appraisers to visit the Appraisal Institute site, hover over education, and click on Green Resources at the bottom.  That page shows the video from Sandy, the instructor, Green & Energy Efficient Addendum (includes the PV Value Tool for solar), and the list by state of apprasiers who are "Green Qualified" on the subject.  You can provide a list of appraisers, not just one, and that usually appeases AMC's and Underwriters.  AMC's can create a sub panel with the names on that list for homes with green features, including solar!
