“It’s been a challenge making the appropriate adjustments in appraisals for "green" and energy efficiency features. Getting the Realtors and Lender's on board is equally important.  The lender's want to see market evidence of a reaction (to a feature) when positive contributory value is included in an appraisal. Ironing out a system of testing, labeling and then marketing homes in such a way gives us most of the things we need to defend these adjustments.“— Rick Bertram, Appraiser and owner of Bertram Realty Advisors Corp
