RESTalk: Energy Efficiency Has Value

CodeWatcher RESNET podcast

A new podcast is available: “Energy Efficiency Has Value When You Can Measure It, Market It, And Sell For It!”

How do you get folks to understand the increased value in high performing, energy efficient homes?  Sandra Adomatis of Adomatis Appraisal Service is making it her mission to answer that question by helping the U.S. real estate industry appreciate that you need to measure it, market it, and sell for it.

Fresh off her presentation at the 2018 Appraisal Institute Conference, listen as Sandra talks about the importance of the partnership between RESNET and the Appraisal Institute to launch the new online Appraisal Portal, to help residential appraisers compare the value of energy efficient homes.  We discuss the inner workings of the appraisal process and the structure and purposes of the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).

Sandra also describes her career journey which lead her to the point of being a highly sought-after nationally-called upon speaker earning her the title of the “Green Queen”.

Sandy freely shares her knowledge and many relevant resources on her website at

She is the consummate networker and spearheaded the creation of the Appraisal Institute’s Residential Green and Energy Efficient Addendum.

One key resource she recommends is the Appraisal Institute’s:Appraised Value and Energy Efficiency: Getting it Right (for buyers and lenders).
