Crowe highlights a housing shortfall of one to two million households. This pent up demand will soon need to be relieved as families change and doubling up households diminish. Third, house prices are returning to normal. Nationally, prices have returned to a traditional 3.2 house price-to income ratio that was average during the 1990s before the housing boom and peaked at 4.7 in 2006. Locally the ratio peaked at 3.1 and is now at 2.3, a notch below the 2.4 average in the 1990s. The HBA sponsored Crowe’s appearance at the Sustainable Housing Conference sponsored by HUD and the Builders’ Development Corporation.

Industry News Fed Chairman to Address Open Board Session at IBS NAHB members who attend the 2012 International Builders’ Show will have an outstanding opportunity to hear Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke deliver remarks during a special session of our Board of Directors meeting on February 10.  Testifying before the Joint Economic Committee in Congress this week, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke  specifically acknowledged housing’s role in economic recovery and job growth and the challenges facing builders in today’s market. “The housing sector has been a significant driver of recovery from most recessions in the United States since World War II,” he said. “This time, however, a number of factors -- including the overhang of distressed and foreclosed properties, tight credit conditions for builders and potential home buyers, and the large number of ‘underwater’ mortgages -- have left the rate of new home construction at only about onethird of its average level in recent decades.” Clearly, Chairman Bernanke understands the contributions that builders can make to the economy

when given the chance, and throughout his tenure he has been willing to meet with our leadership on a regular basis to receive updates from us on the state of the housing market and discuss our concerns. Building on this solid relationship, we are pleased to announce that the chairman recently accepted an invitation to speak at our Board of Directors meeting to be held during the International Builders’ Show in Orlando this coming February. Registered IBS attendees will be welcomed as part of the audience on a first-come, first served basis when the chairman speaks on Feb.10. This is an opportunity to hear from a man who is at the center of our nation›s efforts to mount an economic recovery -- and a true honor for NAHB members, as such an appearance is relatively rare for the chairman. Further details on the time and location of Mr. Bernanke’s address will be available closer to the event, and we will be sure to pass on that information as soon as possible. In the meantime, sign up to attend IBS this February at www.BuildersShow.com!

Gaining Fair Green Home Appraisals Makes Headway

Representing major headway in gaining energy- and water-saving techniques, greater fair appraisals for green homes, the Appraisal durability and other green aspects from Institute has introduced a new form to help homes that do not. These features contribute to the value of a analyze values of energy-efficient home home because they can dramatically reduce features. The first of its kind, the three-page monthly utility costs, which represent a Residential Green and Energy Efficient significant expense for home owners. The new addendum was designed to enable Appraisal Addendum is intended to be used appraisers to better identify and classify by appraisers and is designed to be attached as an optional addendum to Fannie Mae green features, with a goal of establishing the Form 1004, the appraisal industry’s most most accurate assessment of the value of the homes that have them. widely used form for lending purposes. Over time and as it becomes broadly “This addendum is another example of how the Appraisal Institute is at the forefront used, the addendum is also expected to help of real estate valuation,” said Appraisal establish the incremental value of specific Institute President Joseph C. Magdziarz. features on a comparative basis.    “We hope this new form will be a big step “It will help the industry standardize the way residential energy-efficient features are toward establishing more accurate home valuations that recognize all of the key analyzed and reported.” NAHB has long advocated a better system features of a home,” said Kevin Morrow, for taking into account green home features senior program manager of green building _7.5x3.33_Layout 2/9/11 9:58 PM Page 1 programs at NAHB. during the home appraisal1process. “Green homes can offer significant cost Historically, there has not been a consistent HMA_KC_7.5x3.33_Layout 1 2/9/11 9:58 PM toPage savings home 1owners over a comparable process in place for the lending community home built to code, so we are pleased to differentiate between homes that feature

that this new form will finally provide a vehicle to demonstrate some of these key differentiators,” he said. The form allows users to report on energyefficient items such as windows, appliances and insulation; to list any applicable energy ratings; and to note the home’s average utility costs—demonstrating any savings to the home owner. Green features are also among the items included in the new form, most notably, in a section that allows users to indicate if the home has been certified to the National Green Building Standard. Solar panels and site details such as house orientation and landscaping are also evaluated, in addition to the property’s walkability and proximity to public transportation. The form also provides space to indicate if the home has qualified for any federal, state or local incentives. “We are thrilled that certification to the National Green Building Standard is finally getting the recognition it deserves in the appraisal process,” said Michael Luzier,

“For a long time we’ve known that our third-party green certification conveys tangible, financial benefits to a home and its occupants,” Luzier said. “Specifically referencing this type of national certification in the valuation process finally provides a way for appraisers to recognize and benchmark that value. “We also appreciate the fact that energy efficiency upgrades and certifications are captured separately from whole-house green certifications. Energy efficiency is only one portion of the green equation, so to get the true value of a green home necessitates it being appraised beyond just its energy attributes.” Home owners, sellers, buyers, refinancers and realty agents don’t have to wait for an appraiser to use the new form. They can download it at no cost and ask that it be made part of the appraisal submitted to the lender. This will also help ensure that the appraiser uses the best and most accurate Continued on page 7
