Introduction to Commercial Greenhouse Appraisal

Target Audience: Appraisers

Commercial Greenhouse facilities are scattered throughout the United States, with clustering of facilities in geographically superior locations. They range in size from less than one acre under roof to hundreds of acres with production ranging from fresh vegetables and herbs to bedding plants and cut flowers. This course provides an introduction to the forces of value for these industries. Students will learn about the components of greenhouse facilities with significant photographic documentation. All three approaches to value will be discussed and demonstrated. Sales analysis and depreciation analysis will also be discussed and demonstrated. The course will include a brief review of the history of the industry over time, the top 100 growers in the country, key value factors, geographical design differences, and more. This course is meant to provide a look at one of agriculture’s more interesting industries. This is an introductory seminar, so even if you have no experience in this use-type, you are sure to come away with something new in your tool box.
