Appraisers and Realtors will develop expertise in types of homes already embraced and banked on by many of their homeowner clients. In valuation or guiding customers in buying and selling, the proficiency gained in this course will be a professional differentiator that strengthens their business. CA's building codes and energy policy impact the way homes are built and powered. Homes of the future will be carbon-free! Energy-efficient, all-electric, powered by clean energy. How will the new requirements impact their market value and the way these homes are represented in sales listings? Carbon-free homes are typically more healthy, safe, comfortable, durable, and cost less to own. Their high performance and emissions-reducing efficiency elevate the quality of life for occupants plus deliver multiple societal benefits towards cleaner air and water.
