Green, Energy Efficient Homes: The Opportunity for Real Estate Professionals
Tuesday, Feb. 25 | 11 am - 1 pm 
 
Recent surveys show that more homeowners want a green home. Green homes are healthier and reduce energy costs and maintenance. Are you prepared to assist these homebuyers?
 
Join us to find out how you can build your business with Energy Upgrade California and learn more about:
  • The value of green homes: Using energy efficiency retrofits to your advantage
  • Energy Upgrade California: Making rebates and incentives work for your clients
  • Marketing resources: Signage and easy to use surveys
  • Financing opportunities: Helping your clients find an affordable green home

Expand Your Knowledge—And Your Client Base
You’ll learn how to increase your knowledge to act as a trusted advisor to your clients on green real estate. That means helping them find a fixer-upper and transforming it into a more comfortable home with lower utility and maintenance costs, or making the right upgrades before a sale to boost its value. Learn how to help them navigate the cash rebates, incentives, green certifications, and green financing necessary to achieve their goals. Then learn how to market green and grow your business to attract new customers.
 
Demand for Green Homes Is Growing
Green real estate is not a fad, but a fundamental change in the market. Nearly 40% of home buyers consider high-efficiency heating and cooling features to be “very important,” and two-thirds of state governments have currently implemented green building policies. Furthermore, a 2012 study found that green certified homes – with labels such as Energy Star or GreenPoint Rated – sold for up to 9% more than homes without a green label.
 
People have different motivations for going green: some want to reduce their impact on the environment, others want to save money, reduce waste, or create a healthier home for their children. Our trainings will provide you with the education to support your clients’ green endeavors no matter their objective.
