In the real estate market, decisions about home purchase, construction, and upgrades suffer from lack of data and knowledge about energy efficiency or, worse, don’t consider energy efficiency at all. How do we change this? This session will point the way. Attendees will learn to be proactive – to prepare clients and lenders for the mortgage application and appraisal process and make energy efficiency count. We’ll share ways to be an advocate of sustainable building practices with local real estate professionals. And we’ll learn about real estate market transformation efforts in the northeast and nationally that you can use to improve the real estate market in your local community.
