Davis agents, this is late notice but the Davis MLS meeting on Friday, December 12th will have a guest speaker to talk about the possible Green Initiative in Davis. The city is considering requiring "green" updates to be completed on buildings at the time of sale. This is something that is likely to slow down the buying process and would add unecessary expense to the sale of a Davis home. Details of the program are still being formulated, the City of Berkeley has recently put in a Green initiative and there are reliable stories that this is delaying loan approvals and causing problems in getting escrows closed.
I am all for environmental upgrades but not forced at the time of sale. If the city pushes for this, let's try and help them come up with some better alternatives.
The meeting starts at 8:30 am at the OddFellows Hall on 2nd Second Street.
UPDATE: I wrote about the meeting here: Davis considers green resale ordinance
