I just completed my Sustainability Training for Accredited Real Estate Professionals (S.T.A.R) class in Reno this week. There was lots of good information about saving energy, sustainability, and marketing towards people interested in energy efficiency, sustainability, and their impact on the planet. This includes the 80% of buyer that are concerned about utility bills. Less than 20% of people are not concerned with conservation. So why aren’t more agents and lenders marketing toward those buyers?
This class is open to Agents, Lenders, Appraiser, and Home Inspectors. It also is a source of CEU’s for real estate agents. The best part about is that it’s FREE. It is two days and they provide some snacks in the morning and lunch.
Every agent should get more information about Green Features and Energy Efficiency. If you have ever met me I probably spoke to you about some of the benefits energy retrofits. Currently buyers are more in tune with having a home that saves energy, is comfortable, and healthier. Are agents just as in tune? These issues are addressed as part of a proper energy retrofit. These retrofits can be included at the time of purchase of a home utilizing and Energy Efficient Mortgage. These are so simple and easy to do it’s amazing that everyone buying an older home isn’t taking advantage of these loans.
As an Energy Auditor and Home Inspector I cannot emphasize how much people love their home once they have been involved with the program.
