Carbon Free Homes: Features, Benefits, Valuation
Event Description

This event will assist real estate professionals in guiding buyers and sellers to recognize the features, benefits and value of an all-electric home.

California building code is evolving from general efficiency to emissions-reductions with all-electric, and powered by clean energy. It is important for real estate professionals to understand and promote how these homes benefit both the homes and the occupants.

Comprehend carbon-free home features and their benefits to houses and occupants. Increase competency in valuation and expertise in guiding buyers and sellers.
