Earth Advantage Broker
- This event has passed.
The Earth Advantage Broker accreditation course provides real estate professionals with a competitive edge in communicating features and benefits for green and energy efficient home opportunities in their market.
Are you prepared to meet increasing homebuyer demand for healthy, comfortable, efficient homes?
A nationwide study* in 2016 found that 81% of people who expect to buy a new home in the next two years say higher energy efficiency would cause them to choose one over another AND that they would be willing to pay more for a healthier home. Plus, homes listed for sale in the City of Portland are required to obtain a Home Energy Score and roughly 45% of all new homes built in Portland (57% in Beaverton) have earned Earth Advantage certification and/or EPS® from Energy Trust of Oregon.
The big picture shows a dramatic rise in the popularity of green and energy efficient homes that provide a healthier living environment and greater energy, water, and resource efficiency. Stay on top of your game by becoming an Earth Advantage Broker so you can continue to exceed homebuyer expectations with savvy recommendations.
