Description
A recent study conducted by GreenWorks Realty showed that green homes in King County sold more quickly and for more money during 2007-08 than their non-green counterparts. No wonder then that there's a surge in new homes being built according to sustainability principles. NSCC's Green Real Estate Certificate program can show you how it's done. The 16½ credit program can be completed in as little as 2 quarters and includes some continuing education fulfillment and qualification as a Built Green Certified Professional. The 7 courses that make-up the program cover topics such as green building materials, energy efficient design and development, healthy buildings, indoor air quality, marketing and more. A wide variety of real estate professionals including sales people, appraisers, developers, architects, builders, investors and residential/commercial buyers and sellers will find this program valuable.
Learning Outcomes
Describe current and emerging issues in the Green/Sustainable Real Estate industry.
Demonstrate an understanding of the principles and procedures involved in developing Green Real Estate from instigation to completion.
Disclose examples of energy-efficient, water-efficient, environment-friendly and safe/healthy products and practices.
