New Construction & Elements of Green Design for Realtors
February 4, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm$55
Many people think that new construction is the “safest” type of home to buy. After all, they are brand new, built to code, and come with a warranty. So why would anyone need a home inspection?
In this class, we’ll examine the economics of the home construction industry in order to better understand the pros and cons of new construction. We’ll also explore some of the new features and systems currently used in new construction – from bamboo to slab countertops – and see examples of common problems that can arise.
On the pro side, we’ll also examine how and why modern buildings use less than half the energy of older buildings.
This class is a great overall prep for knowledgeably buying, selling, touring, and inspecting new residential construction with your clients.
