In The BC Energy Step Code: A Primer for Selling Energy-Efficient New Homes, REALTORS® will improve their knowledge of the BC Energy Step Code and learn about building strategies and products that can help increase energy efficiency of a home. Realtors will also learn about various factors that may impact the decisions of their clients.
This course is authored by Peter Sundberg of the City Green Solutions, in conjunction with leading experts across the range of topics explored. Realtors taking this course will find particularly useful short videos recorded by local home construction experts.
After completing this course, learners will be able to:
- explain the role that the BC Energy Step Code plays in aligning with the national and provincial strategies and pathways to net zero ready new construction,
- identify the key features and benefits of high-performance homes and buildings,
- educate their clients about the BC Energy Step Code and more effectively sell energy-efficient homes.
The primary goal of this course is to enhance the standard of professional competency in how Realtors assist their clients and protect their best interests during the home buying or home selling experience, particularly in the area of energy efficiency.
This project is made possible with funding from the BC Hydro and the Real Estate Foundation of British Columbia.
