Following on the heels of the Value it Green tour in early September, Earth Advantage will be offering a new class called All About ADUs – A Primer Course for Brokers. The first class will be on October 1st.
From their mission statement. Earth Advantage is a Portland-based nonprofit whose mission is to accelerate the creation of better buildings. We provide knowledge to building professionals and information to consumers through certification, research, education, and product development to move the building industry towards more sustainable practices.
When designing my ADU, I took Earth Advantage’s Sustainable Home Professional course and found it be extremely enlightening. I’m honored to bring this new curriculum to Earth Advantage and I know that realtors in the Portland market will find the information in the course to be very helpful as they help clients select properties with ADU potential.
Here’s the class description.
It’s a half-day course is intended for brokers who need to increase their knowledge about Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) development, in order to respond increasing client demand for properties with ADU potential. Many prospective home buyers are interested in building an ADU on their property. This course is intended to help brokers understand the basic planning and building regulations for ADU development in the City of Portland in order to better assist their clients
