The Florida Green Building Coalition and member Sandra K. Adomatis, SRA, LEED Green Assoc., NAR GREEN are presenting a Webinar on Pitfalls to Avoid in Marketing, Financing and Valuing Green Homes, Wednesday, June 24 @ 2 p.m. There is no charge to register.
Avoiding pitfalls can increase your profit and decrease your stress level.
- Did you ever have trouble in the appraisal of a green built home? If you answered no to this question, you are unique and do not need to attend.
- Did you ever consider that the marketing of the green home may be the first pitfall to avoid? That could start a domino effect that trickles down to the valuing and financing steps.
Connecting the dots of marketing, financing, and valuing green homes will be the focus to make your deal happen with more money at the closing table.
Sandra is a member of the Florida Green Building Coalition and designated as an SRA Member (Residential Specialist) of the Appraisal Institute. She is the owner of Adomatis Appraisal Service in Punta Gorda, FL. Her accomplishments include development of residential green appraisal courses and seminars for the Appraisal Institute.
Join the Florida Green Building Coalition for an hour of tips that you will not want to miss. There is no charge to attend, but registration is required.
Going Green? In Florida You Have a Choice
The Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) is a nonprofit 501(C)3 Florida corporation dedicated to improving the built environment.
Our mission since 2000 has been to lead and promote sustainability with environmental, economic, and social benefits through regional education, local community outreach and certification programs.
FGBC was conceived and founded in the belief that green building programs will be most successful if there are clear and meaningful principles on which “green” qualification and marketing are based.
FGBC is a membership-based organization governed by a Board of Directors and corporate officers who are elected by the general membership.
The FGBC is continually finding new and innovative ways to educate builders, developers, local governments, architects and consumers about how to achieve a healthier, more environmentally sustainable future.
FGBC goals include:
- Administer certification programs based upon five green building standards
- Award its certification mark to qualified projects
- Educate the general public, businesses, institutional and governmental bodies of the long term benefits of sustainable development and green building practices
- Encourage housing affordability by increasing building sustainability
- Stimulate a partnership with other organizations and groups interested in green building practices
- Provide opportunities to increase their knowledge of green building practices.
Over 22,500 projects have been certified “Florida Green” since 2000.
“Florida Green” standards take a scientific approach and are developed with state-specific criteria. They address Florida’s hot-humid environment, distinctive topography, unique geology, resiliency and natural disasters.
Five Certification Standards
Local Governments (City and County)
Land Developments (Communities and Neighborhoods)
In partnership with the Florida Home Builders Association (FHBA), the Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) is posting the FHBA Hurricane Preparation and Resources Guide for builders, developers and contractors.
An additional Hurricane Checklist (Courtesy of Louisiana AGC) is also available.
Builders, developers and contractors need to prepare for the worst when storms pose a threat to their job sites and have a plan for dealing with the ramifications after a storm passes.
