Natural disasters have become a significant factor underlying mortgage default. Further, properties less vulnerable to threats such as flooding sell at comparably higher prices. This class is designed to help Realtors understand the threats that drought, wildfires, floods, hurricanes, and sea level rise pose to clients buying or selling real property.

Further, we will discuss what the best available science and data indicate regarding the link between these threats and climate change. Students will come to understand risk under climate change, what the existing uncertainties are, and where to find the best available scientific information. While agents can not be expected to be scientific experts, this course will help agents direct their clients to critical public data sources.
