Passive House, All-Electric, and Low-Energy Homes for Real Estate Professionals

October 24, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

In this workshop course, we’ll present on overview of high-performance homes, the Passive House certification standard, and net-zero and all-electric homes, including case-studies of projects and best practices for marketing and valuating high-performance.

With the roll-out of the updated Stretch Code and new Specialized Opt-In Code, new homes will soon be built to higher energy performance standards. These types of buildings are not that new, however, and Massachusetts has a long history of low-energy, net-zero, and Passive House projects, and from lower energy costs to higher levels of indoor air quality there are many benefits they offer. This course is designed to bring you up-to-speed on what sets these types of homes apart and how best to market them.


Craig Foley is the founder of Sustainable Real Estate Consulting Services, a LEED Green Associate and chief sustainability officer for LAER Realty Partners.

Aaron Gunderson is the Executive Director of Passive House Massachusetts and a Certified Passive House Tradesperson.
