There is a silent increase on the march in our coastal communities and impacts from it are adding up—big time! It is an increase in the risks we face from storms, flooding, erosion, sea level rise, and a changing climate. These risks have associated environmental , economic and even psychological costs—costs which are escalating as the storms from 2018 that rocked different states and Cape Cod so vividly demonstrated. These risks also affect key decisions people make including where to live and where to buy and rent property, which in turn have implications for the real estate industry. Today there is growing emphasis nation-wide on increasing coastal resilience, i.e. the ability of people and communities to better prepare for, respond to, and recover from disruptive events. This seminar aims to build understanding of realtors of this topic and unpack what coastal resilience means for the real estate sector.

In this seminar we will:

  • highlight coastal risks we face on Cape Cod and how and why our vulnerability is increasing
  • discuss effective ways to communicate about risks like flooding and erosion
  • discuss what can be done to enhance resilience
  • highlight what is being done from a regional level to provide communities with tools and information to better prepare
  • share relevant information and planning resources that could be useful to realtors in their work
