Geoscience Education for Realtors, Appraisers, Home Inspectors, and Homeowners
NOTE: This is a large file, 22.7 mb in size! As urban development encroaches onto less suitable sites, knowledge of the connection between the ground beneath one's home and the home itself becomes increasingly critical to the homebuyer. This paper describes an applied course designed for Realtors and appraisers that the author founded and taught for about eight years in Colorado. It describes the nature of these students, ways to teach that meet their needs, and the benefits the author witnessed. The course, entitled "Geologic Hazards for Realtors, Appraisers, and Property Owners", provides an overview of geologic hazards in the Colorado Front Range area and their potential to impact property values.
