In the latest episode of America Adapts, Doug Parsons hosts Cal Inman, founder of ClimateCheck, an online real estate climate risk data tool, that identifies current risk exposure to climate impacts such as drought, floods and sea level rise. Cal shares why climate data is so important to the real estate sector in helping consumers make climate smart decisions on home buying. We also ground truth the ClimateCheck tool on two vastly different home locations to see what their future impacts will be.

Topics discussed:

  • What is ClimateCheck and how does it work.
  • How large real estate listers like Redfin and Zillow are integrating climate impacts into their database of homes.
  • How the real estate sector is evolving to consider climate impacts.
  • Home level case study of how ClimateCheck works.
  • Why is climate data so important for the real estate sector?
