While people have been talking about potential impacts of climate change on real estate valuations for years, from the sea shore to river banks and ski resorts, it is only relatively recently that the topic has become mainstream. Today, some companies are beginning to bet on climate risk in real estate markets. But while the concentration is getting louder, there are many questions about the future of vulnerable real estate under climate change.

  • Are we one hurricane away from a localized collapse of real estate markets?
  • How quickly could sea levels rise at the local level?
  • Are we one law away from a flood-insurance premium inspired collapse of localized real estate markets?
  • Are we one fire away from the loss of fire insurance across large parts of the Western United States?
  • How long will snow resort real estate values hold up in the face of shrinking snow packs?
  • How rapidly will “climate gentrification” occur in real estate markets?
  • Could real estate impacts turn into a systemic risk event at the level of the national economy?
  • How well prepared are real estate interests for the climate change “gray rhinos” of rising seas and rising temperatures?

These are the kinds of trillion-dollar questions the Climate Web, based on 20,000 hours of knowledge curation, can help you explore. This Lite Roadmap organizes some of the resources available to you.

Key Index Entries include:

Key Topical Headings for books, reports, and journal articles:

Key Topical Headings for news and opinion:

Key Topical Headings for extracted materials:

Key Topical Headings for websites, experts, and more:

As a bonus, here are some recent additions to the Climate Web you might find thought-provoking that relate specifically to the topic of this Lite Roadmap. They represent just the smallest sliver of what’s organized in the Climate Web with the goal of facilitating access to your actionable knowledge. Note that links with “$$” sit behind paywalls and we can’t provide direct access. But we are always working to go through those sources to extract key idea and graphics to share under “fair use” rules.

NOTE: Accessing the Climate Web via Roadmap hyperlinks can be a bit disconcerting if you’re not familiar with TheBrain software’s basic functionality, which you can explore via the Basic Navigation link at right. If you do explore some of the links, please remember that Open Access to the Climate Web (via the cloud) is both much slower and less powerful than Premium Access to the Climate Web (which allows you to download the Climate Web to your computer AND take advantage of TheBrain’s superior desktop and mobile softwares).

To clearly see the differences between a Lite Topical Roadmap and a Premium Topical Roadmap, you can take a look at both versions of the Under-Estimating Climate Risks Roadmap:

The Premium Real Estate Risks Roadmap digs much deeper into the topics already flagged at the top of this page, among others. Representing hundreds of hours of research and knowledge curation, the Premium Roadmap links together together explanatory materials, topical headings, individual reports, news stories, videos, and websites, curated topical dashboards for exploring key topics, and even individual ideas and graphics the Climatographers have extracted from a wide range of key sources. The Premium Real Estate Risks Roadmap walks you through the “story” of climate change and real estate, including:

  • The rapidaly rising sea level rise and real estate conversation
  • The evolving climate gentrification conversation
  • The data relating to properly priced flood insurance premiums
  • The much smaller literature on climate change and mountain resorts
  • Wildfire impacts on insurance and real estate markets
  • And much more

To get beyond Real Estate Risk 101 conversations, and to take advantage of today’s collective knowledge in this area: access the Real Estate Risks Premium Roadmap here.
