Green Day 2: April 25
Representing Buyers and Sellers of Resource Efficient Homes
Demand for Green Homes Is Growing
Green real estate is not a fad, but a fundamental change in the market. Nearly 40% of home buyers consider high-efficiency heating and cooling features to be “very important,” and two-thirds of state governments have implemented green building policies. Furthermore, a 2012 study found that green certified homes – with labels such as Energy Star or GreenPoint Rated – sold for up to 9% more than homes without a green label.
People have different motivations for going green: some want to reduce their impact on the environment, others want to save money, reduce waste, or create a healthier home for their children. Our trainings will provide you with the education to support your clients’ green endeavors no matter their objective.
