Green Real Estate
Are You Prepared to Help Clients Buy or Sell a Green Home?
Did you know that nearly 40% of home buyers consider energy efficient features to be "very important"? A 2012 study also 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.
Now is the time to gain a competitive advantage in this market and become your clients' go-to resource for buying or selling a green home with our new NAR Green Designation training!
Build It Green has partnered with the National Association of REALTORS® to deliver trainings (fees waived thanks to the support of The Energy Network) to help California real estate professionals earn this certification -- the most recognizable national green certification for real estate professionals.
