New Energy Efficiency Fields

Effective June 6, NorthstarMLS adds two new data fields: Green Certification and HERS Score.

Green Certification: A simple “Yes/No” field to identify whether the property has been green/energy efficient certified by one of the following: MN Green Path, Energy Star, LEED-H, NAHB Green, MN GreenStar, Green Communities or WI Green Built Home. If selecting “Yes,” documentation of the certification must be attached to the listing as a supplement. Certification must apply to the entire home, not just a remodeled portion or appliances within the home.

HERS Score: Field for entering a HERS score of energy efficiency. Score must be established by a third party RESNET Rater and documentation attached to the listing as a supplement. HERS score must apply to the entire home, not just a remodeled portion.

NorthstarMLS is pleased to add these fields in order to better communicate the value of energy efficiency as a matter of consumer interest.  We are also pleased to announce a closer working relationship with the Builders Association of the Twin Cities. Read our joint press release about the new fields. We look forward to continuing this relationship to make MLS improvements that benefit agents, appraisers, builders, and everyone’s clients.
