Energy Efficiency Fields
Have a listing that meets energy efficiency standards? Last summer we introduced two new data fields: HERS Score and Green Certification. These fields can be found in Add/Edit when entering a new listing. If a listing has a HERS score, enter the numeric score in the text box. To indicate a listing having Green Certification, chose ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ from the drop down. These fields allow agents to communicate the value of energy efficiency as a matter of consumer interest.
After appropriate living space that meets their needs, having energy efficient features was the second most important characteristic buyers look for in a new home (Source: 2013 NAHB Home Trends & Buyer Preference). Update your listings now if they meet the Green Certification standards or have a HERS score.
