Greening the Arizona Regional MLS - again!
Volunteering for the U.S. Green Building Council has been very rewarding. When the Residential Green Building Committee, sub committee of U S Green Building Council, was formed 3 years ago, I jumped at the opportunity. Our committee is comprised of the Appraisal Committee, Builder Committee and Realtor Committee. In the past we’ve had an Advocacy Committee and Communications, but we’re still ramping those back in action.
- Energy/Green Features
- Green/Energy Certification
As a REALTOR® volunteer, my first priority 3 years ago was to green the MLS. Luckily, I had no trouble in finding others to work with me on this awesome project.
So here we are 3 years later and ready to add more updates. My goal this weekend is to review the Green & Energy Efficient Addendum created by the Appraisal Institute 6/1/11, building certifications, and to break down what are the most widely recognized features among certifications for the public. I’m sure others have worked on this for their MLS and I’d love to hear from you.
If you’ve worked on a committee or greened your MLS yourself, comment as to what features you’ve added.
