Ct. Realtor’s learning about Green Homes.

Connecticut Real Estate Salespeople and Brokers are required every two year by the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection Real Estate Commission to complete a minimum of 12 hours of continuing education (CE). The majority of these CE classes are organized by the local Boards/Associations of Realtors®.

The Tiger Real Estate School offers a three hour CE course specifically designed for Realtors® on Green Building, Green Living in Connecticut. This course covers the latest technologies in Green Building and the impact they have upon future real estate transactions. “Green Building” is about designing with a focus on increasing the efficiency of resource use while reducing building impacts on human health and the environment.

For Realtor® who what to become proficient in today’s world of green homes and lifestyle can continue their educations with the National Association of Realtor’s Green Designation. The NAR’s Green provides advance training in green building and sustainable business practices along with learning about energy efficiency and sustainability in the various facets of real estate. To find your local GREEN Realtor visit the Green Resource Council Organization website.

It is also becoming easier to search for these “Green” Energy Efficient homes on the local Multiple Listing Services (MLS) as they are beginning to incorporate such features on the local MLS. 

The Greater Fairfield CMLS has recently added an ‘Energy Feature’ parameter to the MLS with such items as Active Solar, Built Green Certification and Tank-less hot water. Adding these features makes it much easier to search, find and sell energy efficient homes. To be able to see more examples of Green MLS identifiers and fields click here along with visiting Greening the MLS tool kit website.

When I was over in Germany this past summer, I was amazed at how far advanced they are when it comes to Green Homes!

My two year education anniversary is rapidly approaching. I'm going to try to get as many "Green" courses as I can - so much more interesting to me. So, why not?
