On St. Patty's day we're all a little Irish and wear some green and it's a good opportunity to remind ourselves to also Think Green. In the real estate industry we owe it to ourselves and our customers/clients to be somewhat knowledgeable about the green factor and it's effects. There is a wealth of information at our disposal about green; green building, green remodeling, green appliances, green, green, green, even green Energy-Efficient Mortgages.
There's not any green grass here in the Fox Cities, but there is more and more talk about green and there are becoming more and more builders taking action.
When a client asks about green this or that we owe it to them to have an answer or at least know where to point them. I've found that the NAR website is a great place to start and from there it just snowballs. Green is here to stay and we should all be prepared.
Happy St. Patrick's Day... and Think Green.
