Your Million Dollar Year Day 19 GREEN Designation. Understanding how your house envelope is put together is a critical new piece of the knowledge puzzle that agents need to understand how to better assist buyers and sellers of  GREEN homes. This is not just about new construction, but retrofitting older homes as well. Here in the Boston area our homes can be as old as our country.  Houses in this area can have been

built before there was electricity and running water.  Understanding how houses are put together is vital information when you consult your clients on how best to market GREEN initiatives in a home or how to best direct a new home buyer in the savings of buying a Net Zero energy efficient home.

New England has been a leader in the technology of GREEN homes in part because of the incredible schools and technology companies in our backyards, but also because we face all types of weather.  Getting your house envelope tight is necessary to keeping your house warm through the winter. No other course I have taking in my many years as a Realtor® has taught me more about how a house and it's systems work together to keep us healthy inside.

Healthy homes are those who's inside air quality is not infected by gases released by some types of building materials trapped inside the walls of the home.  With climate change a topic of discussion for some or a place for derision by those who deny the changes it can not be denied that a home with mold growing inside it is a reason for concern for your family. Working with a professional that keeps in touch with the changing products and processes for building keeps you better informed as a consumer or a Seller.

David Popoff my training lets me know that Energy star is the lowest certification for high performance homes. There is LEED, Pearl and newer more stringent codes coming in as well.  No doubt your home is very healthy and running efficiently.

Larry Lawfer Yes I know, I am a LEED AP, our house is equal to a Gold LEED home but I just decided not to spend the $5,000 on the certification process.

David Popoff so there is coming a new valuation tool. The pvvalue.com will give way to an EIvalue of some sort.  It will allow you to consider paying the $5,000 for the extra value of having such a designated house getting you $20,000 and more for the high performance. These are new conversations to have. Thanks for leading the way.
