Welcome to the Green MLS Tool Kit
Welcome to the Green MLS Toolkit, a green real estate industry collaborative project. Home buyers, sellers and appraisers depend on a green MLS for the same goal: ensuring fair value for sustainable, healthy, and energy efficient homes.
The Green MLS Toolkit is one solution for three different problems. A multiple listing service with relevant green data fields can:
- Help buyers quickly find green homes
- Make it easy to fully promote the special features of a green home, or a brown home with green retrofits
- Support apples-to-apples comparison when it is time to appraise a green home
You can download a printable version of this toolkit online.
Green MLS is designed to support the flow of green home information/performance between the players in the marketplace. Value for green homes follows the information flow shown above. When high-quality, verifiable information about improved homes can pass to all the key actors in a transaction, fair value at closing can follow. A green MLS is often the hub that makes the information-sharing possible.
