Consumer Survey finds Green Certified agents important

Thursday, February 17th, 2011

A Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Living Green Consumer Survey released Nov 2008 found one in three homeowners (30%) claimed they would be willing to spend $5,000 or more on green improvements to increase a home’s appeal to potential buyers. 

Additional survey findings revealed that when preparing to buy or sell a home, more than half of those surveyed (51%) believe in the importance of working with a green certified real estate agent ― professionals who can assist in the identification and marketing of homes with high green quotient.  This would include knowledge in regards to housing materials and construction, energy efficient appliances and systems, as well as the impact of landscaping on a home’s environmental footprint.

Yet more evidence that consumers want agents qualified in green building to represent them.  Take the Green Agent Essentials Course May 9th and 10th through Seattle King County Association of REALTORS.
