How To Find Green Real Estate In Any Area

Every listing you have already looked at consisted of properties that failed to meet what you really wanted, green features. Why is it that so few houses and apartments in your area are green? Clearly you must be missing something as no matter how much you searched, there is not a green building in sight. Your friends do not understand your obsession with green and their efforts to help you find the perfect “green” house usually fall flat. After all, few understood that what you are clearly interested in was a home that is environmentally friendly, energy efficient, and more conducive to a healthier lifestyle. Here are some areas you can consider in your search for such a green home.

Your first step towards finding a home with green features is to consult the list of realtors in your area or city of interest that are designated “green” by the National Association of Realtors (NAR). These designated green realtors have undergone intensive training on sustainable and energy efficient housing. This list of NAR green designated realtors also include Boston real estate companies that are only too happy to assist you in finding the most suitable home that meets the green designation for energy efficiency, health and sustainability.

With the guidance of the NAR green designated realtor you will be able to narrow down your home search and select an environmentally friendly and energy efficient home from among the homes for sale in Massachusetts. Then you can simply view the property up close, with the help of professionals who understand the green features, to ensure that the property actually meets your requirements. You can also check the green status of the property. Does it have a LEED rating or designation from the US Green Building Council? This is a recognition of the building’s compliance with green standards in keeping with the Leadership in Energy and Environment Design program of the US Green Building Council. From planning to final construction, this property should be in total conformity to the LEED standards for a green building.

Another standard you can also look out for in any potential green property you are interested in is the green certification from the National Home Builders Association. This is not much different from the LEED program as all elements of the house construction process are to incorporate green specifications. When you examine homes that are offered for sale by NAR designated realtors you can see for yourself whether they are compliant with the National Home Builder’s Association green certification.
