In April of 2017, North Carolina Building Performance Association (NCBPA) and Pivotal Energy Solutions partnered with the Raleigh, NC-based Triangle MLS to auto-populate green, energy efficient and high performance home data while also adding dozens of new “green” fields to the system. In doing so, the other 160+ Paragon MLS systems across the country received access to these same features.

Attend this session to learn how the project was proposed, agreed to and completed in order to enable more accurate and higher appraised values for high performance homes while also educating consumers, building a comparables market, and promoting the value of certification programs such as National Green Building Standard (NGSBS).

Learning Objectives:

  1. Benefits of participating in third-party verified energy efficiency programs.
  2. Methods and considerations for aggregation and distribution of energy efficiency data into the real estate market.
  3. How access to and auto-population of energy efficiency data benefits Realtors, appraisers, lenders, and consumers.
  4. How this effort can be leveraged to make energy efficiency and green building data a normal part of the buying/selling decision-making process.
