Green priorities for new and existing homes

Resource efficiency is a top consideration with new construction, but existing homes are about 90% of the market*. Through this designation you’ll learn to identify client preferences that align with the benefits of resource efficiency. You’ll also learn how to guide clients to make greener choices when upgrading existing homes, and how new construction homes can meet and exceed green standards.

Green homes are here to stay

Gain the knowledge that distinguishes you as a source for resource-efficient homes. This designation features content that focuses on the needs and  references of today’s homebuyer, such as cost savings, home health, and security. Discover the most effective ways of positioning a resource-efficient home on the market. The ability to bring the green aspects of a home to the forefront will make you an invaluable advisor to sellers.
