Housing Industry Embracing HERS Index 2014 RESNET Conference to Feature Movement

Dec 3, 2013

Across the nation the RESNET HERS Index Score is fast becoming a mainstream in the housing market.  Homebuilders are having their homes energy rated and marketing the HERS Index Score of their homes, Multiple Listing Services (MLS) are incorporating the HERS Index Scores in their listings.

A major recent development to provide further momentum is an agreement between RESMET and the Appraisal Institute, RESNET accredited Home Energy Rating Software Programs will be able to generate the Appraisal Institute Green Addendum and auto-populate it from the data collected in the home energy rating.  With a key stroke, a Home Energy Rater will be able to populate much of the Appraisal Institute Green Addendum, which will allow their builder clients to communicate the home’s potential energy performance to the appraiser.

The 2014 RESNET Building Performance Conference will offer an unique opportunity to track this dynamic development and learn the business opportunities they present.

Core conference sessions dedicated to this topic includes:

  • Appraisal Institute’s Residential Green & Energy Efficient Addendum
  • Mainstreaming the HERS Index in the Market Place – Incorporating HERS Index into the Multiple Listing Service 
  • Energy Efficient Homes Represent Lower Mortgage Risk – The Evidence
