Mid-Atlantic Multiple Listing Service Incorporates HERS Index Scores on Its Listings

May 5, 2015

MRIS, the industry-leading Mid-Atlantic Multiple Listing Service (MLS) has added 14 new fields on high energy performance homes in its listing including a home’s HERS Index Score.

MRIS serves the states of Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C. and parts of Pennsylvania, Delaware and West Virginia.  It is one of the nation’s leading multiple listing services (MLS), facilitating over $45 billion in system wide sales in 2014. The company supports over 45,000 real estate professionals in the Mid-Atlantic region.

MRIS has joined the states of Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Maine, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Vermont, Virginia and Washington in allowing for the inclusion of a HERS Index Score in its property listings.

Steve Baden, RESNET’s Executive Director, commented that, “Including the HERS Index Score in the MLS is a significant push to the mainstreaming of the HERS Index Score in the housing market in the Mid-Atlantic region. REALTORS® rely on the MLS to guide potential homebuyers and appraisers to use the service to locate comparable properties. Having this information will make it easier for builders to market their HERS Index Scores and appraisers to calculate the market value of rated homes.”
