Understanding how your house envelope is put together is a critical new piece of the knowledge puzzle that agents need to understand how to better assist buyers and sellers of GREEN homes. This is not just about new construction, but retrofitting older homes as well. Here in the Boston area our homes can be as old as our country. Houses in this area can have been
built before there was electricity and running water. Understanding how houses are put together is vital information when you consult your clients on how best to market GREEN initiatives in a home or how to best direct a new home buyer in the savings of buying a Net Zero energy efficient home.
New England has been a leader in the technology of GREEN homes in part because of the incredible schools and technology companies in our backyards, but also because we face all types of weather. Getting your house envelope tight is necessary to keeping your house warm through the winter. No other course I have taking in my many years as a Realtor® has taught me more about how a house and it’s systems work together to keep us healthy inside.
Healthy homes are those who’s inside air quality is not infected by gases released by some types of building materials trapped inside the walls of the home.
