"Congratulations from EcoBroker International to the collaborators who produced the Green MLS Toolkit and supporting website. This project will support the standardized collection of accurate information on homes containing features that improve energy performance and environmental impacts. The timing is right and consumers have been asking for this information. Good job! Now let's all support implementation in our local MLS programs."

"As the nation's largest organization of real estate appraisers, the Appraisal Institute is pleased to participate in this important effort to enhance the data found in the MLS. With more data, appraisers will be able to perform more comparisons and analytical analyses and therefore present even more reliable valuations, which will benefit everyone involved in a real estate transaction.
Given their reliance on data, appraisers would be thrilled with more robust information, especially on energy efficiency, in the MLS because it would allow them to make well-supported comparisons, analyses and adjustments.
