HERS and MLS

The four main categories in the "Green Fields" MLS listings are:

This is a significant acknowledgment of the growing demand for energy efficient homes. The "green fields" category will enable REALTORS® to provide their clients with better information about a property's energy efficiency, as well as information regarding qualifications for loan programs related to energy efficiency upgrades.

An advantage for home sellers is that studies have shown that homes with energy saving features command higher resale prices, while homebuyers benefit from understanding the potential cost of running a home they want to buy by examining its HERS Index Score.


The HERS Index Score is the housing industry's version of a car's MPG (miles-per-gallon) sticker; it informs consumers about a home's energy performance.

What is the HERS Index?

The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index is the industry standard by which a home's energy efficiency is measured. It’s also the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home's energy performance.

There are a lot of great reasons to have a home energy assessment performed on your house. It can tell you so much about the home you live in, like how efficiently it’s operating and where you can make modifications for greater energy savings. When you’re selling your home, a low HERS rating can command a higher resale price. And when you’re buying a home you can anticipate the costs of energy bills and efficiency upgrades.

Already, more than 1 million American homes have received their HERS Index score.


How does the HERS Index work?

To calculate a home’s HERS Index score, a certified RESNET home energy rater carries out an energy rating on your home and compares the data against a ‘reference home’ – an imaginary home of the same size and shape as the actual home, so your score is always relative to the size, shape and type of house you live in.

Some of the variables included in an energy rating are:
