Giving cool real estate products, tools and news a Big Encore

Listed Green, green alternative listing site

David Syring, Founder and Progressive Manager of Listed Green, gives BigEncore a brief snapshot into the great eco-friendly listing site.

Founded in 2007 as the first online listing portal dedicated to showcasing only green and eco-friendly homes. To maintain that integrity all listings are reviewed by Listed Green staff to ensure they contain sufficient green, energy efficient and/or sustainable attributes before going public.

David was inspired to begin Listed Green in 2007 because he says, “Green homes and developments deserve more attention than the traditional MLS ‘s could even imagine offering” and Listed Green would fill that gap.

For homes to be showcased on Listed Green they must fulfill certain requirements to be considered Green. They might have alternative power solutions, like solar, wind or water. Or they might utilize sustainable energy efficient building methods in their construction. Other things include, grey and rainwater water recycling, Green Building certifications, healthier paints and stains, and alternative heating and cooling systems.

Since starting Listed Green, David says they have seen steady growth, “and a very positive response”.  Green is an important niche market that is growing in demand. Consumers are educating themselves and are looking for websites like Listed Green when starting their search. We give Listed Green a big encore!
