AUSTIN, Texas, March 31, 2021 (Newswire.com) - House X™, a consumer-focused residential real estate online marketplace and network of affiliated brokerages, today announced its collaboration with Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET), a nonprofit organization focused on improving the energy efficiency of homes, to provide energy rating scores to House X home shoppers and buyers.
RESNET's industry-leading standards, also known as the HERS Index (Home Energy Rating Standards) are recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, among others.
"We are pleased to collaborate with House X to help provide HERS Index data to the homes in their marketplace. RESNET has been working with MLS systems across the nation to incorporate HERS Index Scores into their listings. Our collaboration with House X will boost this effort by providing the largest dataset of energy-efficient homes in the country," said RESNET Executive Director Steve Baden.
Today, consumers want the power of choice and data from credible sources to help them make more informed purchase and lifestyle decisions. Now House X offers HERS scores for nearly 1.9 million homes from RESNET and more available home inventory for sale by aggregating both MLS and off-MLS properties for new homes in construction.
"Whether you are buying or selling a home, consumers should know the HERS rating of a home to determine the efficiency and indoor air quality of the home," said William Farrell, president of House X. "We use the HERS score to help determine the number of years of zero-cost renewable electricity that we provide our home buyer clients."
House X further supports home buying clients by reinvesting over 65 percent of the normal brokerage fee to provide two to five years of renewable energy and a Delos multi-room air purification system, making the home healthier and lowering the cost to own, operate and maintain.
"Our homes are a critical tool in addressing today's most pressing public health concerns while also helping us be more resilient in the future," said Paul Scialla, Founder and CEO of Delos and Founder of the International WELL Building Institute. "The collaboration between RESNET and House X will help buyers make more informed decisions that directly impact their health and well-being."
House X also recently launched its American Dream 2021 tour, featuring 21 pilot cities in which to expand homeownership; featuring over 40,000 new, healthier, energy-efficient homes across the country valued at over $18 billion with up to $364 million in stimulus in incentives by providing home buyers free renewable energy and a discounted mortgage loan.
