Learn more on energy efficiency!  Marketing Green....and how you can increase your income with this knowledge!
For Example:
There are more than 120 million homes in the United States, 2 million new homes are being built each year!
According to the US Dept. of Energy- the residential sector accounts for 22% of the total energy in the USA and 74% of the water consumed. 21% of Carbon Dioxide emissions are by the residential markets the real estate industry represents.
Ask yourself....Would my clients care about Energy Tax Credits or Energy Efficient Mortgages?
A tax credit can provide significant savings. It reduces the amount of income tax you have to pay. Unlike a deduction, which reduces the amount of income subject to tax, a credit directly reduces the tax itself. The final rules and forms to clarify which products and services qualify for the tax credits will be developed by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Of course, you must refer clients to the final IRS rules to determine what qualiies for the tax credit.
