Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — The San Francisco bay region is emerging as one of California’s fastest growing markets when it comes to the green building industry. Since the creation of Green-Real-Estate.com, the mission of the website has been to explore and bring to the forefront local green building projects, products and services. The site is excited to showcase the newest innovations, trends, and products coming out of the bay area today. Green-Real-Estate.com is shifting the spotlight to the San Francisco Bay area by utilizing social media, online video, and content curation to provide users with easy-to-use tools for learning more about the concepts, benefits, and how-to’s of green building and remodeling in California. The site is expanding to provide Californians with the green resources they need. Whether a user is looking for an energy auditor for a San Francisco home, an energy efficient home in Palo Alto, or are looking for an architect and contractor for a green retrofit project, Green-Real-Estate.com is now providing the information to help.
Currently, Green-Real-Estate.com curates over 1,300 green building videos representing most major U.S. markets, and that number is growing quickly. The website has made itself into a handy destination for learning about various local green building and development issues by collecting and filtering literally thousands of green building videos from all over the web, and publishing only the best videos for viewing, commenting and sharing by site visitors. “In fact,” jokes Craig Immel, Founder and Editor of Green-Real-Estate.com, “I’ve been thinking of creating a new tagline – “We screen thousands of crappy green building videos so you don’t have to.” Immel and a small team of local editors contribute their green building expertise and experience to serve as a “human filter,” ensuring that only relevant, reliable and high quality videos are published on the site. It has been estimated that on YouTube alone, over 35 hours of video are uploaded every minute, and with that deluge of video content streaming onto the web, it has become increasingly important that expert human filters collect, screen, organize and provide context to all of this new information.
Local green builders, material suppliers and service providers are invited to upload their videos to their local channels. “We’ve designed the site to provide a fast and easy way for property sellers and others in green building to easily upload high-quality videos to promote their green real estate, products or services to visitors on the website’s local channels,” explains Immel, a LEED Accredited Professional. “Green-Real-Estate.com is a highly targeted and affordable place to upload their videos and tell their story online.” Green-Real-Estate.com features a growing user base of real estate professionals, and earns revenue through limited local advertising and site sponsorships.
