New York, NY, Rochester, NY, Albany, NY (PRWEB) June 30, 2011
New York is emerging as one of America’s fastest growing markets when it comes to the green building industry. Green-Real-Estate.com's focus is to showcase the newest sustainable real estate innovations, trends, products and services. Now, the site is shifting the spotlight to New York 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 New York. Green building can be complicated with multiple strategies available to help property owners, designers and builders meet their sustainability goals. Green-Real-Estate.com is now providing resources to connect local product and service providers to clients and customers who need them.
Currently, Green-Real-Estate.com curates over 1,500 green building videos representing most major U.S. markets, and that number is growing quickly. With growing awareness of global energy and environmental issues, the website has become a destination for learning about 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. "Everyday, more and more people are visiting Green-Real-Estate.com to learn how to improve their property with the environment and energy cost savings in mind," says Craig Immel, Founder and Editor of Green-Real-Estate.com. Immel is building a small team of local editors to 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.
Founded in 2008, Green-Real-Estate.com leverages the power of online video to showcase your favorite local green building projects, products and services.
