Green homes are built with materials that aremore durable and construction practices that typically exceed building code requirements.
We design and build with attention to details and materials with green strategies that enhance your home's performance and reduce maintenance and replacement costs, thereby raising your home’s value. In fact, compared to standard homes, durable energy efficient homes equate to lower ownership costs, and the additional savings on maintenance can be substantial.
When it comes time to sell your house, the comfort, health benefits, and low utility bills are features that will differentiate your house. Energy efficiency features have been shown to help homes sell more quickly and for greater profits. Today's home buyers are looking for energy efficiency.
“A study by The Appraisal Journal found that the selling price of homes increased by $20.73 for every $1 decrease in energy bills. If your energy bills average $1,500/yr. and you saved $400/yr., your home value would increase by $8,300.”
Whether you are buying or selling a home, understanding the impact of current and future utility costs are crucial to recognizing the real value of a home.
