Going GreenPosted on 02/12/10
The National Association of Realtors has a new specialty for real estate agents. RE/MAX International has also jumped on the band wagon and has the new Green Specialist. NAR say that 70% buyers of new home buyer’s want to buy a Green designated home. What is going Green? Builders are building new construction that is extremely energy efficient. I have one builder that just finished a solid concrete home, foam insulated roof, energy efficient appliances and he will guarantee a buyer that power bills will not be over $600 per year. That breaks down to $50 month. Homebuyers: you can rest assured that your Green Specialist knows which green features can help you save money, safeguard your health and lesson your carbon footprint. Being Green is not just the right thing to do. It’s the smart thing to do. When I build my next home I will defiantly go Green.
