Living Green, Living Smart at Maracay HomesPosted 06/17/2015
Green means “go,” at least for today’s homebuyers who are choosing to go out and purchase new homes because of the green savings associated with owning a new home. According to the National Association of Realtors’ 2014 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers report, “ a significant number homebuyers – about 10 percent – cited green/energy-efficiency as a reason for their new home purchase in 2014.
While consumers are motivated to save the environment, they’re finding initially paying more up front for environmentally friendly features can save money in the long run. Strong areas of importance include energy-efficient appliances and lighting, heating and cooling costs, environmentally friendly community features and landscaping for energy conservation, according to the survey.
