According to McGraw Hill Construction research dating back to 2006, green homes are in demand. “The green home building market most rapidly accelerated during the housing downturn when builders experienced in green remained in business at higher proportions than those not knowledgeable about energy-efficient and green home building.”
As the housing industry has improved, buyers are no longer just looking at depressed prices as a motivator to buy. Now buyers are looking at green features to help their buying decisions and are paying more for green.
