2009 Atlanta Green Home Sales Statistics January 1-June 30
I have been working hard to come up with a solid plan for reporting Certified Green Home Sales Statistics for Atlanta, Georgia. After speaking with several industry professionals about best practices I believe we have a good report that will stand the test of time.
The findings are based on Single Family Homes that were built 2007 or later and were sold as New Construction in 39 Metro Atlanta FMLS areas. This includes homes with a list price between $250,000 and $2,000,000. Certified Green Homes include EarthCraft House, LEED for Homes, and Energy Star. All findings are based on Median Numbers.
The median list price for green homes was $424,950 (6.3% higher than conventional new construction)
The median sales price was $397,500 (7.5% higher than conventional new construction)
The median sales price/list price ratio was 93.5% (1.1% higher than conventional new construction)
The medain total days on market was 128 days (5.5% less than conventional new construction)
The total number of homes sold was 45 homes (4.4% of the total market)
As you can see we are seeing a lot of success in the Atlanta market with Certified Green Home Sales. The numbers are positive across the board and prove that there is value in Green Home Building. We are excited with all of the movement going on in Atlanta with the recent formations of the Green Building Council of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, the Green Council of the Atlanta Board of Realtors, and the USGBC’s Residential Committee of the Georgia Chapter. Together we are working to spread the word about Green Home Building and encourage the use of Green Building Certifications. Below is a link to the full report and it can also be found in the right hand sidebar.
