For some time we’ve heard about the benefits of green building and purchasing a green home, but are green homes really better than conventionally constructed houses? Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association president Les Stumpff educates homeowners on the benefits of purchasing a green home. With more than 23 years experience in the homebuilding industry, Stumpff believes that green building is no longer just a trend, it’s here to stay.
Green houses are a better investment for buyers. According to MLS data collected since 2008 by Atlanta’s leading Eco-Broker, Carson Mathews, a certified green constructed home sells for 97 percent of its list price on average versus a conventional home that sells for an average of 92 percent of its list price.
According to Stumpff, some of the benefits to owning a green home are reduced energy bills, increased conservation through lower energy usage, increased indoor air quality and protection from extreme temperatures providing residents with increased comfort.
With all of the benefits provided by green homes, they truly are a better investment.
