First of all, let’s dispel the myth of ‘Green’ certifications for homes. So in construction, ‘green’ actually just means ‘well-built’. The green certifications are earned by home builders incorporating checklists and performance testing. All to thereby ensure a home will be comfortable. As well as healthy, durable, and low-cost. It turns out that homebuyers are willing to pay more for proof of those benefits. So can you say 10% more, on average. No recycled countertops or bamboo carpets needed.
