While it is easy to claim that a home is a green home, not every home is an energy efficient Green Home.
Green homes are not homes that neither are green in color nor are they homes inside a large, tall tree. Green Homes are, by the web definition: A home that uses less energy, water, natural resources, create less waste and is healthier for the people living inside.
Our definition is a bit wider and it is: A home is considered green when it incorporates smart design with advantageous technology that encompasses most, if not all, the construction and maintenance elements that significantly lessen the negative impact on the environment and that adapts to the environment making it safer and healthier. This is how a green home is built.
The wave of our very near future is Green Homes, a future that is supported by the Federal and State lawmakers and our current market conditions. Our current administration is expected to continue offering more incentives for buyers who purchase green homes and, within a few years, we may begin to see a requirement that new and existing homes have to meet strict energy audit standards.
In today's market, it is easier to find financing for a Green Home than for a sticks home. Studies have shown that more families are able to qualify for energy efficient mortgage models that are affordable to all levels of income. The price range does not have to start at $300,000 and upward. In fact, our certified Green Homes in Jacksonville, Florida, start as low as $99,000. Currently we have sold two Green Homes that are near completion and five others are under construction.
There is a lot of valuable information and things happening in regards to green homes and green home solutions. Stay tuned and I will keep you posted. If you have urgent questions, however, or just can't wait until my next posting, you are welcome to call or write me.
