Planning More Sustainable Features in Your Home Design is a Smart Investment

Some homeowners believe that investing in sustainable home features costs too much money, that the up front costs will outweigh any benefits. This couldn't be further from the truth. Yes, choosing sustainable features up front may cost more in the beginning but the return on your investment will last for years to come.

Choosing sustainability saves you money in three key ways:

    • Lower cost of living Once the initial investment has been recouped the energy use savings is anywhere from $4 to $16 for each square foot. The water savings may be as high as $2 for each square foot.

    • Return on initial investment A recent construction industry survey indicated that the return on investment for green projects in existing building structures increased 19.2% when compared to traditional structures.

  • Higher resale value Energy efficient homes sell for 8% more than non-certified homes and offer prospective buyers the options and upgrades they are seeking.
