This study addressed Green Home Sales in the Washington D.C. area, but certainly applies to anywhere in the states. Interesting findings.
Homebuyers are not only increasingly interested in high-performance homes, or homes incorporating green features, but they are also willing to pay more for them, according to a new study released today by the Institute for Market Transformation (IMT) and the District of Columbia’s Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE).
“What is Green Worth? Unveiling High-Performance Home Premiums in Washington, D.C.,” released by IMT and funded by the DOEE, finds that high-performance homes marketed with green features (such as a solar photovoltaic array or LEED certification) sell for a mean premium of 3.46 percent compared to homes without green features.
