PLAN Your Move to a Greener Home.
Step One: Spruce up your abode.
Paint. Use NO VOC paints, remove and replace old carpets with nontoxic flooring, consider replacing all the light bulbs with LEDs..
I love Asheville's locally-produced Earthpaint® which is NO VOC for sprucing up both interior and exterior surfaces. (Check the link. You can order it shipped if need be.)
This beginning plan will increase the value of the home and certainly makes it more attractive to today's buyers
Step Two: Replace old appliances with energy efficient appliances.
Step Three: Update windows, insulate for energy efficiency, and go for daylighting. .
Step Four: Seek out a"green" real estate professional with NAR's GREEN Designation or the EcoBroker or Eco Certified Real Estate Consultant Designation. (I'm smiling)
