Ok so we live in a PC world. I"ll tell you right now this is not a PC post unless you're referring to my computer. This Green House thing is making me nuts. Oh yeah we have agents certified in "Green" homes but most people I've dealt with couldn't care less about a house being "green". Energy efficient windows and insulation sure..but totally GREEN!! In my humble opinion, the only one making money off Green Realty is John Edwards and the Global Warming crew. And I"m not even going there. It seems the only ones really into this are the folks on the west coast and an occasional sprinkle around the country. Perhaps I'm wrong..wouldn't be the first time.
I mean really. Here in Greenville, some areas do the recycling bin thingy. We dont' even have that in Travelers Rest although we do have collection bins at strategic locations. Not to mention it's more costly to recycle than produce, (dont' yell at me..this comes from Wikepedia!!). But I digress...
We did have one home that was Green a nearby neighborhood. Tres cool house..all recycled this and that and it was really interesting...in the way someone might go to a museum interesting. To live in...not so much. And in totally the wrong area..so nope..sold waaaay below. It just wasnt' an important selling feature to the buyers in this area nor to the vast plethora of masses coming from all over the world to live in the Upstate! So I don't get it.
Most buyers are looking for a place to lay their head and keep their families safe. A nice place that is safe, with good schools and infrastructure for their needs. So the endless chatter is making me see RED when it comes to GREEN. Is it a regional difference? It's not educational..we have the same information as you...we just don't see it as important as the good house with character that fits our price range down the road. Is that so wrong???
