Has Anyone Encountered Obstacles In Determining Green Feature Values In Home Sales?

Real Estate Agent with Pat Bennett Realty MA 9508945 NH 059297

I recently attended a class for examining some green features installed in new and existing homes.  I was surprised to learn that a home recently built totally green in New Hampshire suffered some time on the market due to buyers who were unaware that green features gave the home a different set of values in determining price.  It seems New Hampshire has not caught up with this new trend as well as other parts of the country.  I have not yet dealt with this issue and would appreciate anyone's knowledge in this area.

Hi Michele, thank you for your response.  I did hear that Boston, MA is implementing it and was a bit surprised that the builder in New Hampshire had run into the stumbling block.  I am looking into it further.
