Very nice post and exceptionally informative. You must really know a great deal about the "green factor" in sustainable home sales. Which of the above "value-added features" do you think is most important?

Good question. Personally, it depends on whether you are looking at personal/environmental importance or resale importance? Right now for me personally, having a passive solar home is the easiest, most affordable and would add value. Moreover, the decrease in energy costs is phenomenal. Until the green factor become ubiquitous, affordable and accepted as white bread, we still have a ways to go.
