For smart moves and healthy-built features and benefits, this is a good place to start.
Investing in a HealthyBuilt® home opens up all kinds of interesting home buying choices.Those choices range from financial advantages (tax and energy efficiency mortgages) to higher quality living spaces, (who doesn't want improved comfort?), to the many "shades of green" that can be eco-friendly.
3 Hints for Smart Moves
1.Consult with an Eco savvy REALTOR®. When you get this person on your team, you benefit from Land and Mountain Homes Specialist (like me), or residential specialist, you also will benefit from his or her understanding of the features and benefits of "green" properties and the trends and value-added pluses... Sustainable design and construction mean added value to you today and in the future.
2. Inside/Outside- take the time to familiarize yourself with the "sense of place". Look around the community, so that you can see homes and/or land in context. Even if you are in an Asheville area sustainable community, consider the eco-friendly possibilities: native vegetation, air gardens, green ways, and water-wise systems. Consider driving and walking distances, and scout out bike paths, trails, outdoor gathering places. Inside:Look for Energy Star® appliances, LEED ® and/or Healthy-Built ®homes, Home Energy Ratings, "Low-E" windows, NO VOC paints, rainwater harvesting, water management systems, and zero waste....
3. As in nature, the "shades of green" are many. And so many Asheville NC area homes today are excellent money and energy saving choices, and lots of different ways for the investment you make in your home or land to work as a benefit for you.
