Energy Efficient Mortgages for Green Homes.

In 2013 Green Homes comprised 23 percent of the overall residential construction market which is equivalent to $36 Billion and predicted to more than double by 2016.

“Green” Mortgages or Energy-Efficient Mortgages, EEM’s allow buyers to finance green home improvement due to the lower monthly utility cost associated with these improvements.

FHA green improvement cannot exceed a 5% of the property value and/or exceed $8,000. VA loans typically add up to $6,000 in energy efficient improvements.

These energy saving improvements also increase the value of your home with some of the features being:

  • Solar Panels
  • Geothermal Heating
  • Tank-less Hot Water Heater
  • Energy Star HVAC systems
  • Energy Star Thermal pane windows
  • Increase insulation

David, 23% is a significant number, Green Homes is still at it's infancy stages, some never even heard of Green Homes before. Builders are moving in the right direction. Great information and post!

The FHA and VA restrictions seem counter productive David.
