EXAMPLE for Corey...in Asheville.... 

In Western North Carolina, BB&T offers green lending.  It's pretty simple.  They discount the origination fee from 1% down to .5% and also offer a competitive interest rate.  They also pay for the first year's membership to the WNC Green Building Council.

 original post: 

Recently, Stephanie Edwards-Musa posted a request (see the link and quotes below) that got me talking with lenders here in Asheville and prompted this monthly Eco-All-Stars Challenge...

The ECO-ALL-STARS' ***November CHALLENGE..Find a GREEN LENDER

Steph set the stage:  " Times are changing. Homeowners and Buyers are looking at trying some different things.  Personally, I have had clients that would like to take existing homes and make them GREEN.  ..and asked  what's out there in the way of GREEN LOANS for renovation and /or new homes???

I just talked to JD Scott at Monarch Mortgage in Norfolk VA.  Granted this is a VA EEM, but he is working on it!

I will call my lender contact and see what I can find out.  I know the green lending products are available and I contacted Jeff Belanger over a year ago and asked for information, but never heard back - so maybe his company just doesn't do them.  I'll be back.

Hi janeAnne,

I hope this stirs up some of the Eco All Star members to get out and meet new lenders to see what is out there for their clients.  These Renovation loans are amazing!  Even not related to EEM's - They are worth their weight in gold right now. 

The lender I found accepts credit as low as 620!  I hear the squeaking of a lot of doors opening with it.  :)

If I hear of anything in my area I will post it. I bet my green builder is aware of some lenders or programs.

I've been having trouble with ActiveRain running real slow or not loading.  So, I could not get this to post.  Please do share it if you'd like.  Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!
