Sustainability is a word that will likely be in the housing lexicon for the next generation of housing and beyond. LEED and Earth Craft Certification and the Green Building Council are all terms that will continue to become more and more prevalent in the minds of the home buying public. As the demand becomes more and more real, the building community will be forced to respond.
Realtors need to respond as well.
At One South, we work closely with our neighbor (both literally and spiritually) EarthCraft of Virginia to better educate our agents and their clients about the importance of building in a sustainable and efficient fashion. Being able to communicate the readings on a blower door test or the benefits of a conditioned crawl space not only helps our clients understand their options, but helps the appraisal community assign value to the building techniques that are unfortunately far too rare in our marketplace.
Allow me to help you in your efforts to ‘go green.’
