How Can Investing in a Certified Green Home
Safeguard Your Financial Future?

Saving money for retirement is difficult and nearly impossible for many people, so much so that it can be overwhelming to start. Questions arise like “What will the cost of living be? Where will I want to live? Will I be able to buy a home in the future? How will my investment home compete with homes in the future?”. 

Considering current interest rates and inevitable future inflation, buying a home today can give you a higher return than later. However, how do you ensure that your home can compete with future codes, building technologies, and construction trends so that you can make the absolute most of your investment today?

The great news is that building a Certified Green home can allow you confidently invest in a home that has been inspected, verified, and certified to be more durable, highly energy and water efficient, and healthy-to-live-in. Certified Green homes have on average 20% less maintenance and repair costs than traditionally built homes.  

Building owners investing upfront in green homes see at least a 10% greater increase in asset value, and the percentage of owners reporting that level of growth has nearly doubled since 2012 according to the US Green Building Coalition. Green building demand is increasing across the world; however, most builders and homes are built using traditional construction practices.

You can have a jump start by building Certified Green at today’s prices while empowering your financial well-being tomorrow.
