An Independent Research Study
Says "Thumbs Up" to Green-builts...
If you read my BLOG, you probably already guessed that. Nevertheless, this is exciting news of interest to REALTORS® and our clients.
The research corroborates ...independently... Green Value , taking a good solid look at what makes green buildings commendable, and does so in a large, international study in Canada, the USA and the UK.
The study concludes:
- There is clear link between the market value of a building and its green features
- Not only are green buildings good for the environment but they do provide healthier places to live
- Green buildings are more productive places in which to work
- Green office buildings can command higher rents and prices
- In general, Green built buildings do attract tenants more quickly, reduce tenant turnover and cost less to operate and maintain.
"With buildings consuming such a large share of resources," the study reports, " the green building movement has set about changing the way we design, construct, operate and generally, think, about buildings and communities. "
Here in Asheville, a hub of green building where "green value" is widely recognized, green builders and developers seem to be clued-in to the value of integrating sustainable concepts in building, but up until recently there has been no definitive study of the "green-value-added" factor.
So the big "thumbs up" is exciting to read about. Ppossibly, this independent research is an important step toward greater awareness of the pluses of green-builts in the real estate market.
