"Green" Sustainable Real Estate! It's exciting.
Things HAPPEN when people start getting together and talking. And the talk here in the Greater Asheville area, where "THINGS" already are happening is about making wise choices in terms of GREEN.
Asheville, N.C.'s creative citizenry including a growing number (of ECO Certified® Real Estate Consultants has set its heart on finding "Smart" ways to approach the practice of real estate and to provide healthy choices in land design and use that enhance a sense of community.
While the environmental and social benefits of green buildings to a community are clear, until recently, some real estate professionals and their clients questioned whether green-built buildings, added tangible value to a property. Then, Green Value, an independent research study provided in-depth research that concluded that a clear link is beginning to emerge between the market value of a building and its green features.
The study combined a review of literature and case studies and found that not only are green buildings good for the environment, provide healthier places to live and more productive places to work, they can command higher prices. Today's eco-savvy REALTORS® who are well aware of Asheville's "Smart Growth" plan for centrally situated public facilities, efficient and sustainable use of land, natural resources and energy see this as happy opportunity. Tied into the preservation of precious landscapes here in the mountains, a green-built-heritage becomes a very attractive model--one that as REALTORS® I and my fellow ECO Certified® associates are happy to be able to share with our clients.
For REALTORS®, accepting a leadership role in "green-thinking " new ways not only benefit sour ecology and our economy...but all concerned.
