Study Shows Green Certified Homes Sell at Higher Prices

A study performed by the Earth Advantage Institute revealed that green certified homes can sell for higher dollar amounts than non-green homes. The study found that, on average, new homes that are green certified sell at 8% more than non-certified green homes while green certified existing homes sell at an average of 30% more. Green certifications are designated by Energy Star, LEED for Homes, Earth Advantage, or a combination of Earth Advantage/Energy Star.
