Sales of Certified Energy Efficient Homes Outperform Traditional Construction in Triangle

Statistics for 2012 home sales in the Triangle region in NC show that certified green homes sold for higher prices and spent less time on the market than traditional homes. Sales of certified homes have shown consistent growth each year, increasing at a rate more than twice that of uncertified homes. This data shows a strong appeal for certified homes even in a difficult market period.

Certification adds additional costs for the builder and owner, but is proof to the buyer that the home meets stringent specifications and will result in a healthy, durable home with monthly energy savings. This information should help real estate professionals understand the impact that certified energy efficient homes are having in the residential housing market and give builders a great reason to build certified homes.

Realty Analytics performed the data analyses using MLS and county records, see the original report here.
