Atlanta Green Homes

Nowadays the idea of “green homes” is getting more and more popular among home buyers. They are definitely “going green”. What does it mean in real estate?

There are special green building certification programs of local and national scale which helps home buyers to make the decision about a purchase. These programs are Earth Craft House, Energy Star Homes, LEED for Homes and NAHB National Green Building Program. What are the advantages of such living in a “green zone”? Living in a “green” location promotes better health, a reduction in greenhouse gas, increased social capital and stronger local businesses. The way of life as a whole in these locations is eco-friendly. So, those who are going to buy a house in Georgia this year, pay their attention to special green certification programs and really win. And by the way - why not to try FSBO?
