Green…as in Lower Loan Defaults
Posted on January 27, 2011 by Laura
Here’s a report that’s worth looking at again. Grist reported that a study last year showed that ENERGY STAR homes were 11% less likely to default on a mortgage.
It’s time that we stop talking about the features of green homes, and talk more about the advantages for our clients. Having more stability over monthly housing expenses, being less vulnerable to changing energy costs, and supporting long-term home ownership in our communities is a great place to re-focus the conversation!
As REALTORs we are advocates for home ownership. And either green or traditional – it’s time to help clients focus on the Total Cost of Ownership, not just PITI. We just can’t do our jobs effectively without a greater understanding of energy efficiency in homes!
