It's true...it pays to be green!

It pays to make your home eco-friendly!

Being eco-friendly can be profitable for your Carlsbad home

It feels good to be green, to reduce your carbon footprint.  But, does it make you money? 

Many people are turning their houses into energy-efficient homes.  The question is, will they get the money they spend to convert their homes back?  According to an article in the LA Times, the answer is yes. 

A study was done involving California homes sold between 2007 and 2012.  All of these homes were given the green-certified label.  On average, these homes sold for 9% more than similar homes that were not green-certified.  In addition, in areas where there was a higher concentration of hybrid vehicle registrations, more people were willing to pay a premium for a green-certified home. 

When deciding if you are going to convert your home to a green-certified home, consider the costs involved versus the benefits.  Don’t just think about the possible future financial gain but also the reduced energy use you will have.  

It is great to see that it pays to be green!
