Green Home Building Continues to Grow

Even in a down real estate market, the growth of green-built homes is evident.  The latest market research released by McGraw-Hill Construction reveals this year’s residential green building market to be worth $12 billion to $20 billion (6 percent to 10 percent of the market), with an expectation of it to double in five years.

40% of builders think green building helps them market their homes in a down market.  Buyers want to pay less in monthly utility bills, and own a home that is more comfortable with good indoor air quality–all signs of high performance green-built homes.  The study indicates that quality is the number one reason for building green.  Energy cost savings and doing the right thing for the environment tied for second place.
