All over the United States, increasing numbers of people are deciding to purchase Eco-Friendly houses. No matter whether you’re looking for a new home to move into or just another piece of property, or whatever your personal situation may be, an eco-friendly house is a great option. Here are five reasons why it makes sense to buy an eco-friendly house as soon as possible.
1) You Save Money On Utilities
Who doesn’t want to save money on their utility bills? In California, the average homeowner pays around $100 a month for utilities. Given the signature Prime Five Homes sustainable design and efficiency of water and electricity usage, utility costs are greatly reduced.
2) Lower Taxes
You can receive a variety of tax credits for merely owning an eco-friendly home! This, along with the money saved on utilities, allows for economic returns over a short amount of time. Here is a quick list of some of the tax benefits that come with living in an eco-friendly home.
3 ) It’s a Great Investment
Eco-friendly housing is the future of real estate. As the cost of living increases, and our society becomes more environmentally conscious, eco-friendly homes will see an increase in demand. For example, one of our properties recently featured in Forbes Magazine will be significantly more expensive in the near future, due to the solar panels installed and other innovative environmental features.
4) The Materials
Organic and recycled materials are used to build eco-friendly homes. Materials such as reclaimed wood, bamboo, stone, and high-performance windows promote and directly contribute to environmental responsibility through reduced waste and energy. In addition to this benefit, these materials are extremely sturdy and resistant to deterioration over time.
5) It’s Our Duty
As co-habitants of this planet, it is our collective responsibility to look out for our home and improve the environment around us. Everyone has the capability of doing that, either by living in an eco-friendly home or adopting eco-friendly appliances. Moreover, as our home state of California faces a drought, it is all the more imperative we conserve on our basic resources.
