Each time is a while I get to evaluate some type of energy energy efficient home with built in panels solar, wind, light bulbs, generating hot air and construction of houses. Most of the time, these types of articles will bring you nothing in added value to your home in the Northwest. Do you know why? There is a lag in the databases of the real estate agent and a lack of data in the databases of the MLS and a lack of pure similar sales for these "green" elements
I understand that the market will consider these types of positive improvements. With my experience of professional assessment and after talking to several real estate agents who have listed or sold these types of properties, it is clear that could take the owner 8 to 20 years to get their money back out in terms of energy savings.
In terms of value of the House, your votre maison home be be evaluated like any other House. If the real estate appraiser cannot prove that the market is willing to pay for these types of homes, the value does increase or decrease. In these cases, green homes are trumped by the best thing on the market, similar homes.
Here is a how little I see green houses increasing in value. There must be a full development is important has a size which is a whole community of green houses. Say that a developer to set up a development that only provides green homes. Part of the land is used for the storage of these two RV, but on top of each building, there are solar panels. Perimeter set the development to 10 acres, there was wind turbines. On the roofs of every house in the development, there will be more solar panels. All the houses of development are derived from green products and energy efficient elements. That you get the idea? With a large enough development, I hope, there will be at least one or two sales in support of the value.
The cost of the initial development for this type of development can be 30% more than the cost of regularly built the House. If the market is ready to buy in a development like that, they will pay more for houses like that. It benefits will be reduction of the energy savings and environmental reasons. Negatives can be ugly wind around the property and the acceptance of solar panels located on the home of each and the cost to maintain something like that.
But when it came time to appreciate the houses like that, there will be developments that support this type of technology. There will be comparable sales to select and compare the subject and an appraiser can clearly conclude that the market is will be to pay for the houses in this type of development and outside development. In other words, the evaluator can prove it. This is how to increase the value of green houses.
