The Value Equation for Sustainable & Resilient Real Estate

Will Your Home Become Obsolete?

Learn Newest Sustainable Real Estate/Housing Trends

This education session was developed by Kara Jonas, Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (MEEA) and Nathan Kipnis, Nathan Kipnis, FAIA LEED AP BD+C, NextHaus Alliance and Kipnis Architecture + Planning, and explains how, in today’s real estate market, sustainable design can significantly increase the value of a property.

This session will explain these facts:

  • Eco-friendly homes are regularly listed and sold at higher prices than conventional houses
  • Green design residences average higher final sales prices than traditionally built ones
  • Green-certified single-family residences sell for almost 9% more than houses without an official label
  • Buyers are willing to pay more for sustainability because they recognize the long-term economic and environmental benefits
  • Buyers are specifically interested in luxury properties offering both smart home and green design features
  • Demand for energy efficient residential listings is on the rise, with more people interested in green design than in previous years
  • Energy efficient or high-performance properties cost more to build, but the cost of construction will be made up for when sold
  • Market premium of sustainable homes more than made up for the cost of their development
