Event Description

Avoid These Pitfalls When Marketing Green-Built Homes

Green building is long-lasting, healthy, efficient, and affordable homes. Many people mistakenly believe that green building costs more and thus represents a bad investment. Nothing could be further from the truth. By carefully selecting green building options, builders can save money upfront and for their customers over the long haul. Potentially enormous economics savings to buyers can help make green-built homes a top market choice, and as a result can help distinguish builders, developers, and architects.

Join Dr. Dan Chiras in this 60-minute audio session to know how practical, affordable, and marketable green buildings are. In this program, you will learn:

  • What green building entails—and what it requires of us
  • Why green building makes sense from multiple perspectives—social, economic, and environmental
  • Why green building is the logical choice among builders, architects, and developers
  • How to adopt a holistic economic approach to green building – availing yourself to savings in some areas that offset higher costs in others that ultimately lead to more affordable homes
  • That affordability is a complex equation with savings that accrue to homeowners and builders
  • That the true cost of a home is not the mortgage but the sum of the energy bill and the mortgage—as a result, it typically costs more to build a much less expensive home
  • How green building reduces energy, health, and maintenance costs of homes
  • What green building materials and techniques will save builders and developers and the homeowner money
  • How to successfully market green homes
  • What pitfalls to avoid when marketing green-built homes

  • The many social, economic, and environmental impacts of home building
