Is SUSTAINABILITY the new “must-have” home amenity?



This has become a growing trend around the country and especially here in San Diego.

What is sustainability at home?  A sustainable home is one that is built or retrofitted in a way that conserves resources, optimizes energy and water use, and that will last longer with quality systems.

Here are ten things you can do to have a more eco-friendly home:

  1. Invest in energy efficient appliances.

  2. Install a drip irrigation system.

  3. Add solar to your home

  4. Install high-performance windows.

  5. Recycle and reuse

  6. Replace fluorescent light bulbs with LED or CFL bulbs

  7. Create a compost bin for leftover food.

  8. Plant an energy efficient vegetable garden

  9. Switch to smart power strips

  10. Use cold water when washing you clothes.

I believe that in the future, more homebuyers are going to be looking for eco-friendly features in the homes they want to buy, and as such, those that are well-equipped for sustainability will likely sell for a higher price.
