Atlanta Green Homes
Whether it's environmental concerns, an interest in national energy independence, or just personal economic motivations, more and more home buyers are asking about "going green." But in real estate, what does "going green" really mean? There is talk of "green homes," but how do you know which homes are actually green?
There are a number of local and national green building certification programs to help the home buyer make that determination, including EarthCraft House, Energy Star Homes, LEED for Homes and NAHB National Green Building Program. For more information, our Atlanta Green real estate page gives an overview of each of these green building programs. But how does one put all this information to work in their home search? Well, on most home search web sites, you're out of luck. But here at Intown Elite, our property search engine is actually empowered to help you to find green homes.
Our Atlanta Green homes page displays all the listings in the Atlanta area that are certified in at least one of the above mentioned green building programs. Living in a walkable location promotes better health, a reduction in greenhouse gas, more transportation options, increased social capital and stronger local businesses. So, if you're in the market for a Green Home in Atlanta , check out our Green Homes Atlanta page, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions, or if you would like to schedule a showing.
