Green features: could they help you sell your home faster?

 

Lately, many articles related to the selling of green homes appeared on the internet stating that buyers do not hesitate to invest more in the long-term perquisites brought by these properties, which left us wondering if buying a green home or a property with green features has truly become a trend in the real estate industry. Do people choose to purchase these homes because they really believe and want to embrace that way of living or they only do it because others do it? Regardless of the answer, the truth is that if you plan to sell your green home any time soon, you will not encounter difficulties during the process. However, what if you own the average house and you want to make some updates, such as adding green features. Will it increase the value of your home?

Green updates that will increase the value of your house

Generally, when people state on the internet “We Buy Houses in Katy”, they do not specify if they want the house to be green or have eco-friendly updates, but if you look at the numbers or statistics and you speak with a professional, he will probably confirm that green features will help you sell your home faster. Furthermore, when people decide to put their house on the market, they make improvements focusing on the front or backyard, kitchen counters or appliances, interior design, repairs or replacements, if necessary. Nevertheless, green updates require focusing on other areas or elements of your house. For instance, you could replace exterior doors and add windows with double-pane models. Opt for solar panels and install them on the roof, add insulation, replace existing light bulbs with LEDs and use non-toxic paint for the walls.

Inform buyers about the benefits provided by your green home

Marketing is very important when you are trying to sell a property. People need to know the perquisites or advantages they get after making such a great financial investment. Thus, you should not hesitate when it comes to praising your home and including all the green updates you did. Inform potential buyers about the cost savings and efficiency provided by a green home, not to mention about the positive environmental impact. Sometimes, people need to see actual proofs but this should not represent a problem as long as you can provide utility bills or project savings over a year. They probably already know all these benefits, but is does not hurt to point them out anyway.
