Melissa Rich, a realtor with Tierra Antigua Realty, knows this is the perfect time to buy a dream home. With the current low mortgage rates, a transition to home ownership can be a valuable financial move. Rich facilitates her clients home buying or selling experiences by helping them understand the latest and greatest in green home features.
Many homes include green features such as programmable thermostats, LED and compact fluorescent lamps, low-flow faucets, showers and toilets, energy efficient windows and ENERGY STAR appliances. Even if the home does not have all of these green features included, most are relatively inexpensive to implement and can bring huge savings in running expenses.
There are several environmentally conscious options that make a home look and feel great, such as bamboo flooring, recycled glass counter tops and paints with low volatile organic compounds. Deep cleaning with non-toxic products, followed by a splash of sage and essential oils can create a welcoming and healthy home environment. Finding a dream home can be a fun and rewarding experience.
