Engaging Consumers of All Ages in Sustainable Living, 2015
As part of the Dodge Data & Analytics Report, Green and Healthier Homes: Engaging Consumers of All Ages in Sustainable Living, a survey of 249 home builders and remodelers across the United States revealed that 83% believe that homeowners are willing to pay more for a home that integrates healthy design features. How much more? It depends on age, but these building professionals think at least 1/3 of the population in general would pay at least 5% more. Owners 55 or older would be more likely to pay even more.
The majority of respondents (78%) also reported that indoor moisture control and ventilation (key healthy building features) is “important to improve the performance of a green home.”
