green real estate Asheville journal: green homes and land legacies 

green real estate Asheville: Last week I took a client to see an emerging Eco-Community about 25 minutes from downtown Asheville, NC. it is located in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. I consider it a gem amidst the sparkling Hickory Nut Gorge. Out your back door, you can hike for miles. You can move into the serenity of nature. You can be surrounded by “forever-wild” mountain forests, soaring cliffs and pristine, cascading streams.

In this eco-friendly community land conservation, green-built homes, organic gardening and renewable energy from wind, water, sun, and geothermal sources, you can expect eco-innovation in real time. An heirloom apple orchard and old vineyard is part of the conservation land adjacent to the conservation development.

Of course, this impressed my client who is very much in to the green real estate scene. Perhaps more than this, however, was the notion that here, you even can be part of designing a “net zero energy homes community,” that creates more renewable energy than we use.

"Green" Sustainable Property Asheville Style! It's exciting. 

"Green" Sustainable Property Asheville Style! It is for sale. And it is SO exciting!

Asheville, North Carolina’s creative citizenry including a growing number of NAR GREEN and ECO Certified® Real Estate Consultants have their hearts set on finding “smart" ways to approach healthy choices in both home AND land design and use that enhance a sense of community. Things HAPPEN when people start getting together and talking. And the talk here in the Greater Asheville
area, where "THINGS" already are happening is about making wise choices in terms of GREEN.

While the environmental and social benefits of green buildings to a community are clear, until recently, some real estate professionals and their clients questioned whether green-built buildings, added tangible value to a property. If you read my earlier post you will see a fabulous accounting of just what this means.

In fact, Green Value, an independent research study, has provided in-depth research on the matter. It concluded that a clear link is beginning to emerge between the market value of a building and its green features.
The study combined a review of literature and case studies and found that not only are green buildings good for the environment, provide healthier places to live and more productive places to work, they can command higher prices.

For Asheville REALTORS®, accepting a leadership role in "green-thinking " new ways not only benefit sour ecology and our economy...but all concerned.
GOING GREEN: socially conscious investing keeps on rolling into a
sustainable world you can create today and tomorrow with eco-friendly land where you can build a green house and then help the environment by recycling.
