Building A Green Home More Popular Among Home Builders

 Green home construction is growing among both single-family and multi-family home builders. This info was gathered in a free report done by the National Association of Home Builders. It was published in the Green multi-family and single-family homes 2017 smart market brief, conducted by Dodge Data and Analytics.

 At least one third of home builders who were surveyed said that green building is a big part of what they do and sixty percent of their portfolio. They are also expecting this number to increase by half in the upcoming years in both multi-family and single-family sectors. 

 Of those surveyed almost thirty percent of multi-family fall into the "dedicated" green builder category. The number is around twenty percent when it comes to single-family builders, but both expect growth by 2022.

 The builders feel like green building is not a niche business, and they recognize the value green building brings to the market, and are happy to incorporate this into their practice.

 Energy efficiency is the most common method of improving a green home and it's performance, followed by a healthy indoor environment. The report found that a significant number of builders will begin developing net zero homes. In these homes the energy used throughout the building equals the amount of renewal energy created. 

 The survey shows twenty-nine percent of single-family home builder have already built a net zero home in the last two years. That number is expected to rise to forty-four percent in the next two years. Other smart market findings also show the single-family home market is maturing and its all i the numbers.
