Going “green” has been a hot topic for several years now, but a new survey shows that many builders are now making it a top priority for new constructions.

Among the different features being favored are energy efficiency, indoor air quality, water conservation, and material conservation.


Green Features In New Home Building

The survey found that of the 62% of single-family developers are rolling out 15% of their projects as “green-friendly.” Further,  nearly 1/5 of single-family developers are executing 90% of their projects with a green focus. It seems that slowly but surely the green trend is making its way into the top-of-mind for developers, as more and more consumers opt for eco-friendly residence.s

Despite the fact that 3 out of 4 single-family home builders say that energy efficiency is a feature they are pursuing with making their homes greener, according to the survey only 11% of single-family home builders say they are constructing homes that are greener in 2013 than those constructed in 2011.
