Green Homes Can Get You A Bigger Mortgage
Going green isn't just trendy anymore; going green is becoming mainstream. Given cost of heat and electricity these days (and even problems with supply), it just makes sense. Even "conventional" homebuilders are starting to look at green features to help the energy efficiency of their homes.
Here's another new way to benefit by going green: Energy efficient mortgages (EEM) or green mortgages are an option if you purchase an energy efficient home. These mortgages assume that the money you save by going green becomes "new" income to you! In fact, you might be able to qualify for a more expensive home because of the savings, just because it is green.
Something to think about if you are trying to get into the housing market.
