The Advantages of an Eco-Friendly Building

by Anne Graffy 05/05/2019

There are definitely some benefits to going green. When you build green, there are savings generated in the areas of home operations, maintenance, healthcare, and water. These savings can provide you both short, and long-term returns on your investment. You can maximize your economic performance as well as environmental performance when you apply these sustainable building strategies.Here are some advantages of green building that you need to know:

Water Conservation and Energy Efficiency

When you build green, you will not only reduce your dependence on natural resources, but you will also minimize your energy bills and utility bills. A green building saves water and energy use, resulting in a low carbon footprint for your home.

Improved Air Quality 

Improved air quality is one of the benefits of a green building. Fresh air is essential for healthy living and breathing in fresh air is one of the most significant advantages of building green. When you build green, your children, workers, parents, and every other person living or working in your building will enjoy good-quality air, reducing the likelihood of contracting airborne diseases. 

Reduced Carbon Footprint

Another benefit of green building is the reduction of carbon emission into the atmosphere. An excellent way of reducing carbon emission is by keeping your environment and project clean and minimizing the amount of waste you produce. When you do this, you will significantly reduce the release of toxic gases into the atmosphere and contribute to a safer, cleaner environment.Increased Property Value It is worth noting that green buildings are now in high demand because of their sustainable components that significantly reduced maintenance cost. 

Increased Productivity

Green buildings are efficient and well run which helps to improve productivity. When the air is clean, there is a flow of natural light, and energy resources operate efficiently. Workers in a green environment tend to be more productive because their attention is not dividedby stale air or lack of adequate light.

Improved Employee Attendance

When a workplace is environmentally friendly, workers will be excited to go to their place of work. The advantage of an environmentally friendly workplace is that it creates positive vibes and improves the health of workers. Therefore, workers will be happy to work in such an environment and will be eager to go to work every working day.

Be sure to have your agent highlight your home's green features when you are looking to sell to make it more attractive to environmentally conscious buyers, and buyers looking to save money in the long run.

About the Author

When explaining to clients why I am the best fit for their real estate needs, I like to tell them that I am not only their real estate agent, but their business representative as well. With more than three decades of experience working in the corporate world and as an entrepreneur, I have extensive knowledge of how business works and what needs to be done to succeed. Not only has this experience informed the way that I research and keep track of information, it has also taught me everything that there is to know about negotiating and closing sales. For you, as the client, this experience means that I know how to get you the best deal possible on that property you are buying or selling in the Tampa Bay area.

As a successful real estate agent, I pride myself on being an active member of the community. I am dedicated to providing every client with unparalleled customer service and utmost professionalism. I have been a licensed real estate agent serving Pinellas, Hillsborough, and Pasco county since 2002. During this time, I have had the pleasure of working alongside some of the most influential developers and investors in the industry. This working experience has also given me an advanced level of market knowledge when it comes to luxury homes in the Tampa Bay area. I am able to understand and predict changes in the market, as well as help you track down that luxury home that you have always wanted and help you purchase it for a fair price.

Over the course of my time working in real estate, I have been awarded the following accolades:

2003 ReMax Sunset Rookie of the Year

2003 Million Dollar Producer

2003, 2006 ReMax Executive Club Award

2004 and 2005 ReMax 100% Club Award

I have also been a licensed interior designer from 1984 to 1998. This experience has proven itself to be invaluable when it comes to helping clients get an idea of how they want to decorate or renovate the inside of a home. And coincidentally enough, many of the homes that I sold to clients over the years were some of the same houses that decorated and designed nearly two decades ago.

In addition to working real estate and in the corporate sector, I (have been) a member of the following organizations and volunteer groups in the community:

Membership Director of the Gulf Harbors Civic Association

Design Team of Main Street New Port Richey

Eco Broker

On the Green Business Committee of the Florida Green Building Coalition

Member of the Habitat for Humanity Women Build Team

Fundraised for New Directions, an organization dedicated to cancer research

Volunteer at the American Diabetes Association

Big Brother/ Big Sister program

I believe in working closely alongside the community to build better neighborhoods for all, and this is evident in my real estate practice. If you are interested in learning more about property in the Tampa Bay Area or you’d like to move into a home in the community, give me a call at 727-560-1635 to get started.
