The Most Effective Green Home Changes for Sellers


The Most Effective Green Changes for Sellers
Quick, Easy, and Inexpensive Green Changes

Green remodeling efforts can make a home stand out on the market.A Green Home Builders and Remodelers study released in February 2012 indicated that the market for green homes is only going to continue to grow.

“Green homes comprised 17% of the overall residential construction market in 2011 and are expected to grow to between 29% and 38% of the market by 2016. By value, this equates to a five-fold increase, growing from $17 billion in 2011 to $87-$114 billion in 2016, based on the five-year forecast for overall residential construction.” LINK TO ARTICLE

The study also pointed to an increase in green home remodeling, something that can definitely help a listed home set itself apart from others on the market. In fact, according to NAR, greening up a listing can improve its chances of selling faster:

“Slow-selling homes could benefit from a green makeover. Take time to educate your home sellers on the benefits of making key energy-efficient upgrades to roofing, insulation, and heating and cooling systems. Smart targeted investments could revitalize the listing and attract green-conscious homebuyers.”


Green Home Upgrades-Lot of options for any budget
■Install a programmable thermostat, which can be programmed to heat or cool the house to different temperatures throughout the day to save on heating/cooling costs.
■Switch to Solar or tankless water heaters
■ENERGY STAR®-rated appliances and light fixtures which can help lower electricity bills.
■Cut heating and cooling resource usage by adding insulation in the home’s attic.
■Windows and doors can be replaced with newer, more energy-efficient models.
■Switch out showerheads for low-flow versions to reduce water usage.
■Repaint with Low-VOC Paints
■Plant a Garden or Fruit Trees
■Plant shade producing landscaping around windows
■Switch to CFL lighting

Grand Wailea $250m Renovation & Expansion

*excerpts from this post from The Maui News, USA TODAY ONLINE

Maui’s luxurious Grand Wailea resort – part of Hilton’s Waldorf Astoria brand – is officially moving forward with a $250 million renovation and expansion.The renovation will add 300 rooms and expand the resort’s pool areas.

The expansion will include the construction of a new, four-story and two-story extension of the hotel’s Molokini Wing, two- and three-story wing additions to its Lagoon Wing, a new Waikea Mauka Wing, a new guest wing and additional parking stallsThe expansion will bring the total number of rooms to 1,100.


Current location of Humuhumunukunukuapuaa Restaurant and Lagoon will be replaced by the expansion

The hotel’s plans were initially approved in 2009, but intervenors sought to reduce the height of the planned expansion and wanted more extensive archaeological testing on its grounds. The issues were resolved through mediation and paved the way for Tuesday’s approval of the project.

The Grand Wailea is one of the premier resorts in the world and the renovations and expansion will allow it to remain competitive in the luxury hotel business. Work on the hotel will also provide much needed relief to a local construction industry that was savaged by the recession.

While no starting date has been given for the work, it is estimated the whole project will take five to six years to complete.

The 20-year-old resort currently has 1,500 employees.

Committing to this project shows a strong belief by the Grand Wailea that the visitor industry will continue to recover and thrive on Maui. It is the type of vote of confidence that should inspire others to invest here.

In a 4/13 USA TODAY article, managing director of the Grand Wailea, Matthew Bailey was interviewed about the expansion and what is means for guests…

“We have renovated most spaces of the hotel over the years, with the rooms redone as recently as three years ago,” he says. “It’s important for us to reinvent ourselves, to stay top of mind.”

The goal, he says, is to stay relevant in a rapidly changing and increasingly competitive world.
