Consumers Care About the Environment

With extreme weather events like Hurricane Florence dominating the news and everyday concerns about lessening energy usage, American property owners and communities are more concerned about the environment than ever before. Consumer inclinations for walkable communities and energy-efficient homes are on the rise, according to NAR research. Knowing these preferences, REALTORS® are changing the way they list, market and promote listings to highlight a home’s sustainable features.
