Green Real Estate Mortgage Leads

Green homes and green buildings require financing. Connecting green builders with real estate buyers often hinges on finding a real estate mortgage. Those mortgages can be more affordable when energy budgets are reduced, when health can be enhanced with low-VOC finishes, and incentives are used to reduce costs.

Green real estate is in high demand by consumers and business people who are recognizing the productivity and health benefits of indoor air quality, low energy lighting and appliances, and low-water use landscaping. Green building saves the owner money over the long term, and can reduce monthly budgets, allowing them to qualify for the space they need.
