Going Green May Help Sell Your House Faster

A new report from Zillow finds that updating your home with eco-friendly or eco-resistant features may help sellers get a better price for their house on the market as well as sell it up to 10 days faster. 

At the top of the list are electric vehicle charging stations (9.5 days faster), double pane windows (6.9 days faster), and seismic-resistant features (19 days faster) that all help sell a home faster than homes without. Also on the list are tankless water heaters (2 days faster), drought-resistant landscaping (9.2 days faster), and smart sprinkler systems (4.9 days faster).

According to Zillow, their research found that buyers are also seriously considering the possibility of flooding (55%), tornadoes (41%), hurricanes (35%), and earthquakes (29%) when choosing a home. The increasing frequencies at which these events, along with other natural disasters, are occurring means buyers are paying a premium on homes that have these features to protect themselves and their investment.
