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

Andaz Hotel Wailea-Maui’s Amazing New Oceanfront Resort


Construction has Begun on the New Andaz Hotel Wailea! Here is some insight into this unique chain of Luxury Resort Hotels soon to welcome visitors in beautiful and exclusive Wailea, Maui Hawaii!

It’s official! The cob-webbed Wailea Renaissance hotel on Maui is now slated to be a Hyatt-branded Andaz hotel after $90 million in renovations and two years. The property, which is currently owned by Starwood Capital, was previously scheduled to be a Baccarat Resort, before the downturn in economy forced a pull-out.

ANDAZ WAILEA, MAUI
The Andaz Wailea Resort and Residences will feature 255 rooms, 35 suites and six four-bedroom villas. Andaz Wailea will include an assortment of world-class amenities including:

•A three course meal specialty restaurant
•Several relaxing outdoor pools
•A 15,000 square-foot spa
•State-of-the-art fitness facility


Andaz Wailea Resort and Residences will be located along 600 feet of Mokapu Beach in one of the most sought after leisure and resort destinations in North America. The Wailea master plan includes a 1.2 mile-long oceanfront beach path connecting all of its world class beaches, a premier shopping center, distinguished restaurants and a 54-hole golf club and a tennis club.

“The opportunity to develop a world-class resort along one of Hawaii’s most desirable beaches is unique, and we are delighted to partner with Starwood Capital, a company with a long history of designing and building world-class hotel and resort properties,” said Hyatt Hotels Corporation President and Chief Executive Officer Mark S. Hoplamazian. “Andaz Wailea will be a great addition to Hyatt’s resort portfolio and an important new market for Andaz.”

MORE THAN A HOTEL
At Andaz, we’ve set the stage to indulge your creativity with a local venue illuminated by a kaleidoscope of culture embedded in our walls.

Each hotel features the most adventurous, globally influenced design, yet also inhabits the sights, sounds and tastes of its surrounding neighborhood. There’s a creative vibe of a city hot spot infused with a worldly sense of something bigger. And a pulse centered around what’s going on inside and outside its doors. With it comes the authentic, intimate feeling that you’re in a place quite unlike anywhere else in the world. Come share your passions with like-minded individuals. And experience a truly local point of view.
