Tools and information to help you through the Green Building process. Master Builders' BuiltGreen, EnergyStar, and LEED checklists allow you to decide just how green you want to be or can afford. They also provide certification of your Green Home which should enhance the resale value of your home.
If two houses are the same price, built at the same time, which would you buy, a BuiltGreen - 3Star or EnergyStar home or one without certification. It makes a difference in your monthly utility bills and should help you qualify for a larger mortgage.
