Going green is not always fruitful when it comes to Highlands NC real estate.  Many builders and owners of homes undergoing a remodel choose environmentally friendly features and systems as a way of reducing their carbon footprint and simply being kind to the community.  In short, many people believe strongly in living a greener existence.  The choice to go green should be carefully considered when selling the Highlands property is on the horizon however.

Green options do not always pay off.  Certainly there are systems that pay for themselves over time, from geothermal technology to solar panels, time being the operative word.  If you will not be spending the time in your home simply having an environmentally friendly system in place may not add value, although it may add appeal.  Choosing your improvements wisely and making educated decisions is of the essence.
