green building How important is green building construction? In large cities like Houston and others around the country, apartment living is on the rise as more people want to live closer to work and amenities. If you ask people who live in rental apartments, they say they are very willing to pay more to live in apartment communities built sustainably, according to the latest Resident Preferences Survey, conducted every year by NMHC.

According to National Real Estate Investor –

“Survey respondents say they are willing to pay an extra $32.64 per month in rent to live in an apartment building that has earned a “green building” certification such as a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) from the U.S. Green Building Council. Three quarters of all respondents – 75 percent – said they were “interested” or “very interested” in these “green” certifications. The certifications can even be the deciding factor for some potential renters.”
