Sellers: Hawaii Homebuyers Are Looking For Green Options

Sellers…are you thinking of selling soon? Most of my Buyers are looking for green options. The most popular questions I get when showing buyers homes here in Oahu are:

  • Does this home have solar panels (PV) for photovoltaic solar panels?
  • Are the windows old or new?
  • How old are the appliances, are they energy savers?

Here is a sample of what the solar panels look like on homes in the Hoakalei community (MLS# 201522331)


Some Highlights

  • 11% of new homebuyers stated “energy efficient features” as the reason for their purchase
  • The most popular remodeling projects done for energy efficiency were insulation upgrades, HVAC replacements, and vinyl & wood window installations
  • Research shows that word preference does make a difference when it comes to attracting “green buyers”

If you are thinking of selling and would like to review your options, please contact me.

Aloha for now! See you next time!
