But what’s on your property wish list? Take a look at what those buying a multi-million dollar home are wanting from their next abode.
There has been an increase in the number of buyers looking for sustainable features and materials, from bamboo to solar panels and geothermal heat, and even electric vehicle charging stations. These features will help to get more eyes on a property and boost its chances of selling.
Green roofs are aesthetically pleasing and environmentally friendly. Using vegetation in place of conventional roofing materials also reduces air pollution and absorbs stormwater runoff. They also lower energy costs and even extend the life of the roof’s supporting structure.
Geothermal Heating and Cooling
Like solar panels, geothermal heating and cooling harnesses the forces of nature to provide optimal indoor conditions at any time of year. This technology allows homeowners to make the most luxurious home’s environmental footprint relatively small, even as its design makes a big aesthetic impact.
Vegetable Gardens and Orchards
Vegetable gardens are as good for the planet as they are for the gardener. With increasing interest in organic produce, home vegetable gardens have become a feature of luxury estates, where a scaled-down version of the “farm-to-table” concept can be brought right into the kitchen.
