Green is affordable, Emerald for less than 160k

Phoenix is the nation’s leader for remodeled green homes that achieve Emerald certification as verified by the NAHB Research Center. There are 9 Emerald certified remodels in the United States. Six of the Emerald certified homes are branded G Homes, five of which are located in Phoenix.

The G Home program is a comprehensive tool for agencies and investors, and is intended to improve the remodel process and market performance.

The most recent remodel to complete the G Home program is owned by Rocking Horse Redevelopment and is located in Phoenix, at 1722 W Heatherbrae Drive. The remodel achieved Emerald certification, which is the highest green rating a home can receive. The Emerald rating was accomplished by reducing energy and water use by over 50%, and installing features that improve indoor air quality. The house is also centrally located, and will be listed for an affordable price, less than $160,000.

“When done right, green can be affordable,” says Rob Anderson of Rocking Horse Redevelopment. “We have renovated over twenty homes in the Phoenix and Denver markets, and making them green is something we are passionate about. Experience has taught us that the key to a successful project is delivering a reasonably priced home that performs and looks better than its counterparts.”

A first look of 1722 W Heatherbrae and catered reception, will take place on September 8, 2011 from 5 – 7pm. RSVP to
