Green Building Products How does the use of green building products effect the appraisal value of a home?

Question by bankermama: How does the use of green building products effect the appraisal value of a home?
I recently built a house and was told by an appraiser that the value of the house doesn’t reflect the products used to build. I don’t understand this since I’ve laways heard that Granite countertops increases the value of a home. So which is it?

Best answer:

Answer by Landlord
It does, if they are certified energy star. You need to do the whole thing energy efficient though, not just some things.

Granite counter are an accessory, they do not effect value, however they do make the house more desirable and easier to sell.
