Well, we here at EcoUrban have been peddling our green homes and communities for a couple of years and can finally answer the question of "How many have you sold?" with a bit more confidence after the sale of 3105 Magnolia on September 26th to two young attorneys who moved from a loft downtown. The owners were able to get a great deal thanks to the pleasant state of the real estate market and I am confident they will see a solid return on their urban, green investment - especially when we finalize the LEED for Homes certification upon the completion of the attached townhome at 3103 Magnolia.
In addition to the future value the owners will hopefully realize as the market improves...they will immediately see HUGE monthly savings with their 14 SEER high-performance heat pump, EnergyStar windows and appliances all on top of 2x6 modular construction with icynene foam insulation.
If you are feeling a bit jealous...there are still two existing EcoUrban homes available. Next door to our first sale is a mirrored floor plan with solid Grass Elements bamboo, stainless steel EnergyStar appliance and an opportunity to improve the HVAC efficiency with a higher performing heat pump (still to be installed) all for $179,900. And if living in a LEED for Homes Platinum certified home (The 10th in the country) seems intriguing our display home is still available for $209,900 and I can provide documentation of over $290K in disbursements related to the building and development of this awesome 1900 sqare foot home with 3 beds, 2.5 baths, Varenna kitchen, bamboo throughout, native landscaping and a 2-car garage. Our loss...is your gain!
Thanks for all the support and interest and I look forward to building on the success of our first sale!
