Landlords Go Green

If you aren’t familiar with the term “going green” by now, you must be living in a deep dark dungeon and it’s time to let some energy saving sunlight into your real estate training. “Going green” is an abbreviation that stands for everything environmentally friendly.

There are hundreds of ways to make your rental properties more eco-friendly. Some are definitely more affordable than others. One of the biggest drawbacks for landlords going green is that the rewards for energy conservation go almost exclusively to the tenants unless you offer free utilities with your rent. If you do, I don’t need to convince you to go green because you’ve already seen the cash that it will save you.

In many cases, your true motivation is that a serious percentage of tenants are looking for eco-friendly landlords and expect to find green features in your rental units. This is particularly true of younger and upscale renters.

For existing properties, installing green features begin when repairs and replacements are needed:

  • Installing Energy Star appliances
  • Tank-less hot water heaters
  • Vinyl windows
  • Improved insulation
  • Water barrels
