How to choose an Eco-friendly House

There’s no doubt that eco-friendly living is the way forward, and it is currently the best time for you to jump into this kind of lifestyle. However, at first, making that change can be a little scary. Below, we selected a few things to keep in mind when choosing an eco-friendly house, to make the task a little easier for you!

Building Green vs Buying Green

Every house is energy-efficient and eco-friendly one way or the other, which usually saves a considerable amount of money. But buying a home does not give you the freedom to use your own ideas on the house from the ground up, as opposed to building a house according to your plan. This is, logically, because some things just don’t fit within the house’s current structure and could bring problems in the long run. Sometimes taking the patient route and carefully planning your eco-house from the very beginning and building it is the best solution possible.

However, don’t rule out renovation

There are times where your ideas and concepts do fit within a house’s current structure: If you have a non-eco-friendly house and you want to convert it into an eco-friendly unit, you can spend money on modifying the house based on your ideas, like adding solar panels, solar roofs, or some kind of biodigester. For smaller (yet important!) changes, you could replace an old light bulb with the latest LED ones, which are proven to consume less energy. Note that reworking your house could cost a significant hole in your bank account, but in the long run, it is definitely worth it.

Don’t be afraid of relocation

Is living in an eco-friendly house a top priority for you? If the answer is yes, then you need to consider relocating to a location where it is possible, or a place already dedicated to an eco-friendly lifestyle, such as agrihoods, eco-villages, or ecovillas. Sometimes, this would mean that you would have to relocate to a different region. Don’t be afraid of moving into a different place! With change always comes opportunity, and if you’re looking for a new lifestyle choice, it’s the perfect time to tackle this kind of change!

Find a green agent you can trust

Now that green living is becoming more and more popular, getting in touch with an agent that specializes in this kind of market can make the whole process a lot less stressful. You can organize a meeting or call where you discuss your ideas and talk through the whole process with someone who already knows the market and how to guide you so this change is easier to take on.


In summary, explore your options and don’t lock yourself out of possibilities; becoming more eco-friendly does not have to be a tedious task and can be done stress-free if done correctly or with a good agent to guide you through the process.
