Green: The Most Attractive Color

While these choices may be more expensive initially, as a commercial investor, you will reap profits over the long-term in cost savings and efficiencies in maintenance. Plus, you’ll rent your property quicker. New or retrofitted buildings are attractive to tenants because:

  • Workers log less sick days and employers receive fewer “sick building” complaints.
  • Conservation and environmental awareness is trending up and on everyone’s mind.
  • The cost savings in utilities can be passed on to your tenants!

Great Business Tax Incentives

There are many tax incentives if you modify your property to meet certain qualifications. Those who make modifications seeking approval or a certain status from the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design or LEED may also qualify for awesome tax bonuses and incentives as well. This is especially true if you own larger buildings because you have more to offer by making environmentally-friendly modifications to them.
