Make your next project more Marketable.
Making our communities ecologically sustainable makes sense.
Are you interested in improving your customer satisfaction? Developers who build green have been reaping the benefits. The are reporting that they have more satisfied customers with fewer call backs.

Think building green will add too much to your bottom line? It is true that building green costs more, but the benefits far outweigh the costs. With new tax incentives from the state, those rebates can be passed directly to your buyer, making your green building more marketable than a conventionally built home.
Falling behind the Curve?
Like many builders, are you trying to build green but don't know where to begin?
Current New Mexico state tax legislation will encourage many home builders to have their homes certified as Build Green New Mexico or LEED-H. By attaining these certifications, builders can get tax credits up to $ 11,000. Eco Terra's energy rating service was created for builders who wish to certify new home construction as Energy Star, Build Green New Mexico and LEED-H. Our ResNet certified personnel will evaluate floor plans, provide a HERS score and conduct air infiltration, insulation and duct system inspections. According to RCLCO's report, 40-50% of homes built in 2010 will have green construction methods.
Will your next building be among them?
