Snapshot of buyers shows focus on energy costs

This chart came across my desk today which some may find interesting. Not surprisingly, many homebuyers focus on the energy saving features available in a home if they are considering "green" features. Midwest and Northeast buyers probably focused on this the most due to high winter heating bills.

Other items that are "environmentally friendly" or even those that may improve indoor air quality are currently important to only a small segment of buyers, likely due to either limited awareness or the perceived low value relative to cost.
