Sustainable Master-planned Communities
Earth Day is only a few weeks away! So, it’s the perfect time to share how HHHunt Communities is living its Brand Promise of being a provider of Quality Products and Services by building sustainable master-planned communities. According to the National Association of Home Builders, four of the top 10 features that home builders look for in a new home focus on energy efficiency. Additionally, 88% of home buyers share that energy-efficiency is a top influencer when searching for a new home.
When you’re searching for a new home community, what green and energy-efficient features are you looking for? We believe communities that protect and restore the natural environment and conserve resources are important.
Each of our communities in Richmond and Raleigh are built “green” meaning the building process includes products and practices to create a home that is a smarter, safer, and stronger choice for the environment. Because we take the environment into account when building our master-planned communities, our communities are more sustainable.
We strive to save as many well-established trees as possible. As a result, we focus on creating green spaces that include walking trails, community parks, open lawn areas, and more. We feel it’s important to include many natural elements in each community and neighborhood. Jonathan Ridout, Vice President of Real Estate Development with HHHunt Communities, wrote an article in Professional Builder Magazine explaining that homebuyers are demanding green features in their homes and neighborhoods now more than ever.
In addition to community amenities, we aim to exceed standards for energy efficiency and water conservation. It is through these efforts that we provide environmentally friendly and ecologically responsible new home communities for homeowners to enjoy. Recycling is offered at each HHHunt Community when available by the locality. Homeowners can also choose to include energy-efficient products in their homes, like Energy Star-qualified Appliances, programmable thermostats, CFL Lighting, and more.
Sustainable homes and communities provide up to $700 a year in savings on utility bills! For example, one of our signature builders, HHHunt Homes offers efficient home furnaces that operate at 10% higher than the standard furnace to improve your comfort and help save you money. Additionally, HHHunt Homes’ air conditioning system cools your home by using less electricity.
