Habitat for Humanity Homes in Nashville Make Dreams Come TruePosted by Gary Ashton: RE/MAX on Tuesday, July 24th, 2012 at 8:35am.
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville has just completed the construction of its 500th new home in the Greater Nashville area, lending yet more weight to the argument that affordable, ‘eco-friendly’ homes are becoming something of a highly desirable niche market in the city.
No building company has completed as many energy-saving, LEED-certified homes in the state of Tennessee, something that Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville is inherently proud of. The company, which is recognized as the 18th largest homebuilder in the Nashville area, focuses exclusively on the construction of high quality, affordable homes for low-income families across the state.
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville homes are highly prized, for the exceptional savings they offer homeowners. Utility costs are actually one of the primary factors in determining a home’s affordability, and this is where they outperform all other types of homes by some distance. Energy Star certified Habitat homes’ utility bills typically average an incredibly low $70 a month, meaning that homeowners can save an astonishing $25,000 over the duration of a standard 25-year mortgage.
But it’s not only utility bills that save homeowners money. Habitat homes are funded by millions of dollars in private donations each year, while more than 10,000 volunteers turn out each year to help the company build their homes, allowing the company to keep building costs to an absolute minimum.
Habitat for Humanity also work closely with neighbourhood associations and community leaders across Greater Nashville, something that allows them to acquire building lots at a substantially reduced price – a win-win situation for both Habitat and the communities in which they build their homes.
Providing affordable, energy-saving homes for families that are willing to invest both equity and hard work to make their dream of owning a home come true is a worthy mission that the Nashville community has worked tirelessly to support, as evidence by the fact that Greater Nashville is just one of 16 metropolitan areas in the US to build 500 such homes.
