Financial Advantages of SaferBuilding
Dear Sammi SaferBuilder,
We have a large building for which having good cash flow is essential to our success. I read that we can potentially increase the property value by 10% if we maintain the building using SaferBuilding&trade materials and methods.
Can you explain the financial advantage to practicing SaferBuilding™ ?
Practical Real Estate Investor
If you were a tenant, would you rather live in a building with toxic residue
from termite treatment or one in which the termites were killed with non-toxic and less toxic methods?
Doesn't it make sense that a property without toxic residue would be worth more than one with toxic residue? In certain neighborhoods
(SaferBuilding™ Neighborhood Environmental Disclosure) and advertised properly, our experience is that owners can expect roughly an additional 10% in rental fees for units maintained as SaferBuilding™ maintained environments.
We don't mean to suggest that you raise rents on existing tenants, but rather when units become available, get the SaferBuilding™ Certificate of Good Standing and advertise it as such.
Interest in designing, building, and occupying more environmentally sensitive structures is growing rapidly. This brings together health and community concerns with building design and constructions concerns.
Get the building a SaferBuilding™ Certification and post it
to ensure that prospective tenants know that you practice SaferBuilding™.
While some maintenance costs may be slightly higher, they are
generally insignificant compared to the increase in building value (building
value is based upon annual rent times a multiplier). You can increase property values and be environmentally friendly at the same time.
