VOLUME 10—ISSUE 1 71 THE ORIGINAL RELOCATION GUIDE — CHARLOTTE | VOLUME 2 — ISSUE 2 BUILDING OR BUYING A HOME But there's also something to be said for the security of comparison shopping, walking through a house, and "kicking tires that are already inflated" before you sign on the dotted line. To further muddy the waters is the unbelievable number of underpriced foreclosure homes that have appeared on the market over the past few years. This may once again make buying even more attractive. Perhaps the single most enticing part of choosing to build your home as opposed to buying is the chance to employ green technology from the ground up. This practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient is gaining momentum every day. Green technology can complement and even expand the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort. Taking advantage of green building tax credits aids in not only short-term spending but over the long haul in much lower costs in the future. Thanks to improvements made in building processes and materials, homes built today are 100% more energy-efficient than homes built, for instance, in the 70s. The advances include more durable roof coverings, better insulated windows, increased amount of insulation, plus high-efficiency heating, cooling, and water heating devices and equipment. Another thing to remember about green building is that, as with any type of structure, it comes from the bottom up. Green homes do more than just provide an economical ways to heat water, keep out the cold, or recycle some landfill-destined materials; they incorporate environmental considerations and resource efficiency into every step of the process including how to minimize environmental impact. Once you have decided which path to take to your new home, you will likely need a quality mortgage firm. McLean Mortgage has achieved a position of leadership within the industry by combining experi- enced leadership, cutting edge technology and a team culture which is dedicated to delivering first-in-class service to the real estate community. Their mission is to help borrowers realize their dream of home own- ership through providing the best in class mortgage solutions, innovative processes, and superior, person- alized service. Whether you decide to build or buy, or somehow blend the two for your new home, nothing helps as much or saves you as much as doing your homework first. Remember, that starts well before calling a real- tor to start opening doors and before you start dream- ing of what might be.
