It’s now official! We are very proud to announce that the CAGBC (Canadian Green Building Council) has officially awarded Beachaus I and Beachaus II their LEED PLATINUM status in recognition of their achievement in environmental building and design.
Only 3 homes in the lower mainland, and 7 in Western Canada have achieved PLATINUM status to date, and the team at InHaus is extremely proud to be part of such a distinctive group.
Over the past four years we have been following the development of a number of single family “green” homes in Portland, Oregon. Portland pretty much boasts the highest concentration of certified homes (ie: LEED, Earth Advantage, Energy Star) in the northwestern US. As these homes have been built, sold, and even resold, a strong pattern is emerging that the resale values of certified green homes dramatically outperform standard non-green homes of similar age and size.
According to the Earth Advantage Institute, existing homes with sustainability certification sold for an amazing 30 percent more than homes without. This isn’t an overnight phenomena, as the resale data shows the values have been increasing year over year, for the last 4 years that they have been able to track the data.

We feel that this is great news for our prospective home buyers. Not only do they have the knowledge that they live in a low-impact, ultra efficient & high quality home – they can also be assured that they made a wise investment from a future resale perspective.
