One Green house sells within days for nearly two million dollars (520 Clipper). The other Green house languishes on the market, is reduced twice, and is still available for about a million (338 Holladay).
The owner/builder of the second house draws the conclusion that people could “care less” about being green (despite the success of the first). But we suggest that it might be the design, location, and fact that based on the marketing materials (above) and positioning, we didn’t have a clue that this was supposed to be a “Green” house (unlike the first).
We believe that most people in San Francisco want to be “Green.” But that very few are willing to do so at the expense of good design, quality, or
utility location. And we really can’t blame them.
