A National Association of Home Builders survey found that between 2007 and 2015, homebuyers remained fairly consistent in their preferences for green features.

Of the 150 homebuyers surveyed, 90% said Energy Star appliances were essential or desirable, along with Energy Star windows, which received an 87% desirability rating. Also rated as highly desirable were a whole-home Energy Star rating and insulation that surpasses code requirements.
