Hot Pick Home: 'Green' in the Bay Area - December 7, 2020

Every week our data and real estate experts seek out the best homes on the market in the Bay Area. They've even developed a criteria ranking system based on a multitude of factors to aid in their hunt - and so ZeroDown Hot Picks was born.

This is where we'll be sharing the best of the best homes, every week, in the following categories: Smart Value, Green, Restful, and Best Improvements.

A 'Green' home is one that fits a number of the following criteria:

  • Near transit
  • Has solar installation or solar potential
  • Has EV charging pre-installed or is located in an EV-friendly area (with large number of nearby EV stations)
  • Has energy efficient improvements and/or upgrades 
  • Is located in a walking- and biking-friendly neighborhood

The core idea is this: For a homebuyer who is concerned with reducing their environmental impact, does this home offer amenities, and is it located in a place that can help the buyer achieve those goals? We believe the answer is yes.
