A new study by the University of Texas at Austin found that new homes built to LEED standards are worth an average of $25,000 more in resale value than conventional houses. In partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council, the study focused on homes in Texas built between 2008 and 2016 that met Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Standards, the world's most widely used green-building rating system.
