Going Green? Things to Consider for your Eco-Friendly Home

Sustainable homes are trending in the housing market. According to a report by Gallup in Rocket Mortgage, 52% of Americans surveyed believed the quality of the environment is becoming worse, compared to 43% reported in 2019. As individuals become more aware of the need to reduce their carbon footprint, self-sufficient homes are becoming a priority amongst many, specifically millennials.
