Great Southern Homes Wins ‘Best Green Builder’ in the Upstate

For the third year in a row, Great Southern Homes is named ‘Best Green Builder’ in the Best of the Upstate awards, sponsored by Greenville News.

As one of the Southeast’s fastest-growing builders and Builder Magazine’s 45th largest builder in the country, Great Southern Homes knows the housing market better than anyone. Since the company’s advent in 2004, they’ve built homes on the solid foundation of exceptional quality, industry-leading construction standards, and brilliant energy-smart and cost-efficient features. Simply put, ‘green building’ is at the heart of Great Southern Homes’ communities and success.

As standard features, Great Southern Homes includes numerous ‘green’ elements to ensure each home operates with energy efficiency and cost savings. Through their use of superior insulation and designated GreenSmart features, eco-friendly living is achieved. GreenSmart features include tankless water heaters, programmable thermostats, HERS Rating testing, Energy Star appliances, water-conserving shower heads and faucets, Low-E Windows, and Water Conserving appliances – just to name a few. A detailed list of GreenSmart features can be found on Great Southern Home’s website.

Oftentimes homebuilders find it challenging to merge attainable price points with energy-saving features – but not Great Southern Homes. They have prioritized building as efficiently as possible, and the Upstate has made it clear that this approach is highly desirable for homebuyers alike.

“We are proud to partner with builders such as Great Southern Homes that prioritize making an affordable and accessible eco-friendly product,” said Stephen Edgerton, President and CEO of Coldwell Banker Caine. “Their dedication to their customers and the community at large is evident through this award.”
