Resale Values

In current real estate markets, chances are good that a straw bale home will receive a lower resale value estimate than its frame-walled equivalent. However, low appraisals do not necessarily mean lower resale prices. Home buyers looking for a strong, unique, and super-insulated house may decide that the attractions of a straw bale house are worth more to them than its appraisal indicates. As a side beneft,lower official appraisals often mean lower property taxes.

Since straw bale building is relatively recent, very few homes have traded hands on the real estate market. However, those that have typically sell for the owner's asking price and within a short time frame. Sometimes it's an advantage to be selling something unique!
