If I am a first time home buyer can I get a bigger tax break if I purchase an eco friendly home?

    Not technically, if you purchase it off a lot or as is. However, there are a few ways around this (see links for more specific information). If you are considering building a house, you can earn energy tax credits for having them install energy safe appliances, doors, windows, and heating/cooling. Also, you could save some money buying a less efficient home, and spend the difference (along with earning taxbreaks) for renovating the inefficient appliances within. Possible costing you less than an initially eco-friendly home AND earning taxbreaks.

    I hope this helped!
