According to an article in USA Today, green-certified homes sell for 9% more than regular homes in California. 

According to the University of California research department, single-family homes with green certifications sold for an average of $34,800 more! These statistics were taken from comparable homes from 2007-2012 when average California home was $400,000. 

The study finds the premium is also highest in the hottest places, suggesting buyers value green labels because of the lower utility bills. 1.6 million home sales were looked at, including 4,300 that earned certifications from Energy Star, GreenPoint Rated or the US Green Building Council’s LEED for Homes program.
