Happy Earth Day! What better way to celebrate than to revel in our greenness here in the Pacific Northwest? New data from Redfin shows that both downtown Bellevue and Columbia City are among the top 10 greenest neighborhoods across the U.S.
To make the rankings, Redfin looked at homes for sale on their website to find which listings had 'green' features like solar panels, low-flow faucets, dual-pane windows, energy efficient appliances, and environmental rating programs like LEED and ENERGY STAR.
They chose their winners based on the number of these listings compared to the total number of listings in each neighborhood.
