Green is the New Black in St. Pete

Orange may be the new black at Litchfield Penitentiary, but here in St. Petersburg we’re loving green. For example, the city has just introduced recycling to all residents in the area. But this isn’t the only step toward green living this city has seen. As you can notice from events like the yearly Localtopia (an event that meets­in Williams Park downtown and features local shops, restaurants, music and more) and the weekly Saturday Morning Market, St. Pete businesses are seeing the move toward green and organic trends.

According to the Houston Business Journal, Millennials have grown up in the heart of the green movement. Because of this, they are more interested in small but high-quality homes. Smaller homes not only allow for greener living, but also­more maintainable yard space.

Also according to FloridaRealtors®, buyers are more likely to pay a premium for homes that are environmentally friendly and have lower energy bills. The homes that disclose their energy costs also spend about eight days less on the market.

St. Petersburg is the perfect city for Millennials to find the home of their dreams. With neighborhoods including Historic Uptown, Euclid St. Paul's, Crescent Lake­and the like, Millennials can find the perfect suburban home that is just minutes away from the urban lifestyle. And with St. Pete's­trend toward greener living, it’s the perfect place to join in on the movement.
