Builder Trend


Driven by the Spirit of Community

For the past three decades, Chattanooga has experienced a modern renaissance.

Long regarded as little more than a tourist town — and once singled out as the most polluted city in America — Chattanooga has become the envy of countless cities across the globe.

By blending a sense of history with a focus on innovation — and harnessing its potential as a hub for both tech and recreation — Chattanooga has transformed itself into a forward-thinking community where more and more people want to live, work, and play.
Since our humble beginnings in 2008, GreenTech Homes has been driven by the same spirit that’s propelled Chattanooga’s modern resurgence.

And just like the Scenic City, fresh ideas inspire the communities we build.

For us at GreenTech Homes, “green” means incorporating stronger materials and quality, energy-efficient products at every stage of construction. We’re constantly researching advances in technology that can improve the look, feel, and durability of each home we build, as well as enhance the quality of life for each homeowner.

But while we take pride in creating inspired designs and greener builds, we are less focused on the sticks and bricks and more on the hearts inside our homes.

As Chattanooga has come of age as a community, GreenTech Homes has also found its true calling as we’ve embraced the opportunity to become true community builders. 

For us, community building is more than just a choice. It’s a passion that drives us to be a responsible steward of each new development we build in a region we care deeply about. 

All too often, home building means subpar quality, suburban sprawl, and war with the environment.

We believe we can do better.

At GreenTech Homes, we’re passionate about redefining our industry. 

We don’t simply build homes. We craft communities to fit a wide range of families, lifestyles, and cultures. 

Our big front porches, resort-style pools, dog parks, community fire pits, and shared green spaces spark a sense of togetherness among friends who’ll become family. And our walking trails and the trees we plant throughout our communities mark our commitment to caring for the land we build on.

But no feature is more important than our homeowners, who share our ideals, and who’ve come from all walks near and far to join in our vision.

Community is the greatest thing we can hope to find. But it’s even greater when it finds us.

It found us. We hope it finds you, too.

Chattanooga Community Lifestyle

Chattanooga Community Lifestyle

A beautiful home is only the first step — it’s community that makes life truly enjoyable year after year. GreenTech Homes are the perfect setting for an active lifestyle brimming with fun, entertainment, and relaxation in both urban and natural surroundings.  Explore all the wonderful features GreenTech community residents get to enjoy in the greater Chattanooga area!

Proximity to Nature

Every so often we need to step away from the hustle and bustle of life and immerse ourselves in fresh air. Chattanooga has plenty of greenery and the well-planned infrastructure to enjoy nature year-round.

GreenTech communities offer nearby and even on-site access to bike paths and walking trails. This makes it easy to get away from life’s business on a regular basis. Go for a trail run or just relax and soak up the sunshine in one of many peaceful outdoor areas. Don’t miss the famed 13-mile Riverwalk right here in Chattanooga.

City Lifestyle

From quick trips to the market or skipping cooking to eat out — Chattanooga offers plenty of options. Great food, drinks, shops and your daily needs are all covered and in close proximity to our Green Tech communities. Our communities are designed with easy access to convenient shopping and vibrant night activities. From local pubs to historical museums, street life in the downtown area has something to inspire and entertain everyone.

Places to Stay Active

The ideal neighborhood life is already built into GreenTech communities. Well-maintained amenities like playgrounds, parks, pools and clubhouses facilitate casual gatherings and make it easy to enjoy all kinds of leisure activities! With an emphasis on creating safe, healthy communities in Chattanooga, Harrison, Soddy Daisy and Hixson, Green Tech considers the comfort and convenience of all ages, individuals and families.

Front-Porch Living

Evenings are best spent relaxing on the front porch. With average highs above the 70’s for more than half the year, Chattanoogans enjoy great weather and a fairly low occurrence of rain. Chattanooga is known for communities with safe, peaceful streets and friendly neighbors. A city that reinvented itself in the 1980’s as clean and vibrant, Chattanooga still maintains an emphasis on traditional values and homestyle living.

Greentech takes pride in preserving the environment and caring for family traditions and quality of life. Building friendly, sustainable neighborhoods with access to outdoor and urban amenities is at the core of our success. Make the switch to Green Tech and experience the best of Chattanooga.


Enjoying the 2020 Football Season from Home

Enjoying the 2020 Football Season from Home 

There’s so much to enjoy about fall, and football definitely makes the top of the list! Sporting events may be at limited capacity this year, but you can still create that same excitement and atmosphere for the big game in the comfort of your GreenTech home! Here are a few tips to make your at-home spectator experience a smash.

Upcoming Games

We’ve got some amazing teams to keep up with here in Tennessee! Whether you’re an NFL fan or you support our local colleges and universities, there’s no shortage of games to catch this fall. The first step in planning your football festivities is to know what games are on the docket.

Make sure you don’t miss any upcoming events — here are the schedules you’ll want to check for our state’s football season:

Backyard Tailgate

With all the COVID restrictions, one common theme for get-togethers is that outdoor events are safest. So get your GreenTech backyard ready with the grill, beer and snacks! Bring all of that pre-game energy and excitement to your own backyard with a tailgate gathering.

Fulfill your tasty pregame cravings with a classic menu of finger foods and top tailgating bites. You could even throw in some rival team-themed snacks. Enjoy recipes that represent every team in the NFL.

After the pregame interviews and eating wraps up, make sure your yard is set up to watch the game. An outdoor viewing experience is easier and more affordable than you might expect! Invest in a basic outdoor projector, screen and soundbar to make your backyard gathering feel like the real-deal.

Watching the Game 

Watching football at home means finding ways to make your living room environment similar to a real stadium experience. Surround sound is the first step in creating the right mood. Use your surround sound to feel like you’re at the actual even by pumping in some artificial crowd noise. With extra cheering and chanting, you’ll feel all the game-day energy and forget you’re even at home!

You could even use a Titans playlist to pump up the energy throughout the game. Grab some balloons, banners and other NFL-brand decor for the finishing touches to make your home feel just like Nissan Stadium.  

Virtual Rivalry 

Sporting events are all about friendly rivalries. Where else can you get away with a little trash talk while backing up your favorite team? Do you have friends or family who are fans of an opposing team? It’s always more enjoyable to watch with a group, so get on a Facetime or Zoom call during the game. Experiencing the play-by-plays together and exchange some smack talk to keep the game exciting. And don’t forget to deck out your space and wear your team gear!  

Watching football season at home is more enjoyable in a space you love. If you’re looking to upgrade life in Chattanooga, TN, contact our team today!

What’s the Average Cost of a New Home in Chattanooga?

What’s the Average Cost of a New Home in Chattanooga?

Buying a home is always an exciting prospect! There’s nothing like the anticipation of getting settled and making memories in your new space. But before you get to the fun stage of settling in, there are countless details to hash out. 

Finding the perfect home can be stressful and building the perfect home comes with challenges. Working with a knowledgeable home builder makes the entire process hassle-free. If you’re in the market for a new home in Chattanooga, here are key details for calculating your costs.

Know Your Market

If you’re not from Chattanooga, you should know the area is becoming increasingly popular for home buyers. It’s a growing city, and including the suburbs, there are half a million residents. That’s a lot of people buying and selling!

Even with the aftereffects of COVID-19, the economy is climbing. A continued boom makes it harder to buy land and houses. Some properties are on the market just a few hours before being snatched up! This summer, pending sales were up over 40% from the same month last year.

Choosing Your Land

Land is limited, and building on raw land includes a lot of red tape. By partnering with an experienced community home builder you have countless properties available, right at your fingertips!

GreenTech has many communities and over 1000 home sites throughout Tennessee. We take care of the pesky details like clearing the land, acquiring materials, permitting the build and the construction. Some people are willing to handle these factors and expenses themselves, but it’s a learning process. Surprise costs can add up quickly.

Costs to Consider

The major costs of building a home can be put into 5 categories:

  1. Land
  2. Permitting
  3. Design Options
  4. Construction
  5. Inspections

The bulk of your budget goes towards labor, at about 40% of the overall cost. The remainder goes towards everything else. 

In Chattanooga, according to Home Advisor, building a new home costs around $166,000 to $482,000. The wide range comes from factors like square footage, design choices, multi-level vs. single-level, technology and amenity upgrades, and quality of the build.

Why Buy A Brand New Home?

These prices are competitive when you consider the whole real estate market. Median home prices in the South are rising. The average home sells in the mid-$200s. 

You could just buy an older, pre-existing home…but it would still fall into this price range. And for a completely new build from GreenTech, you get more for your money at a comparable price!

Save money when you partner with a new home builder. GreenTech has spent over a decade crafting layouts that are efficient to construct. Relationships with building suppliers are in place, making the cost of materials more affordable. The paperwork, regulations, and overhead of breaking ground on raw land have already been addressed. 

Benefits of Working With A Community Home Builder

Production homes earned a bad reputation in the past. Negative feelings of cookie-cutter developments and poor quality results gave the home building industry a bad name. 

GreenTech is changing that perception. We forge communities and craft homes that embody our values:

  • Stunning designs
  • Green building practices
  • Energy efficient construction
  • Quality materials
  • Smart-living technology
  • Lasting craftsmanship
  • Communities that are designed to enhance the natural surroundings

All of these benefits lead to enduring results. Not to mention, with a new build you’re starting fresh. That means cost savings over time. Older homes have outdated plumbing, inefficient HVAC systems, and appliances that are on their way out. New homes are ready to last for years to come! They’re the best way to stretch your budget. 

GreenTech Homes has years of experience, exceptional home designs and move-in ready homes. Find your dream home today!
