How Important is Quality to Home Buyers? (discussion link)

"But, of course, the final decision lies with the customers. One builder told me that people would rather have stylish granite countertops than the most energy-efficient options he offered, even though he explained that in the long run, a high-efficiency HVAC would more than pay for itself.  ...

I know from personal experience, too, that a lack of quality can be a big problem for homeowners. I live in a production-built house that would have benefited enormously from a few relatively inexpensive changes: deeper overhangs, more efficient HVAC, more insulation, and thicker subfloors are just a few that come to mind."
