Did you know that in a recent Boston Globe article, multiple studies determined that energy efficient, green-labeled homes sold for a premium versus non-labeled homes? Additionally, in another study, homes that disclosed energy costs sold at a faster rate and with higher closing rates than those that did not. Simply put, the more efficient a home, the less energy it consumes and the more money a homeowner will save. This is resonating with the market.
In summation, the real estate market is shifting. As energy costs continue to rise, homeowner are placing more emphasis on energy efficiency. Energy Savers Home Performance provides it's real estate partners with valuable information and recommendations that gives them a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
The overall efficiency rating of a home is not just a number pulled out of a hat. During a Home Energy Assessment, an Energy Specialist considers dozens of data points that culminate into an easy to understand "miles per gallon" energy performance rating to help individuals understand their home's energy use and make smart decisions about energy efficiency improvements.
A Home Energy Assessment can be a valuable negotiating tool for either a buying or selling agent. If energy recommendations are sought after, a simple pre and post comparison can be made that clearly states measurable improvements, which our real estate partners then use to reassess the value of a property.
