Buying a home is the most significant investment most of us will ever make.
Here are some tips to help you make the most of that investment:

  1. Give your house a thorough physical. A home inspection will cover the basics, but a thorough energy analysis will help you understand how your home works - and how it could work better. Our Pre-Sale Consult includes an infrared analysis to assure you that any efficiency challenges are knowable and solvable.
     
  2. Consider all the costs of your home. The sale price matters, but so do operating costs like property taxes and utilities. An inefficient home will have higher heating and cooling bills and may require more upkeep. A Pre-Sale Energy Consult can help you decide if rolling energy upgrades into your initial investment will save you money in the long run.
     
  3. Think of efficiency challenges as investment opportunities. Some potential buyers may be scared off by high fuel bills, a wet basement, or persistent ice dams, but a Pre-Sale Energy Consult can help you see the diamond in the rough. Learn how comprehensive upgrades can transform an inefficient property into the much-more-valuable home of your dreams.
