Information for Realtors
Shopping for a new home is a complicated process for many prospective home buyers. As a realtor, you hope to simplify this process and help home buyers feel more at ease with the decisions they are making. When you partner with the right contractors, you can make trusted recommendations to your buyers and arm them with the information they need to make decisions they feel good about for years to come.
Setting Your Clients on the Right Path
In Maine’s tight housing market, prospective buyers often shop for homes that will need a number of upgrades in order to be comfortable, safe, and energy efficient. They seek advice from home inspectors, assessors, interior remodelers, and more, only to receive conflicting information that can be overwhelming.
When realtors refer their clients to Evergreen, they rest assured that we can help close the deal and serve your client well. Our practical recommendations, tailored to optimize comfort and energy efficiency, are delivered with the great customer service buyers need to reduce stress.
Our free one-hour pre-sale consult is an invaluable supplement to a traditional home inspection and shows a prospective buyer how just a few affordable upgrades will greatly enhance a home’s comfort and indoor air quality, and lower monthly utility bills. The buyer can rest easy knowing exactly what their new home will need, and they’ll already be in touch with a contractor who can improve their home after they buy it.
When you partner with the right contractors, you’ll increase the trust between you and your clients, while helping them make the best decisions for their new homes.
Making Home Improvements More Accessible to New Homeowners
Some prospective home buyers are intimidated by the prospect of having to make improvements to their home soon after the big purchase. The right contractor can put a buyer’s mind at ease by giving them advice on how to prioritize their energy efficiency improvements over time.
At Evergreen, we advise our customers on how to stage their home improvements in a cost-effective and “energy-effective” manner. We might, for example, recommend air sealing and insulation in the attic and basement as first-tier improvements and then window and door replacement or wall insulation down the road as a second-tier improvement.
Evergreen also helps home buyers navigate the incentive programs offered by Efficiency Maine and local utilities, helping them leverage rebates and financing products for a variety of measures, from insulation to new heating systems. And for homes in natural gas territory, the incentives are even greater.
