While your energy bill isn't your biggest bill each month, it's one you have some control over. Cutting your energy costs can help you save money, even during the worst winter cold and the most miserable summer heat. Here are five tips our real estate agents recommend for cutting back on your energy usage in the new year, saving some money, and doing your part to help the planet.
With experience working with both home buyers and sellers, our REALTORS® have an in-depth knowledge of what buyers are looking for in Southport homes for sale. By far, the most sought-after features are those that increase the energy efficiency of a home.
Energy efficiency is the one thing that adds value for everyone on both sides of the house-buying equation. For sellers, having proof that you installed energy-efficient features in the home you're selling will increase the appeal to buyers. It will also enable you to ask for, and usually receive, a higher selling price. Some sellers question the initial cash investment they need to make to increase their home's energy efficiency, but when we point out how this investment can help them realize a better selling price, they understand the benefit.
