Eco-Friendly Features Home Buyers Want Most

If you’re considering selling your home, have you thought about going green?

According to the National Association of Realtors, many home buyers are actively looking for homes that have “green” features – features that will reduce the home’s carbon footprint and help the environment – like energy efficient appliances and geothermal heat and air.

Educated home buyers are armed with the latest facts and figures and they know that heating and cooling together account for the largest portion of residential utility costs – close to 50%.

In fact, a whopping 84% of house hunters are specifically looking for green heating and cooling systems!

If you’re thinking of upgrading your home to get the best sale price possible, here are some projects you should consider:

•    Install or upgrade insulation in your attic and crawl space
•    Make sure your ductwork is in great shape to prevent the loss of any heated or cooled air
•    Install programmable thermostats
•    Install a geothermal heat and air system to replace a conventional HVAC system
•    Replace damaged or old windows to prevent air leaks

Not only will home buyers love these upgrades because they’re great for the environment, but they’ll also love the savings on their overall energy spending!
