Why use a “Green Realtor”
There are already signs that in the near future energy costs will continue to rise. When shopping for a new home, it is imperative that buyers compare homes based on the normal criteria of location, size and functionality along with the homes potential for energy efficiency by concentrating on insulation, type of windows, furnace, roof, age of the structure, type of wiring, type of plumbing, lot grading and the potential to grow your own food should you desire. We can make this process easier for you with our knowledge of the area builders over a long period of time and our training on efficiency and energy efficient products. We can point out periods of rapid growth when homes in our city were not well constructed and were rendered very poor on the scale of energy efficiency. We can point out builders that meet LEED standards or Green standards and have built to the highest levels of efficiency.
