Energy-Efficient Homes Sell Faster and for More Money
Sep 01, 2014 08:55AM
National surveys are indicating that 90 percent of consumers consider energy efficiency and environmentally sound aspects of a home to be almost as important as interior finishes. Local real estate agent Kathy Maguire, of DPR Realty, a certified EcoBroker, is making an exclusive offer to list a home and receive a free energy audit and a free HERS score. This energy audit and score have the potential to greatly enhance the marketability of the home, resulting in the home selling more quickly and at a higher price. Maguire is also offering home buyers a free energy audit with the purchase of a home.
Maguire deals in all aspects of residential real estate, including the luxury market, historic homes, and architecturally interesting homes. In addition to the EcoBroker certification, Maguire also holds the National Association of Realtors Green designation, the accredited buyer’s representative (ABR) designation and the Graduate Real Estate Institute (GRI) designation. “I’m always looking for ways to not only offer my clients the best value, but to also develop a relationship where they feel I am a trusted resource,” Maguire explains. “My EcoBroker and Green designation training helps ensure that my customers, who are my number-one priority, get the knowledge they need. From energy-efficient appliances to solar options and overall energy savings, I have resources at my disposal to help my buyers and sellers make informed real estate decisions.”
