Description: Patch article entitled Purchasing Energy Efficient Homes Important to Young Buyers by Judy Putnam on December 28th, 2013.
This johnscreek.patch.com article recommends considering energy efficient upgrades to attract more buyers. Suggestions include having a Home Energy Audit performed on your home, examining insulation levels to ensure they are adequate, and installing energy efficient mechanical equipment.
The article suggests that the "under 40" buyer is particularly interested in energy efficiency and "greener" homes. "You need the lipstick on your home to have buyers fall in love but you need substance when the buyer decides to make an offer".
We couldn't agree more.
