DOE's Better Buildings Program: 'Home Energy Efficiency for Real Estate Professionals'

from SIPA

The U.S. Department of Energy's Better Buildings program has developed a 25-page presentation, titled "Home Energy Efficiency for Real Estate Professionals," (dated April 2017) to better educate real estate agents about the benefits of energy efficiency in home construction, such as SIPs vs. traditional construction methods. The data in the presentation supports the benefits of energy efficiency including faster home sales (18 to 89 days faster) and shows that these homes sell for 2-6 percent more (or $2.99 to $13.82 sqft more) for every dollar of energy saved on electric bills.

Besides highlighting the benefits of the energy efficient home there are links to dozens of resources from Certified Green Building Professional Courses to mortgage research and appraiser accreditation guidelines.
