scottsdale: Selling Homes with Energy Efficient Features - 02/06/13 07:23 AM
When it comes to selling homes with more energy efficient homes, sellers expect to get some kind of value for these features.  That's why it's critically important to interview agents as to their education and expertise with these types of homes.  Ask an agent if they've EVER sold a home with whatever feature your home has.  And if they say no, ask them what their experience with this feature.  After all, not everyone has the same features but that agent should at least be able to explain and understand the feature.

Winfield Scott was a preacher for most of his life and was born in Michigan in 1837.  … (6 comments)
