New Home Saves 20-30% on Utility Bills

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Greater Quad Cities

The Quad City, IA real estate market is lacking one thing; the amount of homes which meet or exceed an Energy Efficient Rating System.

Many regions of the country offer different guidelines to build green. Some of which consist of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), Built Green Colorado, Green Built Home in Milwaukee or perhaps a more common name, Energy Star. Mid American Energy, our local utility provider even offers an EnergyAdvantage® New Homes Program. My point here is that there are many resources for new home builders to use so they can build a more efficient, more comfortable home. So why aren't we seeing more builders take advantage? After all, it seems to be the direction in which the real estate market is heading.

Well, Dan Dolan of Dan Dolan Homes is one such builder who uses the resources available for him to build efficient town houses and single family homes in and around the Quad Cities. One home in particular that Dan has built to an Energy Star Rating is currently listed for sale in Blue Grass, IA. I have priced this home at $219,900 and it offers 1,628sf, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths , 3 car garage and it qualifies for an Energy Efficient Mortgage. You can find more details, building techniques and pictures at Please visit Dan and I at our open house Sunday February 8th or Sunday the 15th from 12-4. We have many lots available and we build to suit.
