Green Home Buyer Tips

  • Ask the sellers how environmentally-aware they are, or if they've made any investments in their home to save energy or promote conservation.
  • Ask about energy bills when looking to buy.
  • Keep an eye out for any appliances that may stay in the home, and see if they carry the Energy Star label.
  • Check to see if there are any air leaks through windows or doors around the house.
  • Inquire about flooring, cabinetry or countertop materials. Are they eco-friendly?
  • Are the toilets, faucets and showerheads low-flow?
  • Ask when the heating and cooling system (HVAC) was last checked and cleaned.
  • Ensure the pipes are well-insulated, and ask whether a tankless water heater is used.
