If your Western North Carolina home is currently on the market, or if you’re getting ready to put it on the market, it is important to do everything you can to give it a competitive edge. Home buyers value green improvements that make a home healthier, more comfortable and save on operating costs. Homes that are green sell quicker, and for more money, than a house that lacks environmentally friendly accommodations. Clearly, ‘green’ improvements are something buyers are looking for and sellers should be thinking about. Here are some eco-friendly home improvements to consider:
•High efficiency toilets, faucets, and shower heads are a great way to reduce water usage while also lowering costly water bills – just replacing aerators and shower heads, the average home will save $65.
•As much as half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling. If needed, consider investing in new energy-efficient windows, replacing an old furnace with a new energy efficient model, or updating your home’s insulation.
•Lights can be a great green asset. Swap traditional incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs and install dimmer switches to control your energy usage.
•Appliances that are Energy Star rated can be a major selling point to potential buyers.
•Consider indoor air quality. You may want to repaint with low VOC paints because this really matters to a growing number of people, especially people with young children
•Replace your old water heater with a tankless one.
•You may want to get an energy audit. They are inexpensive and inspectors will give recommendations, both big and small, that will make your home more energy efficient. If your home has any of these green energy-saving features don’t wait for potential buyers to notice them on their own, be sure to highlight them, the advantages they will enjoy from the features, and the benefits that they provide in reducing expenses.
