To environmentally conscious homebuyers, eco-friendly features can help your home stand out in a competitive real estate market. In addition to environmental benefits and the promise of lower electric bills, green upgrades like installing a solar energy system on your roof can actually increase the resale value of your home.
A study by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, part of the U.S. Department of Energy, found that installing solar panels adds an average of $20,000 to your solar home’s value. Other “green” and energy-efficient home upgrades also increase the selling price of your home – in California, homes with green labels sell at an average price premium of nine percent.
To ensure that you get the most out of the eco-investments you make in your home, you need to effectively communicate all their benefits to prospective homebuyers.
