Buyers love energy-efficient features so much, they’re willing to spend up to 2.7% extra on energy-rated homes, according to research by Freddie Mac.
Tip: When making updates, repairs and replacements, always go for the green option. Think triple-pane windows, tankless water heaters, low-energy appliances. You’ll add a selling point to your listing and maybe even make a profit on your investment!
Yards, patios and decks add “square footage” of living space to your home, providing a means to relax with friends and family.
Tip: If your place lacks outdoor amenities, a backyard fire pit is a great DIY weekend project to tackle before you sell. Add a couple of chairs and the stage is set for prospective buyers!
