Energy Upgrades Add Value to Your Home
Let’s be honest, when you’re buying a home, you don’t often think about selling it yet. Yet, the statistics show that quite many home owners stay in their homes only up to five years. That means that making big upgrades to your home doesn’t always seem like a too good idea – after all, if you’re likely to leave in couple of years, investments in your home don’t seem likely to pay off in the long run. But maybe, just maybe you could reconsider that thought.
Partly, of course, you could be right. Take two houses, side by side, built the same year, looking very similar, but one house sold at a price higher than the other one. At first glance the cheaper one might look better for the buyer, but at a closer inspection, the one with a higher price tag makes more sense. How? The answer is simple – one is simply more energy efficient. And even if we forget all about being green, it all comes down to money. How much less will you be paying for your energy, how much less will you end up paying for your utility bills, how much more comfortable will your life be with more energy efficient home. And that’s what it’s all about.
When selling your home, you simply need to make the buyers well aware of it, the buyers as well as the real estate agents and appraisers. For more information about it you can read the articles you can find at www.johnsoncontrols.com/panoptix. Johnson Controls, by the way, is a company that helps you improve your energy efficiency and their Panoptix solution is a way to track the performance of all of your systems real time.
