Lake Norman Real Estate;Going Green for Home Sellers

Tips for how to ad value and Green your home for sale !For green, low-cost solutions to add value to your home, consider the following:

  • Add tankless water heaters. They avoid the standby heat losses associated with storage water heaters, meaning you won’t have to wait for hot water.• Use recycled insulation in attics and walls. Buyers will love the idea of conserving resources and cutting down on energy costs by keeping in warm air.
  • Install water reclamation systems to use the leftover “gray water” from household use for the yard and garden.• Utilize green landscaping with recycled, bio-degradable products and little to no fertilizer and pesticide. Your yard will draw buyers in by being cleaner, safer and more naturally beautiful.
  • Show your home tastefully. A clothes line is a good way to save energy, but may look tacky during a showing. Instead, highlight the hooks and lines available for a clothesline, minus the hanging clothes.• Leave energy-efficient appliances for future owners. This could be the selling point for buyers looking to cut down on energy bills.
  • Seal windows with weather stripping or caulk to plug air leaks, and show your buyers how airtight they really are.For more Tips on how to go green visit Real Living‘s Green Reference.
