The Value of R-Value and NPV of PV: Selling High Performance Homes in an Indifferent Market

The ideal client hires you to build a net zero energy home, or to complete a deep energy retrofit of their existing home. Two questions arise: How will the energy efficiency improvements impact the value of the construction loan? How much value is added to the home when it’s time to sell? These improvements change the value of the home and the perception of the home by potential buyers. It is up to the real estate agent, the appraiser, and the seller to understand and convey the potential value to a buyer. Learn from leading advocates, market participants, and analysts about the contributory value of energy efficiency improvements and energy producing technologies like solar and geothermal.  Find out how these improvements increase homeowner equity and how they translate at the point of sale. Overcome the barriers preventing realizing value for efficiency in real estate transactions.
