When purchasing a new home, most homeowners look for homes that display sustainability. Using energy efficient materials in the home like windows, thermostats, and insulation are important to homeowners. This saves energy within the home and often means their utility bills will be lower in price. They also look for energy efficient appliances within the home as well. This includes refrigerators, stove/ovens, washers and dryers, etc. Upgrading to these energy efficient materials and appliances before selling your home is a great way to increase the value of your home.
