Home Energy Score Program
Like a miles-per-gallon rating for a car, the Home Energy Score is a rating that helps homeowners and buyers gain useful information about the property’s energy performance. The report estimates home energy use, associated costs, and provides energy solutions to cost-effectively improve the home’s efficiency. Our Home Energy Score program is:
FAST! Assessment takes less than one hour in most homes.
SIMPLE! Easy to understand 1 to 10 scale.
CREDIBLE! Our inspectors have completed U.S. Department of Energy certification to perform these assessments.
How Having a Home Energy Score can Help Sell a House
According to the Demand Institute, energy efficiency is the most significant unmet demand in the housing market. Providing this information can make a home more appealing and available to a wider pool of potential buyers through access to energy efficiency-related financing products.
On average, utility costs are higher than either property taxes or home insurance. Studies indicate that homes disclosing energy costs – even when those costs were high – closed at a higher percentage of the asking price and spent less time on the market than comparable homes that did not disclose energy costs.
Simply put, home buyers appreciate the credible information Home Energy Score provides when purchasing a home.

OTHER TYPES OF INSPECTIONS
Pre-Listing Seller’s Inspections
This type of inspection is typically conducted prior to putting the house on the market to provide a better understanding of the conditions which will likely be discovered by a prospective buyer. A Seller’s Inspection gives enough time to find adequate, affordable remedies to correct any problems in advance and avoid haggling with a prospective buyer.
This type of inspection is the most common. A person who is interested in purchasing a property wants to learn more about the house to make an informed buying decision. The report provides them with an objective, visual analysis of the structure and systems of a home and determines things that are not performing correctly and the items that are beyond their useful life or are unsafe.
One-Year Builder’s Warranty Inspection
The sale of a newly constructed home typically includes a one-year warranty in which the builder is obligated to correct any problems encountered within the first year of ownership. It is wise to have a professional home inspection performed before the one-year warranty expires, one or two months before the expiration date, so you know exactly what needs to be corrected.
Having an inspection for information only is an option for buyers who still want all the information about that prospective new home, but are not interested in re-opening the negotiations between buyer and seller after the home inspection.
