As a certified Responsible House on the market, you can show potential home owners their projected energy costs, attract environmentally conscious buyers and recoup your energy investment. We know that those shopping for a home can be worried about shocking utilities bills in their future and we can give you the tools to allay their fears. Advertising your home through ResponsibleHouse/For Sale will help your listing stand out to the many buyers who care about their carbon footprint.

Ideas: Cory meeting with Realtor, McNeil's certification, Jason's sale, Crimora solar guy. Write to realtors

A recent home buyer called us with regret that he had not contacted us before purchasing his home. He thought that with his 28 panels of solar on his new property, his utility bills would be low. Much to his surprise, his winter heating bill was over $500! He called AltEnergy (the company that had installed the panels) and they told him to call Responsible House. This house is woefully leaky and inefficient. The homeowner showed us an article about having an audit before you buy a house and wishing he had done just that. 

When our energy retrofit customers begin the process to sell their homes, we encourage them to insist on a Green Appraiser and provide them with documentation certifying the energy improvements they have made. Our perspective retrofit customers are provided with a cost savings projection that can help them plan their investment. Our customers meet with their realtors to plan how to market their energy efficient home.
