When you’re selling your home, you want to promote those features that will be of highest interest to prospective buyers. After all, the more reasons a buyer has to love your property, the more likely they are to make a great offer.

Increasingly, one category of features that buyers are looking for is energy-efficiency. So, if there are specific energy-saving characteristics of your home, make sure those are highlighted when selling.

When considering the energy-efficient characteristics of your property, consider the following:

  • Appliances: Fridge, stove, washer, dryer.
  • HVAC: Furnace, air conditioner.
  • Insulation. (Especially in the attic.)
  • Home technology. For example, a system that automates heating, cooling, lighting, etc., to keep energy usage to a minimum.
  • Lighting. Have you switched to LED bulbs or fixtures?
  • Windows and doors. For example, did you replace windows in recent years to help lower heating and cooling costs? 

If something stands out as particularly energy-efficient, it will be of interest to many buyers. 

And, obviously, if your home has a unique energy-efficient feature, such as solar panels, you’ll definitely want to point that out in the listing description.
