f you have two exactly identical homes side by side, and one of them makes a $1,000 worth of power a year, and the other one doesn’t, shouldn’t that thousand dollars count?” Coming from Greg Slater, Associate Broker with Nest Realty, that’s no idle question. Slater is on a mission—an educational mission, you might say—to help homeowners, REALTORS®, and appraisers understand the cost-saving value of energy-saving technology, and learn to take advantage of recent changes allowing appraisers to include those upgrades when valuing a home. It’s an understanding that can make a home more comfortable, make it more valuable at resale, and save on monthly energy bills in the meantime. “Anything that’s tied to energy efficiency is also lowering the carbon footprint and contributing to a greener more sustainable world,” notes Cynthia Adams, CEO of Pearl Home Certification, “so for those architects and builders and trades people that are tied to the green building sector, energy efficiency and your heating-cooling unit are considered a green upgrade.” Millennials currently make up the largest segment of homebuyers, and they lean green. Changes in the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) make it possible to list green improvements, so they’re factored in when the home is put up for sale. Not surprisingly, houses for which green improvements are listed spend fewer days on market, and sell at a higher median price. Standards for new construction also raise the value of green upgrades. “New homes are built much more efficiently than older ones,” Adams says. “People have expectations about how they want to live now that require owners of existing homes to keep up with that if they want their homes to be competitive with the new homes on the market.”

Smart Green Upgrades As much as half of the energy a home uses is for heating and cooling. Smart thermostats allow users to heat and cool homes efficiently, for example, by setting different temperatures for different times of the day. They adjust for humidity and show the amount of energy being used. Some can be operated remotely through a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. Others track a user’s preferences and adjust automatically. According to the EPA, smart thermostats can save up to

$180 per year on heating and cooling bills. Energy Star-rated appliances—dishwashers, refrigerators, home electronics and more—meet an international standard for energy efficiency. Energy Star light bulbs use 75 percent less energy than regular incandescents and last up to ten times longer. Energy Star LED (light-emitting diode) bulbs burn just as efficiently, but last two to five times longer than fluorescents and 35 to 50 times longer than incandescents. “Many people are skipping CFL (compact fluorescent lamps) and going straight to the LED,” Adams says. Energy Star appliances mean little in the end without some other substantial features, warns Woody Fincham of the real estate valuation firm Valucentric. “In order to be considered a green home, there are lots of things that should be present.” Insulation, for example. “If anyone’s not comfortable with what their home costs to operate they should have someone come look at their insulation,” Fincham says. It’s cost effective too: “There is only one improvement on your home that has been proven to pay more than it costs you to change your home, and that’s insulation. I had a neighbor whom I talked to for years; he had an insulation company come in and foam his attic under the roof deck, and he came and saw me the next day and said ‘I wish I would have done this four years ago.’” “Any house built before the year 2000 can probably stand to have some cellulose blown in,” Adams agrees. “It has the greatest payback in terms of lowering energy bills and therefore paying for itself over time. If you air seal a house down to five air changes an hour, that’s a really efficient house. Typically a house can be air sealed for at or under $1,000. Or if the owner wants to do both air sealing and insulation at the same time, they can choose foam insulation and that would hit two birds with one seed.” Besides saving energy, insulation and air sealing will make a home quieter and more comfortable, cut back on dust and bugs and help control humidity. “Good air filters and duct seal are other low cost improvements that can have a big comfort benefit,” Adams says, “because if your ducts are leaking you may have rooms that are persistently uncomfortable because all of that heated or cooled air is not actually making it to the register. It’s all being leaked out in the attic where nobody’s living.”


them. “You can get a more efficient water heater for about $1,000 dollars, but you’re going to spend $10,000 to $30,000 on solar depending on the size of your home and how much room for solar panels you have,” Slater says. Placing a resale value on that investment isn’t easy for the time being. “It’s very complex to value solar on homes,” Fincham notes. “There aren’t a lot of resales yet.”

Adams says, “so it is incumbent on the homeowner to explain what they have done so the agent can take that and translate it into a buyer benefit.” “If you’re selling your home and you’ve invested money to make it better than the average home in that price range or neighborhood or structure type,” Slater says, “the first step when the REALTOR® is helping you determine the price is to identify these things. They can only increase the ap-

“I have clients who have a power bill of $7 a month, because that’s what it costs to be connected to the grid,” Fincham says. “They literally produce 100 percent of their power needs.” Third Party Certification While energy efficiency increases a home’s value, it does so only if the homeowner makes those upgrades visible. If good records aren’t available, and the real estate agent isn’t trained in spotting green features, the homeowner will have trouble recouping that added value upon resale. Proper documentation is crucial for backing up claims that improvements have been made. “People value what they understand and can connect to,”

praised value of a home if someone actually knows about them—not only that you upgraded something in the house, but the efficiency ratings of that upgrade. “A REALTOR® might be able to tell you that a house has a natural gas-fired furnace, there might be an Energy Star label on it, but none of that information tells you what the efficiency rating for the furnace is. If the REALTOR® doesn’t include that information in the Multiple Listing Service, then the

es to do it, it’s actually a great investment.

While insulation has multiple benefits, what’s on the other side of the roof can make just as big a difference. “The biggest thing we see happening over the last few years is the addition of solar panels,” Slater says. “The productivity of the panels has caught up to making the economics work.

buyer doesn’t know it and the appraiser doesn’t know it. The appraiser is not a home inspector, so they’re not going through the house with a fine-tooth comb looking for things like that.” That’s where third party certification and real estate evaluation firms like Pearl Home Certification and Valucentric come in. “We provide services for real estate agents, contractors and home sellers,” Adams says. “From an appraisal perspective, for a high-performing house that is third-party certified, that certification is an asset unto itself. “The appraiser has to understand what the improvement is, and how it contributes to lowering operational costs. That’s essentially what we do. We have a third party certification for new and existing homes where an independent certifying contractor goes into the house and does a walk-through inspection. They take down important information tied to the house’s high-performing features, including model numbers and efficiency ratings, and then we assign points to the property based upon how much those features contribute to efficiency, comfort and air-quality and your house can achieve certification.” “What Pearl does for you is look at the window types, figure out which of your appliances are Energy Star certified, look into your insulation values, look at your HVAC,” Slater says. “Then

they do a blower door test, pressurizing the home to measure how tight it is, how many times per hour the air in your home is naturally exchanged with fresh air just by the home breathing.” “Pearl certification is even more cost effective than solar panels,” Fincham says. “Homeowners get a significant savings on their bill when they go after those certifications.” Qualified appraisers like Fincham use third party scoring systems like the HERS Index (Home Energy Rating System) and the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating to document a home’s green features and energy efficiency. “A rating system helps the appraiser create a quantita-

tive comparison,” Fincham says. “It’s easier to extract the contributory value when there are reliable scores such as LEED, HERS and Pearl. We know that when scored with a reliable system there is merit to the upgrades.” Fincham calls LEED “one of the most substantial certifications you can get. But you generally don’t see that one on your everyday home, because it can be quite expensive to get.” “Where the rubber meets the road for consumers and agents is if you have a certified home you have to market it well,” Fincham says. That means making sure your REALTOR® insists on a competent appraiser. “Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, FHA—all the big govern-

As desirable and environmentally responsible as green upgrades are, homeowners should remember that only attic insulation and solar panels actually produce a positive return on one’s investment. But resale value is just the half of it. “There are tangible and comfort-driven reasons why people will be attracted to a house with improvements and it may not be tied to the fact that they want to save on energy bills,” Adams says. “Other things are important. Very few people approach a real estate agent and say I’m really interested in a house in this school district, this size and this [green rating]. But people do care very much about comfort.” “What inevitably happens when somebody makes these changes,” Slater says, “is that they are drawn to it for economic reasons. But that’s not what they talk about two months later. They talk about how much more they love their home because it’s comfortable. The changes become an intrinsic value that’s almost priceless.” n

hat is the best price for your home and how do you know? When all is said and done, the price is what the buyer is willing to pay and the seller is willing to accept. However, before the negotiation can begin, the home must go on the market, get advertised and get shown—or not if it is priced too high. Coming up with the right list price for your home is both an art and a science and reflects what similar homes in your neighborhood have sold for and what is currently on the market. The condition of your home comes into play as do a host of other factors such as the quality of the local schools and proximity to jobs and amenities like the University, shopping, parks or play grounds. Most sellers can’t be objective about the value of their own home, and in order to price it right, input from their agent—who knows the market well and is experienced at negotiating contracts and successfully bringing homes to closing—is essential. This is especially true today when inventory shortages and the fast pace of sales, at least in some neighborhoods, can give sellers the idea that all they need do is put a sign in the front yard and the house will sell quickly. If only it were that easy. Fortunately a big part of what agents do is offer an objective view of the market and your home helping you price it so as not to lose out due to either over-pricing or under-pricing.

Buyers Decide What a Home Is Worth A recent survey of generational trends in home buying conducted by the NAR (National Association of REALTORS®) found that most buyers under the age of 70 start their house search online. However, when they are ready to get serious, the vast majority (88 percent) use an agent to help them find and purchase their home. This means today’s buyers are more savvy about the market than in previous times when they were totally reliant on agents for information. By the time they contact a REALTOR®, they have already eliminated some homes and formed opinions about what they can expect to pay. Since many buyers’ first impression of a house comes from online searches, it is essential that the home look its absolute best in pictures, videos and online descriptions. In other words, buyers need to be excited about walking in the door. If they are not, no matter how nice your house is, they may eliminate it before they ever see the inside. Of course the home must also live up to its marketing, and buyers and agents must both be convinced the actual condition and amenities of the

house justify the price. If not the buyers will not linger, and agents are less likely to bring other prospects to view the home.

Sellers Set The Price When it comes to pricing their home, sellers are often tempted to set a higher price than might be justified by market conditions, believing that buyers can always bring in a lower offer and they can negotiate a price somewhere in between—not a sound tactic. In reality, before they start looking at homes, serious buyers either have sufficient cash or they talk to a lender and learn how much of a mortgage loan they qualify for. This information, along with their comfort level about how much payment they can afford, drives their decisions about what homes to consider. Often this means overpriced homes are eliminated up front because they fall out of the buyers’ price range. On the other hand, buyers who can afford more house are also likely to reject ones that are overpriced since they won’t compare favorably to others they are viewing. All of this reduces the number of times a home is shown to qualified buyers, which doesn’t help it sell. While the price can always be reduced, many of the people who would have bought it at the lower price have purchased another home meanwhile.

Pricing Challenges Today’s sellers benefit from more competition for their homes than just a few years ago and may even be for-

tunate enough to choose from several strong offers thanks to our active market and resulting inventory shortages. Still, they need to be careful when pricing their home, especially if they are actively competing with new construction. Buyers who can afford a new home have lots of great features to choose from. Improved energy efficiency, open floor plans and one level living are popular. Many buyers also welcome the warranties that come with new homes and the idea that they don’t have to worry about renovations or upgrades. This means sellers must assure their resale home is in top-notch condition and the price is very attractive. For example, Byrd Abbott with Roy Wheeler Realty Co. advises sellers to be sure their house “sparkles,” and to recognize the value of pricing it right. “If people think they are getting a great deal it can make a difference,” she said suggesting sellers be “very aggressive in pricing.” Roy Wheeler’s Susan Reres explained that sellers of resale homes must work hard to emphasize their home’s best assets plus they need to “offer incentives and price aggressively to attract buyers.” And the good news, she says, is that there are some great deals out there for buyers “who recognize the value of established homes with full-grown landscaping and in some of the most sought-after locations.” If selling your home is a priority, contact your agent today so you can price it right for our fast-paced market. You’ll be glad you did. n Celeste Smucker is a writer and blogger who lives near Charlottesville.
