IF YOU ARE BUYING OR REFINANCING AN EXISTING HOME
A Energy Efficient Mortgage (EEM) may be for you. We can work with you, your Lender, and your Real Estate professional to put together a financing package that will allow you to include the cost of installing energy upgrades directly into your home purchase or refinance package. For most existing homes, only a few hundred to a few thousand dollars worth of cost-effective energy improvements can mean large savings to you. As energy prices increase, so will your savings.
IF YOU ARE BUYING A NEWLY CONSTRUCTED HOME
We can work with You, your Builder, your Architect, and your Lender to have your home certified as an EPA ENERGY STAR ® Home. An ENERGY STAR ® Home is a home built 30% or more energy efficient over the Council of American Building Officials – Model Energy Code (CABO MEC) standards for residential construction. The ENERGY STAR ® Homes program offers a number of benefits that go beyond just you saving money on your energy bills.
IF YOU ALREADY OWN A HOME
Whether you are a do-it-yourselfer or you plan to hire a contractor, we can give you clear and unbiased guidance as to the most practical and cost effective energy improvements that you can install to reduce your energy bills and increase the comfort level of your home. For most existing homes, only a few hundred to a few thousand dollars worth of targeted energy improvements will meet this goal. As energy prices increase, so will your savings.
IF YOU ARE A MORTGAGE LENDER
If you originate HUD/FHA, VA, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, or MSHA Mortgages, you already have the tools within your reach to link your clients with the growing number of Energy Efficient Mortgage (EEM) products in place right now. We would be happy to partner with you to make that happen.
IF YOU ARE A REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL
We can serve as an information and HERS reporting resource to help you better serve the post purchase benefits of your clients by providing them with a wider range of technical and financial residential energy options. We would be happy to partner with you to make that happen.
IF YOU ARE A BUILDER, ARCHITECT, OR MULTI-UNIT HOUSING DEVELOPER
We can be your link to the US Department of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ENERGY STAR ® Homes Program. An ENERGY STAR ® Home is a single or multi-family dwelling built to standards that are 30% or more energy efficient than those built to CABO-MEC, and we can serve as the required third party verifier for your company or not-for-profit agency building homes to standards.
