New White Paper Works to Capture Efficiency in Residential Real Estate Transactions

The Energy Department has released "Capturing Energy Efficiency in Residential Real Estate Transactions: Steps That Energy Efficiency Programs Can Take,"  a new white paper that highlights how residential programs can help make home resale prices account for the value of high-performance energy efficiency features to appraisers, real estate agents, mortgage lenders, homebuyers, and sellers.

DOE’s Better Buildings Home Energy Information Accelerator launched earlier this year brings together real estate and efficiency partners to build on these efforts, address challenges raised in the paper, and facilitate improved access to and use of energy information in real estate transactions.
