If you want to improve your net worth...make your home more efficient. Energy efficient homes sell faster and at a higher price than average homes.
Two studies published in The Appraisal Journal show that home market value increases by $20 for every $1 decrease in annual energy bills. 1 If a home performance project saves an average home $463 per year on their utility bills, then the value of the home would increase by $9,280!
If the net project cost was $2,500 after instant discounts, and home equity was increased by $9,280, then the homeowner's net worth was increased by $6,780.
Actual increases in property value will vary along with the cost of each project and the projected savings per year in energy costs. When you order a energy assessment you'll receive a report with a financial analysis of installation costs that presents payback calculations based upon projected energy savings.
