Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 27, 2014
Next Step Living™, New England’s leading provider of whole-home energy solutions, today announced the availability of two new ebooks with practical tips for buying and selling an energy-efficient home. Both books offer actionable advice and guidance from experts in building science, home appraisals, home inspections and real-estate sales.
“In this competitive real estate market, homes that deliver proven energy efficiency will sell faster and for more money,” said Craig Foley, chief of energy solutions for RE/MAX Leading Edge. “Buying a home in New England is a stressful experience; consumers understand that utility costs have a significant impact on the overall cost of a home. Energy-efficient homes cost less to run. Buyers are more aware than ever that energy efficiency not only lowers stress on their wallets, but on the environment as well.”
For buyers, the ebook “How to Buy an Energy-Efficient House. What You Don’t Know About Your Next Home Could Cost You” lays out what to look for in an energy-efficient home and what can be done easily and affordably to enhance a home’s energy efficiency. The Next Step Living ebook for buyers is available at no charge at NextStepLiving.com/Buyers.
For sellers, the ebook “Ready. Set. Sell. How Energy Efficiency Can Help Sell Your Home” offers an action plan for preparing to put a home on the market and make that home a standout listing. Sellers can find this ebook at NextStepLiving.com/Sellers.
“As a one-stop resource for informed advice, expert workmanship and guidance about available incentives and rebates for home energy solutions, we’re happy to publish these ebooks for home buyers and sellers,” said Next Step Living COO Brian Greenfield. “A home is a big investment, and we want to help people save on energy use and costs as well as live more comfortably and sustainably.”
