Vail Daily August 15, 2013:
You’ve probably been aware for some time now that making energy-saving improvements to your home can save you money. Now, those same improvements could potentially make you money when you sell your home. It stands to reason that if a home is cheaper to operate and more comfortable, then it should be worth more to buyers. That’s the driving force behind a new cooperative program between the Energy Smart Colorado program and the Eagle County assessor.
To make it easy for buyers and sellers to identify these homes, Eagle County Assessor Mark Chapin has included an “Energy Smart Home” designation in the county’s property records database. The Energy Smart logo is prominently displayed so when a broker or buyer examines the property records, they show that the property has achieved an Energy Smart Home designation.
