Why pay the same for a conventional home that can cost as much as $130,000 on energy over the life of a 30-year mortgage when you can live in a Green Makeover Home for the same price and save enough to pay your mortgage off years earlier and save thousands of dollars in interest costs?

Now you don’t have to settle for an increasing energy bill that looks more like a second mortgage.

 Approved green ready home

Energy efficiency with confidence.

When we work for you as your Green-Ready Home Buyer’s Agent, we will introduce to you Green-Ready Homes that have been approved for a Green Makeover that includes a Before and After  Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Report,  so that you can be assured that the home that you buy will be a genuine Energy Efficient Green Makeover Home.

HERS Rating

Rest assured that the price that you pay for your Green-Ready Home will be the same as you would pay for any renovated conventional home.  However, the big difference will be that your home will:

• Significantly reduce water, maintenance, and electric costs.
• Be safer, more hurricane resistant, healthier, and more comfortable.
• May earn you a tax credit..
• Provide you with an opportunity to manage your savings and reduce your 30 year mortgage term by years, and thereby save thousands of dollars.
• Help to reduce pollution and fight climate change.

Most home purchase financing is based on the value of the home as per the price reflected on the purchase contract. Our Green Lender’s plan is different, as it is based on the price reflected on the purchase contract PLUS the cost of the Green Home Makeover.

Also, unlike most mortgage financing today where a 20% down payment and a very high FICO score are required to qualify, we introduce 95% – 96.5% financing with lower FICO requirements in the mid-600′s with fixed rate, variable rate, and interest-only options and with some seller-paid closing costs opportunities. 75%-80% financing is also available for second & investment homes.
