The Visible Value Blueprint

The newest edition of the Visible Value Blueprint (Making the Value Visible: A Blueprint for Transforming the High-Performing Homes Market by Showcasing Clean and Efficient Energy Improvementsis out now! 

When homeowners make improvements to their homes, the most important aspects of home performance —safety, comfort, energy efficiency, durability, and environmental impact — are often not visible during a real estate transaction. As a result, clean and energy efficiency investments are regularly overlooked or inaccurately valued at the time of a home's sale.

Elevate Energy published an updated version of the Visible Value Blueprint that presents strategies for valuing energy efficiency in the real estate market. (Spoiler alert! Relationships matter.)

Making the Value Visible: A Blueprint for Transforming the High-Performing Homes Market by Showcasing Clean and Efficient Energy Improvements, a collaboration between Elevate Energy and the Building Performance Association, outlines actions high-performing home professionals can take to unlock the value of these special homes in the real estate market using data, collaboration, and communication.

  • Make high-performing homes and their features visible in the real estate transaction
  • Make high-performing homes and their features exciting for buyers and listing agents
  • Demonstrate the additional value that high-performing homes can command during the home sale
