May 6, 2011 - PRLog -- We Buy Houses in Any Condition - Washington DC: Looking for a way to keep your house at an optimum sale price when you are getting ready to put it on the market? Try putting in some energy saving devices and features. Don’t forget to list those that you already have installed or were there when you moved in.

Many home sellers fail to mention their house’s best features because they are living in the house and don’t think about their everyday surroundings. Walk through the house and give it a good look. Try to remember anything you have done in each room to improve the energy savings. Have you replaced bulbs with CFLs or LEDs? That’s energy savings. Did you install a water saving showerhead with a switch off valve to shut off the water when you soap off or shampoo? That’s energy savings. How about the new toilet you installed that complies with the new water saving technology?

You get the idea. There might be dozens of smaller things you have done to improve your energy consumption. If you haven’t done any of these things, it would be a great idea to do some of them and be sure to record them in a note to yourself. You’ll want to remember when you list the house.

Some additional things you can do if you haven’t already are adding extra insulation, caulking around doors and windows and adding weather stripping to weather proof the home, and installing motion sensor lighting in bathrooms, outdoors, and in the garage. These will automatically go on when someone enters the room, and shut off when you leave; no need to remember to turn off the lights.

A big plus these days is a solar system. They are easy to install, although can be quite expensive. There are used systems now available for installations that are considerably cheaper. Adding just a solar hot water heating unit can go over big with buyers these days. Everyone wants to save energy and some are quite interested in what their carbon footprint looks like.

A solar powered sprinkler system for the watering of the shrubs counts. A digital wall unit to operate the heating and cooling system is an energy saver as you can set it to be lower when you are gone, but comfortable when you arrive at home after work or school. Make sure that whatever you do to improve energy consumption in the house or even outdoors becomes part of your house’s listing description.
