Energy Efficiency 2020

Fletcher Bright Realty is always looking for ways for buyers to get the most from their homes. 

Our REALTORS® note an important rising trend in the area: Energy-efficient homes.

Energy efficiency helps homeowners in more ways than one. First, it lowers the long-term cost of ownership. Efficient upgrades can cut hundreds or even thousands of annual utility and repair bills. They also make the home easier to sell and stand out among other Chattanooga homes for sale.

2020 is just around the corner. Now that we're living in the future, it's the perfect time to look for new ways to make your home more energy-efficient. Whether you're doing it for yourself or preparing for a sale, it's sure to pay off.

Let's look at some of the best improvements:

  1. Install Energy-Efficient Roofing
    Pound for pound, energy-efficient roofing is perhaps the most effective environment-friendly update you can make. Metal roofing reflects a large amount of heat, making it easier to stay cool in summer or warm in winter with less expenditure. An alternative is "cool roof" shingles, which maintain a classic shingle roof but uses specialized reflective granules.

Saving Money During Holidays

The holiday season is often a busy time of the year — especially when you're planning on moving into one of our Chattanooga homes for sale. Whether you're trying to save up for a down payment or tightening up your budget in anticipation of moving, our REALTORS® have gathered money-saving tips that keep your holidays stress-free!

  1. Know Your Finances
    Before you spend or save, you need to be aware of your current financial position. Determine your monthly income and expenditure average, taking into account consistent bills like utilities and grocery expenses. Next, determine how much you'll estimate needing for your down payment or to facilitate relocation. Once you have solid numbers to work with, you can begin planning.

  2. Set a Budget
    A firm budget will be a good friend to you not only during the home buying process but throughout the rest of the year as well. It's especially important to maintain a strict budget when buying a home or moving during the holidays, as it's easy to exceed your budget when purchasing holiday gifts.

Holiday Home Staging

Selling your home during the holidays is a mixed bag of pros and cons. Gone are the booming real estate days of summer, but you can rest assured that anyone willing to venture out house-hunting this time of year is serious about buying. Our REALTORS® know the challenges of selling during the holidays, which is why we're here to help. 

One thing to remember about selling this season is that staging your house is more important than ever. Before listing your Chattanooga homes for sale, take a page from our playbook and use these tips to stage your home like a pro. 

  1. Deep clean your home. 
    Before you start thinking about how to stage your home, you need to clean like you've never cleaned before. Hire a professional cleaning service if you have to. Cleaning tasks yous should complete include eliminating clutter, getting rid of as many knick-knacks, decorations, and personal objects as possible.
