Sales proposition #1 Sell the sizzle and not the steak. Start with our GoNetZero energy audit, then
add the cost of the recomended energy efficient features to the asking price, and include financing
Later, if you have to reduce the price, the buyer will feel you are helping
to pay for the upgrades, making each dollar received in a counter offer more valuable to the buyer.
Sales proposition #2
Create an additional profit. Make the suggested upgrades yourself with available rebates and a green loans, then pay off that loan with your sale proceeds. Statistics show that Eco-Friendly homes sell faster and for more money, so you could create extra profit
