CAR’s Energy Audit Program – Money in Home Buyers’ Pockets

Altadena Home in Country Club Neighborhood

There are many ways a Buyer can save money.  One way is to apply to California Association of Realtors’ Energy Audit Program that provides rebates up to $250.00 when you purchase your next home.

The energy audit is conducted by a certified Home Energy Rating System (“HERS”) rater for the purpose of identifying improvements that will reduce monthly utility bills

Here are the qualifications:

1.  Purchase a California single-family home  as the primary residence anytime from Oct. 1, 2010 and Dec. 31, 2011

2.  Conduct a HERS home energy audit of the home prior to close of escrow (as part of a FHA Energy Efficient Mortgage) or no later than 60 days after escrow  and use of a California REALTOR® in the transaction.

To find a certified HERS rater area to Calcerts.com.

For ideas, videos, information on rebates and incentives, go to Energy Upgrade California.    At this site you can enter the County you live in to find out specific rebates, incentives and resources that are available in your County.   For information on Los Angeles County’s incentives and rebates under Energy Upgrade CA , to the Energy Upgrade CA Los Angeles County Page.

For more information, ask you Realtor.  If you don’t have a Realtor, give me a call, e-mail or text and learn more about CARs’s Energy Audit Program as well as many other money-saving opportunities and programs we offer our Buyers.
