- As of January 1, 2018, all homes in Portland must undergo a City of Portland Home Energy Score assessment before being listed for sale.
- The Home Energy Score from this assessment rates the overall energy efficiency of a home using information about its structure (foundation, roof, walls, insulation, windows) and heating, cooling, and hot water systems.
- It also details information about the home, what improvements could be made, and what the Home Energy Score might be if those improvements are made.
- Our assessors can typically conduct an in-home assessment in about an hour.
The ordinance requiring Home Energy Score assessments applies specifically to homes located within the City of Portland. Homes do not need to undergo the improvements outlined by the Home Energy Score; this information simply needs to be made available to potential buyers. The energy score must be posted on all home listings, including those on MLS, Zillow, Trulia, Craigslist, etc. $500 penalties will be periodically assessed to sellers who are out of compliance with the City of Portland Home Energy Score program.
How a Home Energy Score Will Benefit Your Home Sales
Beyond helping you maintain compliance, a Home Energy Score can benefit your home sales in a number of ways. This energy score gives home buyers, sellers, and owners valuable information about a home’s energy use — in a way that is credible and easy to understand. In addition, it gives potential buyers more insight into the full costs of owning a home. Portland area home buyers consider energy efficiency an important factor when buying a home; therefore, Home Energy Score assessments can help you better serve your clients.
