Energy-Wise Realty is an affiliate company of Carstairs Energy. Energy-Wise Realty was created out of a need for Real Estate professionals to understand the energy features and benefits in homes built today and to be able to convey those features to buyers. Homes built under the latest 2016 California Energy Code achieve a high level of energy efficiency compared to existing homes. According to the California Energy Commission "Single family homes built to the 2016 standards will use about 28% less energy for lighting, heating, cooling, ventilation, and water heating than those built to the 2013 standards. On Average the 2016 Building Energy Efficiency Standards will increase the cost of constructing a new home by about $2700, but will save $7400 in energy and maintenance costs over 30 years." The goal of Energy-Wise Realty is to transfer awareness of this benefit to home buyers today.
Energy-Wise Realty specializes in marketing New Construction and energy-efficient properties. Energy-Wise Realty offers a full range of services to clients within San Luis Obispo County and can refer Carstairs Energy clients who are outside the San Luis Obispo area to a preferred list of Realtors in California. With a referral (at no cost to the client) we work with the referred Realtor and provide marketing materials that demonstrates the energy efficiency and benefits of the newly constructed or renovated home.
