With diminishing home values, every purchase for the home has to count. With green energy on everyone’s mind purchasing a corn burning appliance for your home makes great dollars and sense.
While you are enjoying a 60 plus return on your investment every year in heating costs you are increasing the value of your home. A typical increase in value would be $3500.00. Added to this value is the fact that your home will be more attractive to a home buyer that is energy conscience and wants more money put in his or her pocket to make house payments.
If the time comes to sell your home, you may want to consider using a real estate agent who sees the value in alternative heating or is sensitive to green homes. As time goes on, I think we’ll see realtor and home buyers paying more attention to the energy efficient benefits each potential home offers.
