Free Trees & Plants – Seattle Curb Appeal & Do A FHA Energy Efficient Mortgage
Go Green – Plant a Tree!
One of the ways that you can generate curb appeal for your properties is through a beautification effort and that does not mean taking a hit from your operating budget.
Here are three ways to get free trees or plants for your properties. Free Trees & Plants – Very simple way to get trees and plants. This is a not-for profit foundation that collects plants from nurseries that would be thrown away. They nurture the plants and ship them to you. You only pay for shipping and handling. http://www.freetreesandplants.com/
Arbor Day Foundation – When you sign up for a six month membership, you get 10 free trees shipped for free. http://www.arborday.org/
We find that homeowners like the idea of being “Green” for the environment and not having to spend alot of money at the same time. Arbor Day Foundation is one of the best and inexpensive ways to achieve this goal.
I specialize in helping new homeowners in the Seattle, Lynnwood, Edmonds and Bothell area that are interested in receiving an Energy Efficient Mortgage that can be financed above the FHA mortgage loan or a VA Loan. This is often times more attractive and helps in saving money due to better efficiency standards.
We have contacts that will assist us with the HERS Rating and Energy Efficiency that is required when you are interested in this type of financing.
Here are a few examples that can be used in addition to your FHA Loan with the Energy Efficient Mortgage:
- Replacing a furnace/cooling system
- Fixing or replacing a chimney
- Insulating an attic, crawl space, and/or pipes and air ducts
- Replacing doors or windows
