An Energy Efficient Mortgage (EEM) takes into account a home’s energy efficiency in setting terms of the mortgage itself. It lets borrowers finance cost-effective, energy-saving measures as part of a single mortgage and stretch debt-to-income qualifying ratios on loans, this means you can qualify for a larger loan amount and a more energy-efficient home.
Many lending institutions are beginning to offer home improvement loans to make your house more energy efficient. When applying for these loans, make sure to include a copy of your contract with your certified energy efficiency contractor.
