Questions to Ask
Things to know before you buy a new house
So you want to know more about the homes you're looking at than the usual
list of size, price and features? You might be interested in a high-performing
home? How can you find out more? Here are some questions to ask to help
you compare the homes and builders you're considering.
Since this fact sheet was developed, national programs --
ENERGY STAR Certified Homes
DOE Challenge Home -- have made it easier for the home buyer by
including requirements that address these issues. Rather than asking so
many questions, you only need to look for the label. If there is no
label, ask the builder about it.
