Earth Day in Scottsdale

Today as we wake up in Scottsdale it’s already 90 degrees with the projected high being 102. (Out of towners don’t panic this is a bit warm seasonally.)  With these temperatures a good percentage of residents are using their AC. But on the same day they very well may be heating their pool.

With that being said there’s plenty of call for energy efficient features in Scottsdale real estate.

Searching the MLS for homes with green features is pretty straight forward. One thing to be aware of is though that not all listings will fully document the green features and some may be missing from the MLS record.
