Save Money. Be IveyWise.

Categories: Blog, Energy Efficiency, Purchasing a New Home | Posted: February 15, 2018

IveyWiseIveyWise, developed exclusively by Ivey Homes, includes features and benefits that ensure your new home is on the cutting edge of efficiency. An Ivey Home employs the most progressive construction techniques while maintaining affordability and beauty. Saving money is easy with an Ivey Home because:

  • Lowering your energy bill
    • Each IveyWise home is third-party rated and given a HERS Index Score that serves as the MPG for your new home. The lower the score the less you pay in energy bills!
    • IveyWise homes are 100% ENERGY STAR Certified new homes which save on average 15-30% on monthly utility bills.
  • Buying sooner rather than later
    • Development costs, raw material costs, and construction labor are all steadily going up, which means the prices of homes will continue to rise.
    • Being IveyWise means checking interest rate projections. On top of the rising costs listed above, interest rates are on the rise as well. With the projected rate for 2018 to go up to 4.40%, purchasing now could save you up to $150 a month.
  • Buying vs Renting
    • IveyWise buyers know there are several pluses for buying a home instead of renting, to include: tax breaks, money going towards equity, more space for less money. You can deduct your yearly mortgage interest on taxes, as well as, your annual property taxes.
    • Each month, part of your monthly payment goes toward principle reduction on the balance of your loan. Through the power of amortization, each month the amount applied to principle increases, thus increasing your equity at a higher rate.
    • With a home, you get more square footage to live, work, and play. Getting a larger apartment would cost more per square footage than purchasing a home.
