"Look beyond the number of bedrooms and bathrooms when visiting homes for sale," says Mark Clement, co-host of MyFixitUpLife home improvement talk show. "Homebuyers should walk in with a checklist that includes seeking out ENERGY STAR® qualified appliances, windows and HVAC systems. They should also be looking for a roof with an exceptional warranty, an energy-efficient fiberglass entry door, and preferably an insulated precast concrete basement. Low-maintenance exterior siding, trim shutters and other details also play into the equation."
