Energy Commission Offers “Green” Real Estate Presentation

Craig Foley

Are you interested in purchasing a home that has incorporated energy-efficiency upgrades, or are you selling your home and want to make sure that buyers recognize the value of sustainability improvements?

If so, you’ll want to hear Craig Foley, Chief of Energy Solutions for RE/MAX, speak at the next Melrose Energy Commission meeting on June 25 at 7:15 p.m. The MEC meeting will be held in the Mayor’s Conference Room at Melrose City Hall, 562 Main St.

Foley’s presentation will address the various ways home buyers and sellers are able to access energy-efficiency information. “More and more, real estate agencies are including ‘green data fields’ in their listings so buyers can make choices based on sustainability,” he explains. “In addition, there are a number of new programs and legislative proposals to help consumers understand energy costs when buying or leasing a property.”

“I would recommend this presentation to anyone who wants to find out about the future of real estate and what the industry is doing to promote efficiency,” says Tyler Ballew, MEC co-chair. “Craig’s background in real estate and energy management enables him to offer an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at these issues.”

This event is free and open to the public. For further information, contact MEC at 781-662-2616 or additional information about Foley, visit
