Beyond the Mortgage Payment

There’s more to housing costs than a mortgage payment. Homeowners pay a significant amount for gas and electric, so when we build or rehab a home, we pay attention not just to what it takes to buy it, but also how much it will cost to live in it.

We just received the Luzia Energy Report on our Emerson Townhomes development in Heritage Park, and our attention to efficiency shows: the estimated monthly cost for gas and electric is $69 per month on average—better performance than 96% of similar homes.

That’s one little part of making homes that families can not only afford to buy, but also afford to live in.

  • The class really prepared me for the entire process, and I’m so happy that it was offered. It made this long process much easier to understand.
