One oft-cited explanation for underinvestment in residential energy efficiency is that homeowners do not expect to occupy their homes long enough to realize benefits that offset their investment costs. This is problematic because homeowners may not believe that the energy efficiency features of a home will be capitalized in the selling price. In this paper, RFF looks for evidence of such capitalization using data from real estate multiple listing services (MLS) in three metropolitan areas: the Research Triangle region of North Carolina; Austin, Texas; and Portland, Oregon.
