It has been very common for potential buyers to request to see utility bills for the past year. An "energy efficiency factor" is just an extension of that. As a buyer, wouldn't you want to know?

That is a private seller buyer issue. Idiot liberals need to quit telling people how to live. The Bend council is a cesspool of liberals.

Absolutely not! Let the buyer do their own due-diligence

If a buyer wants this information, they can pay to research the property they are buying. Just like buying a used car, it is the buyer's responsibility to understand the mpg of that vehicle.

This is just another hidden tax against the equity in your home. And there are those who question and wonder why the cost of property is getting more expensive.

Just another liberal money- making scheme under the guise of improving the environment. There are already too many unfair fees involved in selling a home. Another example of too much government

Mandatory scorecard program will cost the buyer money and delay closings. Energy efficient items can be disclosed by seller and builder. Real estate agents, as myself, can help obtain information.

In response to the "Yes" section of this poll, buyer may request utility bill information from seller if it is important for them to know. No need to have a costly mandated scorecard.

The scores are an arbitrary number that are not understood by most homeowners. Requiring an energy audit without first trying it as an incentive program is a reckless use of resources.

If the purchaser wants to know they can pay for a test. The existing homeowners should not have to pay for it.

Just another sneaky back door way fro the city of Bend to take money from home owners pockets. Too bad the city can't learn to live within their means like everyone else has to! Enough is enough!!

This is just another expense for homeowners that does nothing to improve energy effiency. Why not spend that money to actually make some improvements to a home?

This ecosystem is as dependent on fire as it is on rain.
