Getting ready to sell. Does Pflugerville require seller to have a home energy audit done before selling?

Help the community by answering this question:


Be thankful that ECAD is not a requirement in Pflugerville...these audits are essentially a big waste of time and only raises the cost of selling.

However, I would recommend you gather plenty of information on market conditions, then do all you can to make sure your home is in the top 2 or 3 homes on the market in your community. Having other sellers compete against you is much better the you competing against them.

That is a very good question. The good news is that currently Pflugerville does NOT require an energy audit be done on homes being sold. However, it might be a good idea to have a professional Realtor tour your home and give you some advice on repairs and staging IF needed. Feel free to call me anytime. I have lived in Pflugerville over 20 years and I'd be happy to help.

Congratulations on your decision!!
Energy Audit is not required for the City of Pflugerville properties, but yes in the City of Austin. It is your choice to contract a licensed company if you like to find out how could you increase energy savings for your property. Any other questions feel free to contact me.

Hello Nquinn,

No, Austin requires this but not Pflugerville. You are good to go.
