Energy Efficient Mortgages - Energy Efficient Mortgages (EEM) and Energy Improvement Mortgages (EIM) allow home buyers to credit a home's energy efficiency in the mortgage itself. EEMs give borrowers the opportunity to finance energy-saving measures as part of a single mortgage and stretch debt-to-income qualifying ratios on loans thereby allowing borrowers to qualify for a larger loan amount and a more energy-efficient home. EIMs are used to purchase existing homes that will have energy efficiency improvements made to them. EIMs allow borrowers to include the cost of energy-efficiency improvements to an existing home in the mortgage without increasing the down payment. EIMs allow the borrower to use the money saved in utility bills to finance energy improvements. For more, visit the Energy Star site: EIM & EEM Home Financing
