3. Why is making payments on my property tax bill a great idea?
Making payments on your property tax bill is a great idea for many reasons. First, it saves you money. PACE financing may have tax benefits, which reduces your effective cost. Additionally, just like property tax, the payments may stay with the property when you move. The new owner makes future payments while also enjoying the energy and tax savings benefits. Further, depending on when you install your upgrade, you won’t have to make a payment for up to 17 months. There are many more benefits to this innovative financing. Please contact one of our certified Ygrene contractors or Ygrene financing specialists to learn more.
4. Why would I use Ygrene financing over traditional financing?
Ygrene beats traditional financing hands down. Our longer terms and potential tax advantages deliver the lowest monthly payments – saving you 50% or more over traditional financing. Add in other benefits such as payments that stay with your property, zero money down and no payments for up to 17 months, and it’s easy to see why Ygrene is America’s best financing option.
