WATCH WITH YOUR FAMILY!
PDX HIVE collaborated with Adventure Family Journal on this green energy segment. We visited Tilamook Row to learn how Stephen Aiguier from Green Hammer explains Net Zero to a 5-year old (pretty impressive!)
Home Energy Scores
As of January 2018, the City of Portland requires sellers who publicly list a home (single family or townhouse) to include a Home Energy Score in their listing. This score provides information on the home's energy efficiency level based on the physical characteristics of the home. Similar to an MPG rating for a car, the 1-10 rating allows buyers to have insight into the full costs of owning a home.
PDX HIVE is a certified City of Portland Home Energy Score service provider.
As part of our ethical standards, PDX HIVE does not offer improvement services or collect referrals fees from our energy improvement service providers.
We offer a thorough, ten-point home inspection to evaluate the condition of your home and identify any potential issues that may come up in the future. At the end, we send you a comprehensive report that includes photos, illustrations, and links that you can click on to learn more about each component. Our Lead Inspector is ASHI trained, and our unbiased evaluations are presented in a way that you can understand. We summarize key observations at the top of your report, prioritizing any major concerns and safety issues, and providing additional details and resources throughout the report.
PDX HIVE partners with service provider affiliates to offer multiple real estate services, all in one place. All of these services can be conveniently booked through PDX HIVE and are offered by vetted industry experts.

How We're Different
PDX HIVE is committed to providing our clients with helpful resources, education and unbiased information. We do not offer improvement services or take referral fees from our improvement service partners, and we are not affiliated with a real estate agency.
PDX HIVE has conducted over 55 Home Energy Score trainings for CE credit to help real estate professionals understand the new City of Portland Home Energy Score program and the required steps for compliance. At the end of our Home Energy Score assessments, we add extra time to walk-through improvement options and help explain the report so your clients are informed and educated. We are available for any follow-up questions and are always here to help support you throughout your buying/selling process.
