San Francisco Wants You To be a HERO

This is the year to upgrade your home so that it’s more energy efficient. The latest Zephyr Market Tracker reports that San Francisco has just joined the ranks of California cities that have approved the Home Energy Renovation Opportunity (HERO) and Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) programs.

You can apply for these programs starting in the Spring to help finance upgrades like solar power, energy-saving windows and doors, insulation and more.

Also in this edition of Market Tracker is a lineup of local museums that offer free admission on certain days and weekends. Did you know that it’s free to get into the Asian Art Museum on the first Sunday of every month? There are a lot more freebies out there.

All this plus a look at homes currently on the market that have their own outdoor space, along with the latest San Francisco market stats and sales. It’s all here in the Zephyr Market Tracker!
