** Our Livability Categories are only meant to be used as a guide to understand the potential benefit of various home features.  The Livability Categories are periodically updated to incorporate newer technology, energy and water efficiency or sustainability features. Any new information about the potential benefits may affect an existing property’s  assigned Livability Categories without notice. A property's features, and their corresponding Livability Categories, have not been independently verified and should be taken only as an indicator based upon the information provided in the listing.  Please contact the owner or listing agent for additional information and to arrange an in-person visit of the property to verify listing information.  You should also consider hiring an expert such as a home energy auditor, home inspector, and other real estate professionals who can verify the property's features and likely benefits.
