John Brauc, Checkmate Realty

John Brauc of Checkmate Realty, who's been using the program for "seven or eight years," said it's meant he's typically needed only 15 percent down instead of 20 percent when purchasing properties.
Brauc said he started with "simple stuff" like windows, doors and boilers, then he discovered the benefits of retrofitting roof and steam-pipe insulation. "It allows me to take a troubled asset, come in with less cash, save myself money and makes my tenants more comfortable," he said. Down the road, he added, not only are fuel and electric bills lower, but also the building will be worth more "because it's going to cash flow better."
Savings on water consumption is another issue that Brauc has been focusing on more and more, as his average bills have skyrocketed from $500-$600 per building per year to more like $1,300-$1,400, which Wheaton says has been typical for the city and suburbs that get their water from Chicago.
Brauc has installed some low-flow showers and toilets, and trained his staff to monitor for leaky faucets-and asked tenants to do the same.
Energy retrofits are more of a no-brainer when you're first purchasing a building because they allow you to come in with less cash, Brauc said. But over time, as long as you're in the market for the long haul, he's come to realize that they make sense even for buildings you already own.
"It took me a little bit to see the light," he said. "I'm not in the market to fix-and-flip.
But Brauc said selling the service to his fellow building owners can be frustrating and takes repetition. He remembered being out for drinks with another owner and enthusiastically recounting how he had saved $80,000 on steam-pipe insulations through rebates.
The reaction? "Yeah, whatever," Brauc recalled, making a hand motion that signified guzzling another mouthful of beer.
