What Builders Need to Know About LEED® for Multi-Family Homes

freegoogle_constructionWhat is LEED® for Homes?

LEED® for Homes is a sustainable energy rating system that certifies performance points.

LEED®-certified buildings are built to be healthy and provide clean indoor air, incorporating safe building materials, and access to daylight and views of nature.

They are designed to use less energy and water, which means lower utility bills.

Being LEED® certified makes it easier to sell homes.

LEED® Homes create value by selling quicker and for more money than comparable non-green homes.

The 2015 Green Building Economic Impact Study found that the residential green construction market is expected to grow from $55 million in 2015 to $100.4 million in 2018, representing a year-over-year growth of 24.5 percent.

According to McGraw-Hill Construction’s SmartMarket Report, 40% of builders agreed “green” makes it easier to sell homes.

High performing and energy efficient building features enter into tenants’ decisions about leasing space and into buyers’ decisions about purchasing properties and homes.

Major priority areas include more energy-efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning, windows, lighting, plumbing fixtures, and other key technologies.

As the industry standard, and the recognized leader in innovative design, LEED® for is poised to expand exponentially as a result of this trillion-dollar market of sustainable design.

LEED®-certified buildings with lower operating costs and better indoor environmental quality are more attractive to corporate, public and individual buyers.
