ADD VALUE WITH THIRD-PARTY CERTIFICATION
Voluntary, third-party certifications provide documentation that homes are built above code. Documentation for certifications increase buyer confidence and show a home has high-performance features and systems. These homes may also appraise at a sales premium. There are several green residential certification systems available. NAHB has developed a comparison matrix to help you assess which program(s) is best for you and your market. This matrix is a great starting point to uncovering other certifications or ratings in your market.
