LEED Certified

LEED stands for leadership in energy and environmental design. LEED certification provides third-party assurance to home buyers that their home complies with rigorous technical requirements for energy and water efficiency, indoor air quality, non-toxic materials, and environmental performance.  Homes that are certified through LEED complete a verification process that includes home energy ratings and onsite inspections.  Lower insurance rates, advantageous financing, and government incentives may be available for LEED certified homes.
