Homes and buildings achieving good HERS scores are well-positioned to seek third-party green building certifications, including certification to the rigorous and cost-effective National Green Building Standard (NGBS). Market research reveals that homebuyers and renters now value green features, like healthy indoor environments and durable products, over energy efficiency, and appraisers are increasingly valuating green homes for higher amounts. The ability to offer green verification services in addition to energy testing/rating can help a RESNET rater stay profitable in a changing market. Join this workshop to learn more and hear from accredited NGBS Green Verifiers who have helped clients transition to seek both HERS scores and third-party NGBS Green Certification.
