When it comes to what home buyers want in a new home, things have dramatically shifted. The months of stay-at-home isolation due to the coronavirus have caused many home owners to view their homes in a new light. As a result, many of the features and systems they are now prioritizing focus on the home’s performance. Increased comfort, lower operating costs, low maintenance and healthier homes are moving from the ”want” to ”need” column. Learn how to design and build new homes that meet the high performance demands of the new, experienced buyer.

  • Identify high performance design and construction strategies that can create a healthier indoor environment.
  • Discuss how low maintenance and more durable material choices can increase home performance.
  • Examine how building and mechanical systems choices and applications can lower utility bills and increase indoor air quality.
  • Explore how to communicate the value of high performance systems and features to potential homebuyers in a way they understand and give you a competitive edge.
