Value for High Performance Homes
Elevate Energy’s real estate team works to ensure that high performance homes—those using clean energy and fewer energy and water resources—are consistently and fairly valued when bought and sold. This lays the groundwork for a cycle in which homeowners are eager to invest in high performance improvements because they know they will be able to recover some or all of their investment when they sell their home.
Elevate Energy acts as a facilitator, both nationally and locally, aligning the process, players, and assets needed to make the value of high performance upgrades visible in the real estate transaction.
Elevate Energy’s team of experts have been instrumental in answering questions, providing resources, and connecting us to industry stakeholders in our efforts to green the MLS directories in North Carolina.

What is a High Performance Home?
We define a high performance home as one that uses fewer resources—like energy and water—than a typical home. High performance homes often have a third-party issued verification that demonstrates that the home meets a set of minimum standards.
