A LEED home is the best-performing home on the block.
Designed and built for performance, every LEED home is third-party-inspected, tested and verified. LEED homes are gentler on the environment and on your wallet, delivering lower utility bills and requiring less maintenance.
USGBC offers two certification pathways for homes: single family and multifamily.
The quality you want, the savings you deserve.
Higher quality: Green homes are built better. They are healthier, more comfortable and require less maintenance.
Each LEED-certified home undergoes required onsite inspections and performance testing by an independent expert to ensure that you are getting what you paid for.
Onsite inspection of the insulation, air sealing and heating and cooling system installation ensures your home can comfortably heat and cool itself with minimal energy use. Hot or cold rooms become a thing of the past!
LEED-certified homes are designed to maximize fresh air indoors and minimize exposure to airborne toxins and pollutants. Quality air filtration systems ensure less dust and allergens in your home.
Savings: Using less energy and water means lower monthly bills.
On average, LEED-certified homes use 20–30 percent less energy than a home built to code, with some homes reporting up to 60 percent savings. Using less energy means lower utility bills each month.
Properly sealed and climate-controlled interiors, quality insulation and air-sealing techniques help keep your home running optimally and comfortably.
LEED homes are also designed to minimize indoor and outdoor water usage. Low-flow fixtures and fittings, efficient irrigation systems, water-efficient appliances and enhanced plumbing and fixtures designed to protect against leaks and moisture are some common features found in LEED homes.
Value: Boost your home value.

Green homes can be built for the same cost as conventional homes with proper planning, and they’re often resold for up to 8 percent more money and in less time than traditional homes.
LEED homes can qualify for discounted insurance, tax breaks and other incentives.
LEED homes consistently sell for higher prices and on faster timelines than homes of similar size in communities across the world. Some LEED homes report commanding an 8 percent premium in resale value over conventional homes.
