This month’s Builder of the Month is Allen Edwin Homes, a Builder Magazine Top 100 builder, serving Michigan and Indiana. In this month’s feature, we asked Marketing Manager Rachel Sabo to share some insight on building HERS® homes for their customers. “We build 100% of our homes, over 700 per year, each with a HERS® rating. We realize the importance to the buyer of knowing that the steps we take in constructing their home separate us from the used homes and those of other builders. Our homeowners quickly see savings and often respond to our customer satisfaction surveys that they now have lower heating and cooling bills in their new (and larger) Allen Edwin Home than they did in their (smaller) previous home.” Rachel adds, “Our buyers and our REALTOR partners LOVE the HERS® rated homes. When they see the HERS® score their home receives at the time of closing, they are often blown away by seeing a 30%, 40%, and even 50% savings as compared to used homes in our markets.” “Homebuilding technology is available for builders to incorporate money-saving energy efficiency in a home that will give homebuyers lifelong savings. We believe that the investment upfront to do so is a simple responsibility that all home builders should but don’t take. To make the investment in time and money upfront to do so is one that will pay dividends for our homebuyers and us as a home builder in referrals for years to come”. Read more of the profile here.
