Florida builder Riverside Homes is the January 2021 RESNET HERS Index Builder of the Month. Riverside Homes is a locally owned Jacksonville, FL, home builder that is committed to providing exceptional value, quality and innovative designs that homeowners are looking for. In 2020, Riverside Homes closed 120 houses across Amelia Island, Fleming Island, Fernandina Beach, Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra, St. Augustine, and Yulee. Online Sales and Marketing Manager Andrea Johnson says, “The HERS Index score is changing the way people shop for homes by helping consumers better understand the relative energy efficiency of a home as well as the long-term savings or spending that will be incurred with the home purchase. With one in two new construction buyers listing energy efficiency as a top desired home characteristic, Riverside Homes team is committed to designing floor plans that reflect today’s homebuyers wants and needs. Energy efficiency is quickly becoming a standard feature that all homeowners desire, and they should not settle for anything less.” She adds, “One of our most cherished accomplishments is building each and every Riverside Home to qualify and meet HERS standards. We proudly display the HERS rating of each model home in the model’s sales office to immediately showcase the importance we place on building energy efficient homes. During our one-on-one meetings with prospective homebuyers, we prove this commitment by showcasing collateral with our low HERS ratings. The HERS Index score is presented to all buyers when they purchase a new Riverside Home, which provides value should the buyer ever decide to list their home.” Read more of the profile here.
