How to Make Money with REM/Rate™

There are a growing number of opportunities to use REM/Rate to facilitate the building process and provide builders and buyers significant incentives at the same time. A single REM/Rate run can document qualification for ENERGY STAR®, a HERS rating, a $2,000 federal tax credit for builders, performance based code compliance, beyond code utility incentives and a .25% reduction in a buyer's mortgage rate in Washington State. Even existing homes in Washington can qualify for the .25% mortgage rate reduction by including a documented 10% energy use reduction retrofit at time of financing.
