Insight Homes received Regal Awards for the following categories: Best Informational Brochure or Booklet, Best Interior Merchandising for the Science Center, Best Green Community Home Up to 2,000 sq ft for the Drake floor plan, Best Green Community Home 3,000 to 4,000 sq ft for the Cartwright floor plan, Best Affordable Community Home for the Vandelay floor plan, and Best Active Adult Community Home Up to 2,000 sq ft for the Vandelay floor plan. Nine members of the sales team took home awards for individual achievements. 

The Regal Awards were presented Friday, May 18, 2018 at Bethany Beach Ocean Suites in Bethany Beach by the Home Builders Association of Delaware (HBADE).

HBADE Regal Awards have recognized building excellence in Delaware for 26 years. Regal Awards spotlight outstanding achievements in Delaware's Home Building industry. Every submission is reviewed by a panel of qualified industry experts and assigned a score based on specific criteria. In the case of the Best Green Home awards, more than just technical features are taken into consideration. Important elements like sales success, design thoughtfulness, and overall value are also factored into the scoring. 

“Our team works hard all year to ensure that we are delivering the most energy efficient homes to our customers,” said Insight Homes President, Rob Elliott. “While we love winning awards, that’s not the reason we do it. We do it because we want our customers to enjoy a better quality of life. We’re thrilled that this organization recognizes all our hard work. While many of these awards are for excellence in building green homes, others are for the functionality and beauty of the homes we build - proving that Insight Homes truly does build a better home.”

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, Insight Homes is in a select group of top builders in the nation who have certified one or more homes that meet or exceed Zero Energy Ready Home guidelines for excellence in performance and energy efficiency (less than 1% of the 36,000 builders in the U.S. meet this criteria). Insight Homes builds homes certified to rigorous DOE Zero Energy Ready Home National Guidelines that are at least 40%-50% more energy efficient than a typical new home. Additionally, Insight Homes was awarded Builder of the Year for 2017 by Green Home Builder Magazine. With standard features like a conditioned crawl space, 18-SEER HVAC units, 2” x 6” construction, super low-e windows, tankless hot water, and a whole host of other features - all included at no extra cost - Insight Homes is committed to building a home that is far superior to the competition. 

With several exciting new projects on the horizon, Insight Homes urges consumers to keep checking their website to stay up to date.
