energy efficiency

A new Semler home can prove their energy efficiency. Many of today's new homes are energy tested by independent Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) raters who assign a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) score. MN Green Path homes provide a Home Performance Report to allow you to compare expected energy use.

total customization

With a new Semler home, you get to customize everything. You get to pick the lot, pick your floor plan and pick your options rather than compromise and make due with things a previous homeowner selection.

high Quality construction

A Semler Homes' new construction home involves a much higher level of quality construction than used homes that were built several years ago. Due to updated construction practices and new building codes, buyers get a higher quality, more energy efficient home. In fact, homes built to the current Minnesota building code are about 20 percent more efficient than the average new home built in the United States.
