Why People Trust Home Builders Association Members

  • They know you’re professional
  • You’re dependable
  • They’ll know you’re among the best in your field!

Today’s consumers are internet-savvy. With resources like Angie’s List and the Better Business Bureau readily available online, it’s easy for consumers to research any company before they do business with them. Most consumers want to know that the company they choose to do business with is reliable, ethical, and has their best interests in mind. Joining HBRMV gives you a “stamp of approval” that shows potential customers by choosing you, they’re choosing among the best in our area. Mohawk Valley consumers already have a level of trust with us – they know we expect our members to adhere to practices that meet or exceed common standards. So as a member of HBRMV, you’ll already have a foot in the door with consumers, which will allow you to form a better relationship with them, sooner.

Last year, NAHB saved the typical builder member $6,200 on every new home they started. You can learn more about the value of a membership at valueofnahb.org.

With a NAHB membership, you will be supporting continued efforts on key issues, such as:

    • Protecting the mortgage interest deduction.
      As lawmakers grapple with tax reform, several critical housing tax provisions could come into the crosshairs – including the mortgage interest deduction, the Low Income Housing Tax Credit, the deduction for state and local income taxes, and more. Acting per-emptively in this area, NAHB has created a consumer-oriented website, ProtectHomeownership.com, which educates the public on the importance of preserving the mortgage interest deduction as a cornerstone of American housing policy. NAHB will be actively engaged in the debate if threats to housing tax provisions materialize in the year ahead.

 

    • Fighting onerous regulations that cost builders and remodelers time and money.
      NAHB is in the forefront in preventing expensive, pointless regulations from impeding home building and remodeling and adding unnecessary costs to consumers. From overly broad stormwater permit requirements that would literally regulate puddles under the Clean Water Act, to far-reaching Endangered Species Act requirements and lead paint rules that cost remodelers jobs and money, NAHB is leading the fight to rein in unnecessary and burdensome regulations that harm the industry and consumers.

 

    • Fixing a broken appraisal Process.
      A distressed property should not be compared to a new home. Appraisals should not come in below a contract sales price for a house. NAHB continues to make progress with regulators and members of the appraisal industry to correct these major flaws in the appraisal process and ensure that appraisals accurately reflect true market values.

 

  • Protecting the 30-year mortgage.
    As Congress works to restructure the nation’s housing finance system, NAHB believes it must include a federal backstop to ensure that 30-year, fixed rate mortgages and reliable mortgage financing for multifamily housing remain readily available and affordable. With competing House and Senate legislative proposals pending in Congress, NAHB has compiled several important resources to keep our members informed about the debate that can be accessed atnahb.org/HousingFinanceReform. NAHB’s active engagement on housing finance reform with the Administration, members of Congress and regulators has given the association a seat at the table as deliberations move forward.
