Builder Review Daily is highlighting your HBA’s Top 12 actions this Spring on behalf of home builders.

Number 8, 12 Webinars:

NAHB has produced nearly a dozen educational webinars since the IBS that have brought expert instruction and advice directly to our members’ offices and local HBAs.

NAHB webinars provide up-to-the-minute education on industry issues, trends and best practices. They are designed to meet the needs of a broad range of participants, including builders, remodelers, sales and marketing professionals, real estate agents, brokers, multifamily professionals, architects and designers. Because these events are relatively inexpensive to produce, they provide a cost-effective way to reach out to our members with the information they need to improve their businesses. In the year to date, some of our most popular webinars have focused on universal design techniques, the future of aging-in-place remodeling, findings of our cost of doing business study, and marketing and design trends. Another very well-attended webinar offering was our Builders Guide to Appraisals webinar, which was offered free to members on May 16 and provided expert advice on improving communications with lenders and appraisers, dealing with appraisals in distressed markets, and ways to address appraisal errors, among other subjects. Yet another always-popular offering was the Spring Construction Forecast webinar, in which three world-class economists offered presentations and took questions regarding the current and expected state of the housing industry and its components. Altogether, our webinars have been viewed by members across at least 42 HBAs from more than 1,000 sites across the country since the IBS. Contact: Steve Melman (800-368-5242 x8245).
