BUILD-PAC'S NEW "FAIR SHARE" PROGRAM

BUILD-PAC's new Fair Share campaign is the easiest way to get involved in the political process. We are asking every member to do their Fair Share for the housing industry by contributing just $25 to BUILD-PAC during the 2015-2016 election cycle.


What would happen if every NAHB member did their Fair Share? 
If every member does their Fair Share and invests a minimum of $25, then BUILD-PAC will be a $3.5 Million PAC. This would allow BUILD-PAC and housing to have an even greater impact in the 2016 elections. 

What is my Fair Share going toward? 
Your contribution helps elect pro-housing, pro-business candidates who will support our issues and fight for housing in Congress.

How can I help with the Fair Share campaign? 
Please help your state meet its goal. During your state and local meetings back home, ask your peers to do their Fair Share for housing by contributing just $25 to BUILD-PAC in this election cycle. If every member does their Fair Share, then BUILD-PAC's voice will be LOUDER and STRONGER than ever before.

Questions? For more information contact BUILD-PAC staff.

Sales of newly built, single-family homes rose 4.3% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 490,000 units in November, according to newly released data from HUD and the U.S. Census Bureau.


"It is encouraging to see new-home sales continue to tick upward," said NAHB Chairman Tom Woods. "Builders are also increasing their inventory even as they face difficulties accessing lots and labor."

Regionally, sales rose 20.5% in the West and 4.5% in the South. Sales fell 28.6% in the Northeast and 8.6% in the Midwest.

"Limited gains in new-home sales can be attributed to a weak existing sales report," said NAHB Chief Economist David Crowe. "People who already own a house comprise most of the new residential construction market, and they often must sell their existing home before making another purchase."

The inventory of new homes for sale was 232,000 units in November. This is a 5.7-month supply at the current sales pace.


 
Education


Residential Builders must earn 6 CEU credits each year, even with a multi-year license.
