A message from your HBAV President Dan Sandoval:
With the spread of the corona virus hitting all industries, the Home Builders Association of Virginia along with NAHB and our local associations are working to limit its effects on the housing industry. As outlined in previous messages, HBAV is working diligently to identify ways that our industry may be affected and communicating the importance that home building industry has to the citizens of Virginia and the Virginia Economy.
None the less, HBAV members need to be prepared for the possibility of disruption and delays to normal business. Depending on the local government and the builder’s vendor partners, delay may come in the form of permit issuance, inspections, closings, access to materials, etc. They may also come in the form of project delays by local boards and councils. HBAV urges members to check with their vendor partners and watch their cash reserves during these turbulent times.
