BILD Alberta is creating a Housing Cost Index to identify the financial impact of government policies on land development and new home construction.
This preliminary survey will provide further information on the project and determine those who are willing to participate in the more comprehensive survey later this year.
This information will increase the strength and credibility of our advocacy and recommendations made on policy matters such as:
- Inclusionary Housing;
- Financing due to delays;
- Changes to the building code; and
- Increasing costs related to materials or labour.
The goal is to conduct a similar project every two years to continually assess the costs posing the greatest burden on the industry and new home buyers.
