Home Expo Reservations Open

We don't know what the future holds for us with COVID-19 still out there, but we have to make a plan. The hope is that things will return to normal soon and that we will be able to proceed as normal, or close to it, with the 2021 Home Expo. Therefore, we are sending out the information packet and will start accepting reservations.

Please keep in mind that things can, and probably will, change. We will keep you posted.

Early bird rates are in effect until September 11th. This is a much shorter time than normal, so please let us know soon if you think you will participate in the 2021 Home Expo. If you are interested in participating, but not yet ready to commit to making a reservation, we understand. Please let me know and I will keep a list of interested vendors so I can follow up at a later date.

What Home Buyers Really Want  
As a builder, remodeler, housing professional, the end goal is to deliver the home and community that today's home buyers want and are willing to pay for.
What Home Buyers Really Want, 2019 Edition, based on a comprehensive, nationwide survey of prospective home buyers, is the latest in NAHB's long commitment to home buyer preferences research. This invaluable resource has more than 300 pages of data, graphs, and charts. The analysis shows not only what the typical, average buyer wants in terms of features, layout, technology or community amenities, but also how those preferences differ based on demographic factors, such as age, race/ethnicity, geographic location, income or price point. Plus learn, what features that may cause a significant share of buyers to explicitly reject a home.
It is more important than ever for you to have accurate information to make the best business decisions.
