Builders Testimonials
"As a small to mid-size builder in a rura l market, we were   n't sure this would provide value for us. Our first quarterly rebate covered both our annual dues to our local home builders association and the staff time to complete the simple rebate request form. Three quarters of bonus rebates! Definitely a benefit worthy of membership! Gregg Moneyhun, Shelter Alternatives, Inc. (VA)

"The HBAV Rebate Program offers a great incentive for home builders in Virginia. We were very excited to receive over $2,300 dollars in rebates. There are a variety of companies and quality products involved with the program, with more being added.
every quarter. The submittal process is easy and painless, with minimal forms required. We look forward to receiving more rebates in the future." Caskey Hunt, Southern Development Homes (VA) "

The Habitat for Humanity ReStore takes in usable building material and home improvement item donations and resells back to the public at a substantial discount. 

The ReStore helps local businesses and residents by removing gently used items like cabinets, building materials, and appliances utilizing our 30 foot box truck and pick-up service. 

We can save contractors dumpster fees by picking up these materials directly from your worksite. If your workshop has gathered bits and pieces over the years we can help you recover your expensive workspace by removing saleable items you no longer use. 

All ReStore profits go directly to Western Lake Superior Habitat for Humanity and our build program.

Tax Reform Toolkit: Changes to the Business Interest Deduction
 on  (0)
The business interest deduction has been a staple of the tax code for over a century. Deducting interest is important in home building, as debt is a critical financing tool and access to equity markets is challenging for the majority of home builders.
The new tax law alters the business interest deduction (BID) by placing a cap on the amount of interest a taxpayer may deduct. That's the bad news. The good news is that an exception was made for real estate businesses.
