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) "
