Last week Spokane Home Builders Association staff and members participated in Habitat for Humanity’s Blitz Build 2020. Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that helps families build and improve places to call home. This natural partnership revolves around a common value, that attainable housing plays a critical role in strong and stable communities.
Now more than ever it is crucial that our region works to provide attainable housing at all cost levels. With record low housing inventory, new home and remodel construction must be prioritized to create more and better homes for families in our community and create opportunities for those currently renting to purchase a home.
This is where the Spokane Home Builders Association and its members come in. Since 1947, the Spokane Home Builders Association has been committed to protecting and promoting the housing industry. Serving seven Eastern Washington counties, SHBA is over 750 members strong. We are professional home builders, architects, remodelers, suppliers, manufacturers, and sales and marketing professionals who believe every American deserves the opportunity of homeownership.
As trusted professionals within our community, our members continue to lead the way in all areas of home construction, driving innovation, and giving back to our community with one common goal in mind: to make our community stronger by providing affordable, quality residential housing.
With more and more regulatory burden piled on by the government, industry-wide challenges due to COVID-19, and increasing costs from energy code changes, the home building industry is at a crossroads. Housing has lead our economy out of almost every major recession and now is the time for government to help the industry, not hurt it. We need fewer regulations, not more. We need to ease the cost, not add numerous additional fees. If you are in the home building industry or care about building homeownership in our community, we need you! Join the Spokane Home Builders Association and get involved in advocacy. Help us contact legislators, commissioners, and council members. Let’s work together to build our community, one home at a time!
