Beginning today, NAHB is hosting a month-long virtual celebration of its online member community NAHB Connect. Each week there will be a new challenge or action you can take to get involved with this useful and fun member resource.
The online community helps members connect, share ideas and learn from one another. If you haven't joined yet, consider what a few members recently shared about the forum's benefits:
"It’s almost like your own market research portal. If you have a question about something, you throw it into the platform, and see what responses you get. It's a great way to get insights. Especially if you're trying to get them on the fly or without spending any money. If you have a little bit of time to navigate the platform, you can gather some useful points and takeaways."
– David Bernadino, partner and chief client officer of Ammunition in Atlanta
"[Many] people can’t close homes right now because of the shortage with many types of appliances. Sometimes you can’t close because, for example, you need a range in order to have a certificate of occupancy. So if you don't have one because you go to your regular vendor and they’re out of the supply, you can go on the platform and post this issue. And you may learn that there are six other companies that are selling one, or a refurbished model. And there you go — NAHB Connect just helped you close a $500,000 home."
– S. Robert August, president of North Star Synergies in Denver
"What I love about NAHB Connect as opposed to other platforms is that it’s built and designed with the home builder in mind."
– Allan Edwards, president of Allan Edwards builders in Houston
