Who Are NAHB’s Builder Members?


NAHB’s annual membership census reveals important characteristics of its membership base, including both Builder and Associate members. The latest survey reflects the business activity of members throughout 2022.

The report on Builder members includes those whose primary business is single-family home building, multifamily building, residential or commercial remodeling, commercial building, land development, or manufacturing of modular/panelized/log homes. Highlights include:

  • Builder members comprise 35% of NAHB’s overall membership base.

  • The median number of employees for Builder member companies was five, which has remained consistent since 2015.
  • Builder members started a median of six housing units in 2022, which remained unchanged from 2021.
  • The median dollar volume of business among Builder members was $3.3 million in 2022, also unchanged from 2021. This is the second consecutive year where the median dollar volume of business is above $3 million.

NAHB will soon be releasing a similar report for Associate members.
