Single-Family Builders: Tell Us How Rising Costs Are Impacting Your Bottom Line

Filed in Economics, Membership by on April 21, 2021 4 Comments

profit benchmarksBuilders’ bottom lines across the country are being squeezed by rising material, labor and land costs. NAHB’s Economics team is in the process of measuring the impact of increased costs on builders’ profitability. And we need your help.

NAHB is seeking data from single-family builders to produce average profit benchmarks for the industry. Specifically, the Economics team is requesting data concerning your company’s 2020 Income Statement and Balance Sheet. This information will remain completely confidential; only NAHB’s small research team will see the data.

Industry averages will be published in the next edition of the Builders’ Cost of Doing Business Study. The book will retail to NAHB members for $79.95, but respondents will receive a free electronic copy. You can see a summary of past results here.

If you received the survey via email this week, thank you in advance for completing it. To receive a confidential link to the survey, please email Rose Quint, NAHB’s assistant vice president for survey research.
