“And for the first time, consumers will be able to visit our Web site and learn tips for picking their builder or remodeler. An interactive search tool and a section on available homes for sale will enable consumers to contact builders directly,” said Haney.

The HBAGFV is a comprehensive trade network comprised of professionals affiliated with the home building industry. Its mission is to promote the industry, and encourage the highest professional standards, and provide a forum for the exchange of information. Association members range from home builders, plumbers and Realtors to architects, masons, and printers.
