Lot Proposals Needed for HBA Demonstration Home

The HBA of Greater Cincinnati plans to construct a Demonstration Home in the spring of 2019. The home will serve several purposes: 1) provide a vehicle for HBA suppliers to market and demonstrate new home products onsite to both builders and consumers; 2) educate future homebuyers about the building process; 3) educate youth about careers in construction through onsite skilled labor training; and 4) enhance public awareness of HBA member products. The Demonstration Home Project will be operated as a wholly-owned LLC of the HBA of Greater Cincinnati.

In order for us to begin this process, we need to determine a location within the Greater Cincinnati region for the pilot program. Specifically, we are requesting builders and developers with available lots to submit a proposal to have the HBA’s Demonstration Home built in their subdivision or on a lot that they own. The Demonstration Home will be priced between $350,000 and $500,000. The specific home plan will be determined once the lot and location are identified.

Here are some of the benefits that your company and community will derive from hosting the HBA Demonstration Home:

*Media exposure, including remote broadcasts on site during the construction process and when specific product demonstrations are scheduled.
*Public awareness of your community with thousands of potential home buyers, construction career students and product manufacturers.
*Complimentary marketing of your community or subdivision throughout the Demonstration Home build process.

If you have a location that you would like for us to consider, please reply to this email with the following:

1) Community name and address
2) Developer and/or lot owner (s)
3) Availability of buildable lot
4) Lot price to HBA
5) Deadline for purchase
6) Community amenities, if any
7) Community covenants and restrictions
8) Reasons why your lot location should be selected for the HBA’s pilot Demonstration Home Project

Submissions must be in writing no later than May 31, 2018. Please reply with your submission (s) to ddressman@cincybuilders.com or mail to Demonstration Home Project, HBA of Greater Cincinnati, 11260 Chester Rd., Suite 800, Cincinnati, OH  45246. Feel free to forward this notice to others who you think may have an interest in this project.
