Finding Reliable Trades to Bid Home Building Projects
May 28, 2019
Finding reliable trades for home building projects is a pain point and we know it. It seems like every day there’s another article on the labor shortage in construction, and it’s an issue builders expect will continue throughout the year.
While the solution requires collaboration on multiple fronts, we want builders to know that we’re their partner in more than just rebates. We work with builders in their markets to help facilitate reliable trades through regional market knowledge, established relationships and our cloud-based software program.
Here’s how it all comes together.
Regional market knowledge
Our regional market specialists, located across the United States, know the construction industry in their area. They know the manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and more. And they can help our builders get to know them too. For small to mid-sized single-family builders, these services can be particularly helpful.
And with their insider knowledge, our market specialists can help builders find good trades and, in turn, write more competitive bids.
Keep in mind that our market specialists also come to HomeSphere from years (sometimes even 20) spent working in the home construction industry and have a network they’ve established from before they even got here.
A direct connection to manufacturers
Multi-family builders in need of reliable trades can also be connected directly to our building product manufacturing brands (we work with more than 80) to receive bids on upcoming projects. Our manufacturer partners work with local trades to provide multi-family builders with the best pricing and newest products.
Multi-family builders who are interested in receiving these bids from manufacturers will have their information added to HomeSphere-IQ, our award-winning software platform for our manufacturers. Then, for upcoming projects, builders will receive bids from interested manufacturers that will include the right information a builder needs to price out projects and, once again, write winning bids.
The right introductions
But maybe some builders already have trades they like and work well with. That’s okay. Because we’re happy to be here for builders when they expand into different markets and could use the right introduction to new trades.
Our network of market specialists, manufacturers and industry partners is wide-ranging and always here for you.
