The nation’s largest homebuilding companies appear to be confident the housing market recovery is going to continue and they’re staffing up to reap the rewards. After years of cutbacks and consolidations, the top builders have invested heavily in their top personnel. Two key indicators highlighted with the release of the 2013 National Builders Directory are dramatic increases in the number of contacts and the number of offices that these builders have added over the past year.
Total contacts of key decision makers has increased by more than 25% in The 2013 National Builders Directory compared to the 2012 Mid-Year edition. The 2013 Directory features more than 7,500 key contacts, compared to just over 6,100 in the last directory.
The total number of offices tracked by the National Builders Directory also has increased in recent years. The number of offices covered in the directory now tops 900, up from just over 600 offices that these builders had wittled down to during the housing crash.
In terms of personnel, builders have added to their staff and filled positions that have been left open for years or that were being handled by others department heads. This has been particularly noticeable in the areas of Land (Acquisitions & Development), Sales and Marketing. At this point in the home construction recovery, overall builder confidence is up and building permits and home starts have increased.
The 2013 National Builders Directory covers the top 250 homebuilders in the United States. The directory includes information on the corporate offices as well as the division and regional offices of these builders, with detailed contact information for the key decision makers in each office.
