Build with confidence

You and your customers benefit from locked‑in rates #1 Conforming Jumbo Mortgage Lender

When it comes to building a home, your customers have a lot to think about. Why then should they be concerned about their home loan’s interest rate range? Your customers can gain peace of mind in a changing market with the Builder Best Extended Rate Lock program. They can lock down a range of interest rates with a required, non‑refundable extended rate lock fee.

If your customers feel confident knowing their interest rate range won’t change, you can feel confident building their home. How it works If interest rates go up, your customers are protected from 5 to 24 months, depending on their loan type. If interest rates go down, your customers may qualify for a one‑time float down option to a lower rate or different loan program. Talk to us about this possibility.

400 Homes on the Spring Parade Sponsored by Mike Bryant Heating & Cooling, the Spring Parade of Homes returns to Kansas City April 27-May 12 and will feature 400 homes across the metropolitan area. Homes will range in price from $210,000 to more than $2 million. In addition to singlefamily homes, there will be more than 50 homes in maintenanceprovided communities on the Parade.


Presented twice a year by the Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City (HBA), the Kansas City Parade of Homes is the second largest in the United States. Since 1947, millions of greater Kansas City residents and visitors have enjoyed viewing the latest in-home innovations, styles and decorating, and this year’s Spring Parade will be no different as it showcases the area’s premier new homes, home builders and communities. All homes will be open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and admission is free. Free Parade guides will be available for pickup at the HBA (I-435 & Holmes) and at all Parade homes during the dates of the event. More information will be available at closer to the beginning of the Parade. A mobile app will also be available to guide consumers through the Parade.

Missouri Legislative Day HBA members chartered a bus to Jefferson City on Wed., Feb. 6 for the HBA’s annual Legislative Day. The group met with various legislators throughout the day to introduce constituents and promote home builder legislation. The Fairness to Homeowners Act (HB 483), sponsored by Rep. Dan Stacy (R-Blue Springs), would improve the permit and inspection process for home builders and homeowners in Missouri. When discussing this bill with area Senators and Representatives, the group received many positive responses to the bill. Legislators understand that time consuming and costly inconsistencies in the building process delay residential development and that this legislation is an important step to future growth.


Missouri Legislative Day


NAHB Elects Leadership for 2019 NAHB members elected four senior officers to top leadership positions within the Federation during the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas. With more than 700 affiliated state and local home builders associations and more than 140,000 members across the country, NAHB represents the interests of the nation’s housing professionals through advocacy, education and research. Taking the helm as NAHB’s Chairman of the Board this year is Greg Ugalde, a Connecticut builder and developer with extensive experience in the home building industry. Ugalde is president and chief legal officer of Torrington-based T&M Building Co., Inc., one of the state’s largest home builders. Since its founding in 1962, T&M has built more than 4,000 new homes in over 45 Connecticut communities for trade-up and first-time buyers. He is also the founder and owner of GFU Investments, LLC, a builder/developer minority-owned business that focuses on urban development and workforce housing. “A top priority this year will be to address ongoing housing affordability concerns,” said Ugalde. “On average, government regulation accounts for nearly 25% of the price of building a single-family home and more than 30% of the cost of a typical multifamily development. “We will urge federal policymakers to take appropriate actions to ease regulatory burdens in order to help put families in homes, create jobs and move the economy forward. We will also call on Congress to advance comprehensive housing finance reform and to adopt sensible workforce development and immigration policy that will help our industry fill open jobs.” Also moving up on the association’s leadership ladder during NAHB’s Las Vegas board meeting was Dean Mon, a New Jersey-based builder and developer with more than 30 years of experience in the home building industry. He was elected as First Vice Chairman of the Board. Mon is president of the D.R. Mon Group, Inc., which specializes in the development and construction of green urban living projects throughout New Jersey. Since 1985, the company has created communities in Morris, Hunterdon, Union, Hudson and Monmouth Counties. John “Chuck” Fowke, a Tampa, Fla.-based custom home builder with 40 years of experience in the home building industry, was elected as Second Vice Chairman of the Board. Fowke is founder and president of Homes by John C. Fowke, Inc. His company has built hundreds of luxury homes throughout the Tampa Bay area.


Greg Ugalde, 2019 NAHB Chairman

Jerry Konter joined the NAHB leadership ladder with his election as Third Vice Chairman of the Board. A Savannah, Ga.-based home builder with 40 years of experience in the home building industry, Konter founded Konter Quality Homes in 1977. His company is one of the largest home building firms in Savannah and has established 17 communities and built more than 2,000 homes throughout the local metro area. 2018 NAHB Chairman Randy Noel, from LaPlace, La., remains on the leadership ladder as Immediate Past Chairman. Noel is president of Reve Inc., a custom home building firm that has developed more than 1,000 custom homes in the greater New Orleans area. Rounding out the association’s leadership is NAHB Chief Executive Officer Jerry Howard, from Washington, D.C. Howard heads up a professional staff of more than 240 working out of the National Housing Center in Washington. He has served as the association’s CEO/EVP since February of 2001. Previously, Howard was NAHB’s chief tax counsel. NAHBNow, 2/21/19

Looking for the HBA Staff? In preparation for Demo Day, the HBA staff has moved to the lower level of the building. It will take a while to adjust to the temporary space, but business is expected to continue as normal. The remodeling process will be documented in the BBN, but we suspect members may find a reason to drop by and see the progress in person. How can builders resist?




Help Bring the HBA Offices into the 21st Century A message from George Schluter The HBA is undertaking a complete interior remodel of the offices on the upper floor. The building was constructed and first occupied in early 1979 and has had only patch-work modifications over the last 40 years. I am excited about transforming the interior into a 21st century, first class office space. The HBA staff has moved temporarily to


Lees Summit Lumber 103 SE Oldham Pkwy Lees Summit, MO

Grandview Millwork 1227 E 119th St. Grandview, MO



the lower level and meetings during the remodel will be held in the lower level conference room. There will be some short-lived disruptions on the lower level as we redo the lower entry hall and stairway system. The approved budget for the construction, new furniture, moving of offices downstairs and back up, relocation of the computer and phone equipment and other low voltage wiring is just under $600,000.

First Source for Quality, Value, Service, and a Trusted Business Partner

It is my goal that we, the members, raise approximately half the cost from donations of cash, materials and labor. It is my hope that these remodeling donations will preserve the HBA’s funds for workforce development efforts. With enough dollars we can expand training programs in high schools, trade schools and other industry training/development programs. By making a contribution, your company will be recognized by feature stories in the BBN, This Week at the HBA, and your name will be placed on a permanent plaque in the newly remodeled board room. A significant contribution will earn naming rights for an office or even the new conference room or board room.

Builders FirstSource carries a wide selection of high quality building materials suited for both homeowner and professional builders’ needs. We take pride in personal service, and our talented and experienced team provides support to meet the needs of your specific project. Builders FirstSource provides quality materials that will perform well and look great. Make us your first source for lumber, trusses, construction services, millwork, doors, windows, cabinets, and more.

Fun Will Not Be Prohibited! Kansas City’s history has included characters who operated on both sides of the law. One of the most famous was Tom Pendergast who controlled Kansas City and Jackson County from 1925 to 1939. Wikipedia describes him: “his promotion of Kansas City as a wide-open town with every kind of vice imaginable, combined with his professed compassion for the poor and very real role as city builder, made him bigger than life, difficult to characterize.” Join fellow HBA members at the annual NAHB BUILD-PAC fundraiser on April 11 at Tom’s Town. The Tom’s Town website explains the name of their business: “Pendergast started as a saloon keeper and the founder of a wholesale liquor company. Under Tom, Kansas City ignored Prohibition and emerged as the ‘Paris of the Plains.’ Money, jazz, and spirits flowed in the open. When asked how he justified ignoring Prohibition, Pendergast quipped, ‘The people are thirsty.’ Today the people are still thirsty. Tom’s Town satisfies that thirst by producing premium craft spirits. You can taste our high standards and attention to detail in every sip of the gin, vodka, and bourbon we make.” BUILD-PAC contributions will be accepted during the evening, while we sample products of the distillery, tour the building and enjoy an evening of camaraderie among HBA friends. Through your contributions to NAHB’s BUILD-PAC, you can help the HBA’s efforts to support the home building industry and protect the future of housing through advocacy at all levels of government and by electing pro-housing candidates.
