T

Tips for Ensuring the Successful Continuation of Your Business

T

here’s more to a succession plan than having a will or trust on paper, according to Terry Resnick and Lee Resnick of Resnick Associates. “Ninety percent of businesses in the United States are private, family owned businesses and two out of three won’t survive past the first generation,” said Lee Resnick at a succession planning seminar at the HBA last month. “It’s a business decision,” said Lee Resnick. “If a child is not active in the business, they shouldn’t necessarily get stock and dividends. There are other ways to provide for that child without them getting involved in the business.” There is a five-point checklist when creating a succession plan, according to Terry Resnick: • Define personal goals and identify your successor.

Oftentimes, a business owner’s second largest asset after the business itself is his or her life insurance, according to Terry Resnick. But there are different types and a common mistake business owners make is improperly arranged life insurance.

• Identify techniques to reduce or eliminate estate taxes. • Ensure liquidity positioning to avoid forced sale. • Include business interest transfer techniques to help achieve succession goals.

A big thank you to Lee Resnick and Terry Resnick for sharing their knowledge on this important topic with HBA members!

• Allow for an independent review of legal documents and life insurance plan to confirm it will meet your objectives.

NATURAL GAS BRINGS YOU SAVINGS FOR YOUR FUTURE. Homeowners save with natural gas. Natural gas furnaces heat homes more efficiently than electric heat pumps: the average household can save $400 to $500 a year with a natural gas furnace.

MCC Students Building Smart Home in Class

T

he KCHBA has partnered with Metropolitan Community College to give students hands-on construction experience. Between now and the Home & Lifestyle Show in March, MCC students will build and break down the smart home used in the 2019 Home Show to learn what it takes to build a home. The week before the Home Show begins, the students will re-build the smart home in Bartle Hall. This is valuable experience for students interested in the skilled trades and is an opportunity for the KCHBA to promote careers in the construction industry. Come to the Home & Lifestyle Show March 13-15 to meet the students and take a look at their work!

Last Chance Code Credit Classes Popular

A

few weeks ago, builders had one last chance to earn code credit before year-end. More than 30 builders earned code credit Dec. 12-13 as the KCHBA hosted 16 hours of classes at its office. On Dec. 12, builders learned about soils, footings and foundation, including basic standards and the IRC requirements for the construction with masonry and concrete.

On Dec. 13, attendees discussed communications, problem solving options and ethical standards as part of a class about the

contractor and building inspector partnership. In the afternoon, students learned about the International Residential Code from 2012-2018. Classes were taught by Russell Thornburg, a former program manager at Johnson County Contractor Licensing (JCCL) who now teaches classes across the country. All credit was approved through JCCL.

As an active member of the KCHBA, Scott enjoys the annual Clay Shoot event. He values this event as a great way to meet and network with other members of the KCHBA. Dacor has been a station sponsor the last two years and looks forward to sponsoring again in the future. Dacor also participated in the 2019 Greater Kansas City Home & Lifestyle Show at Bartle Hall. Dacor provided the appliances on the Cooking Stage. During the KCHBA building remodel, Dacor provided appliances in the kitchen.

Aside from his work with Dacor and within the HBA, Scott enjoys spending his free time with his wife and three children. He is also an avid soccer fan and enjoys attending games for Sporting Kansas City. When he’s not traveling, Scott plays indoor soccer on Thursdays.

Known as a hard worker himself, Scott believes in the members of the KCHBA and their vision for building not just houses but homes and communities.

If friends and family were to describe Scott, they would describe him as a family man who works very hard to provide. Scott would also be described by his love of sports, especially Kansas City teams and KU basketball.

Single-Family Permits Rebound in October

T

he number of single-family housing permits issued in October in the Kansas City metro increased from the prior month and showed more activity than October 2018, according to the monthly Residential Building Permit Statistics report compiled by the Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City. The organization reported a total of 492 single-family homes permitted in October 2019, resulting in a 20 percent increase compared to the 396 permitted in September 2019. October’s 492 single-family permits is also a slight increase from October 2018 when 485 permits were issued. Year to date, however, single-family permits are still down 23 percent compared to this time last year. “Similar to the Kansas City region, national permit numbers also increased in October,” said KCHBA Executive Vice President Will Ruder. “This is likely attributable to a number of factors including a prolonged low-interest rate environment and the consumer demand associated with it.” The top five permitting cities in October 2019 were Kansas City, Mo., (71); Olathe, Kan., (66); Blue Springs, Mo., (38); Overland Park, Kan., (31); and Lee’s Summit, Mo., (29).
