You’re a builder or housing industry professional with a lot on your plate, so we’ll keep it short: we’re here to protect Virginia housing.

You’re a builder or housing industry professional with a lot on your plate, so we’ll keep it short: we’re here to protect Virginia housing.

We know what keeps people in our industry up at night, because it’s the same things that keep us awake, too – overregulation, labor shortages, lot availability, and the future of affordable homes for all. We exist to fix what’s broken and protect what’s not, and we’ve been at it for over 70 years.

Being a member through our 3-in-1- structure (local, state, and national representation) not only guarantees you a place on the field to help your business and homeowners flourish, it’s also–if we may say so ourselves–quite a deal. We provide a variety of return-on-your-dues benefits and programs that’ll help your business–and your wallet.


If you want:

  • A slice of the action instead of watching from the sidelines
  • To effect positive change in your local communities and beyond
  • A better night’s sleep when it comes to your industry knowing you’re doing all you can to make it great

Then consider membership with us today. Over 3,000 builders, associates, and affiliates have already done so. Scroll down to learn more.


We believe that builders and homeowners should have the resources they need and the rights they deserve to achieve their dreams, and we here at HBAV have been working hard to guarantee that since 1952.

Being a part of HBAV guarantees you a place on the field–rather than just watching from the sidelines–when it comes to improving the Virginia housing industry, saving builders & homeowners tens of thousands each year in improved laws and regulations. Better business and the greater good? That’s right — you can have both.

Without HBAV Government Affairs program, builders and developers would have no protection from overburden some legislation and regulation.  HBAV allows me the opportunity to operate a successful business in Virginia.
