The Home Builders Association of Virginia (HBAV) was founded in 1956 to promote and protect the Virginia housing industry. HBAV is a member of the 3-in-1 Home Builders Association Federation that includes the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and 14 local Home Builders Associations in Virginia. Members join to support HBAV’s mission and their livelihood. To join, companies apply for membership at the local association level and in doing so, become members of HBAV and NAHB.
HBAV serves the entire home building, development, and remodeling industry. One-third of HBAV’s 3,000 members are home builders, multifamily builders, land developers, and/or remodelers, while the remaining two-thirds are professional businesses and trade partners that work closely in related fields such as financing and building products.
HBAV works to accomplish its mission through advocacy, industry news and education, and membership events such as the Virginia Builders Summit & Expo and the Virginia Housing Excellence Awards.
