Broomfield, Colorado, March 8, 2016 - The Flatirons Building Council (FBC) of the Home Builders Association of Denver (HBA) hosted their 2016 housing market and design trends, as part of their annual kick-off event to nearly 100 builders and associate members last week. The data was presented by Mike Rinner, senior vice president of Meyers Research, LLC, along with Jennifer Williams, managing partner at KGA Studio Architects, PC. The news was well received by attendees who were gaining insight into the future growth and trends for the home building industry in the foreseeable future.
According to Rinner, there are three significant messages that were delivered during the presentation and “takeaways” for the audience:
In addition to the market overview, Williams shared information on topics related to home design for specific audiences, which included millennials, active adult/55+, whole house remodel, and the resurgence of custom spec homes in the market. “Being able to share with FBC members how market trends are influencing architectural design is a huge advantage for those members. I think the biggest comment that most were surprised to hear was that the custom spec market has returned, and that banks are lending again on these types of projects. This is very positive news for our industry.” states Williams.
Cindy Bell, 2016 Chair of the FBC had this to add, “We were excited at the response and enthusiasm we received from attendees about this program. It’s important to keep our membership well informed about the market conditions and trends, as it relates to product needs for specific buyer profiles that will impact the housing industry. We look forward to providing these types of quality programs in the future.”
