What It's About:

This advanced session will explore the characteristics of new homes built today and highlight how they have changed since 2000, the features builders are most (and least) likely to include in the typical home they build in 2020 and the specific buyer preferences and perceptions about affordability and availability in the housing market. NAHB's most up-to-date home trends research will be illustrated using winners from the latest class of Best in American Living Award (BALA) winners, who represent the nation’s best in single-family design. Learn the ways you, too, can incorporate these trends into the homes you design and build.
