What It's About

Floor plans, materials and color should respond to changing markets, dynamic buyer profiles, and how today's buyers live. Thankfully, small tweaks to tried-and-true designs can still appeal to new buyers while minimizing waste, maximizing housing attainability and staying on-trend. This advanced session will address common plan missteps and how to fix them, how to update your material and finish packages for today's buyers, and the benefits of going through this design exercise for your own business.

What You’ll Learn

  • Identify common faux pas in older floor plans, and understand how they don't meet the needs of today's buyers.
  • Explore simple updates to older plans that respond well to current trends and lifestyles.
  • Develop ideas on how to update your finish packages, depending on different generations of buyers.
  • Discuss the benefits of working through the floor plan/finish package retrofit process from the builders perspective.
