Webinar: Part 1 – The New Homebuilder Marketplace of COVID-19

“The New Homebuilder Marketplace of COVID-19” is a three-part webinar series designed exclusively for participants of the new home building market, specifically staff of new home builders and land developers.

In Part 1, held on Wednesday 13th of May, our expert panel shared some valuable insights and discussed how COVID-19 has changed the new homebuilder journey. A big thank you to Anthony Staltari (Metricon – MetInvest) and Mark Richardson (Simonds Homes) for joining our first webinar and sharing their insights with our audience.

Here are a few key takeaways from our first webinar to pass along to your team:

– Only 4% of homebuyers surveyed by iBuildNew stated that COVID-19 would prevent them from building a home

– Reputation, price and flexibility on deposits and contracts were the most important factors to homebuyers when choosing a builder

– The first homebuyer segment is showing strong growth in spite of COVID-19

– 3D tours and other virtual technologies will act as a complement, rather than a replacement to the traditional display home

Please join us at our next session on the 10th of June. We will be sending out invitations in the next couple of weeks, so keep an eye on your inbox and the iBuildNew Linkedin Page.
