MBA Sales and Marketing Council Breakfast

Mitigating Home Construction Expenses

Addressing—and fixing—the issues and policies that affect our businesses

Home construction costs have gotten out of control. Home prices have rocketed to unprecedented heights and both we, as industry professionals, and potential home buyers are feeling the astronomical effects.

How do we fix this?

Positive change starts at the September 25 Sales & Marketing Council Breakfast, featuring a real look at the costs of doing business in the Puget Sound region, from labor shortages to costs of materials, and beyond. Join distinguished guest speakers and MBAKS staff as we search for proactive solutions to the issues we all face.
