HBAI remains opposed.  HB2816 would have mandated that all new construction contain 5% recycled materials. HBAI is opposed.  HB2771 & SB1296 mandates all employees to provide sick days for their employees. HBAI is opposed.  HB2756 expands an Act allowing stormwater management commissions in certain counties served by the Northeastern Illinois Planning Committee to all counties in Illinois. HBAI opposed  HB2615 would have placed new language in the Mechanic’s Lien Act prohibiting contractors from forcing subcontractors to waive lien rights as a condition of doing business with contractor. HBAI supports this position, but there is current language in the Act that already does this. HBAI registered opposition to HB2615 because of another provision in the bill allowing oral agreements on lien waivers. The Illinois Land Title Association opposed the measure, as well, and the bill was held from consideration on the House Civil Law Committee.  HB366 would have increased penalties for violating the Employee Classification Act. The sponsor withheld the bill from consideration in the house Labor Committee at the request of HBAI and the Illinois Dept. of Labor.  SB09, the omnibus taxation bill that is part of the Grand Bargain in the Illinois Senate, still sits on 3rd Reading there. HBAI will be ramping up opposition to the Service Tax portion of the 500 page bill, as it places a sales tax on home repair services. 4 Alex Martindale, Regional Field Representative of NAHB gave everyone a better understanding of the value of being a NAHB member and the benefits that are available.

12 After almost reaching $55 per barrel (bbl), oil prices are again falling. What makes this decline particularly baffling is that in late 2016, after seeing prices languish for two years, the Organization of Oil Producing Countries (OPEC) announced that it, along with non-OPEC members such as Russia, would collectively reduce production by 1.8 million bbl/day, or 2% of global supply, starting January 1st. Many observers thought that removing that much supply would stop inventory growth and put upward pressure on prices. After the decision to curtail pumping was announced, oil prices, as expected, quickly jumped from about $43/bbl to close to $55/bbl. Recently, however, oil prices have again started falling. The question is why, and is this decline more likely to be temporary or permanent? High Storage Levels, Low Oil Prices increasing production. The third factor is that in the months leading up to January 1, 2017, when the above-mentioned production cuts were to commence, most OPEC nations sharply raised production levels and exports to maximize short-term revenues. And, after weeks of transatlantic travel, this oil is now finally reaching US shores. There are four main reasons why oil prices are again declining. Firstly, the decision to cut global production set off a flurry of buying by hedge funds, which pushed up prices. However, the rise in prices also encouraged American shale producers to ramp up drilling and production. To wit, the number of oil rigs in operation has more than doubled in the past 12 months. Since OPEC announced that production cuts were coming, US production has increased by almost 500,000 bbl/ day. Moreover, the number of wells that are drilled but uncompleted (DUCs) has risen from 1,250 to 1,750. As oil prices recover, DUCs, which can be quickly completed, are likely to flood the market with yet more supply. Second, several OPEC nations, including Iran, Libya, and Nigeria, were, for any number of reasons, not asked to cut production and have instead all increased production dramatically. Further complicating matters is that many of the nations that have been called upon to make cuts do not have a great history of compliance. In addition, Canada and other non-OPEC nations that are in no way involved with OPEC are also 13 The final factor is the shape of the curve of futures prices, which is closely related to inventory levels. Inventory levels continue to rise and are now at a record 540 million barrels. With inventories so large, near-term prices for oil are lower than long-term prices, a relatively infrequent situation known as a contango. When the contango is sufficiently large, such that storage costs are less than the long-term price of oil minus the short-term price, which is currently the case, investors and speculators buy oil and store it. In the process, the near-term price of oil is driven lower still. To break this cycle, OPEC will have to convince markets that inventories will soon decline and thereby raise near-term prices. The best way to do this would be to promise to extend the current production cuts that are set to expire on June 30th and perhaps promise additional production cuts. The only problem is that as prices rise in response those actions, American shale drillers will drill more wells and the cycle will continue.

Illinois on Track to Become First The state of Illinois’ financial condition is just one month shy of being designated “junk” by the nation’s credit agencies. The agencies have warned that if Illinois doesn’t resolve its budget issues by May 31 – the end of the state legislative session – it may be punished with more downgrades. It’s quite possible the agencies could downgrade Illinois bonds to junk status. Ted Dabrowski Vice President of Policy Illinois Policy Institute A junk rating of Illinois’ bonds isn’t just some wonky financial designation that only affects politicians. It has real consequences for the people of Illinois, from the most vulnerable to the wealthiest. Illinois’ political class is to blame for the state’s financial collapse. Lawmakers have been unwilling to enact the spending reforms to stop the bleed and the economic reforms to grow the state’s tax base. Falling to ‘junk’ Illinois, which already has the lowest credit rating of any state, will become the nation’s first junk-rated state if the rating agencies follow through on their downgrade warnings. The only remotely similar companion in this disgrace will be Puerto Rico, the junk-rated American territory that’s suffering a deep crisis of its own. A junk rating would be another blow to Illinois’ already low reputation, further discouraging investment, job creators and the in-migration of new residents. It would also hurt Illinois financially and push up borrowing costs, taking even more funds away from core government programs and social service providers. The state’s fall to junk credit status has been a long time coming. For decades, Illinois politicians have ignored important issues, passed fake reforms and papered over Illinois’ structural problems with tax hikes. Lawmakers haven’t passed a real balanced budget since 2001. A lack of real pension reform has driven Illinois’ pension debt to $130 billion, up nearly $100 billion from a decade ago. And inadequate property tax reform and tax hikes have shrunk Illinois’ tax base, both in people and dollars. As a result, Illinois has been downgraded 19 times by the three major rating agencies since 2009 alone, according to the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability. Illinois’ drop to junk status would be its 20th downgrade, assuming a double-notch downgrade by just one agency. 16 The state’s decline is part of a larger story of financial collapse in Illinois. The city of Chicago is already junk-rated. Chicago Public Schools is even deeper in junk territory. And Illinois’ public universities are now facing additional credit downgrades as well. Northeastern Illinois University was recently downgraded further into junk status by the ratings agencies as part of a major review of all universities by Standard & Poor’s. Without major reforms, such as moving state workers to 401(k)-style plans and comprehensive property tax reform, things will only get worse for both Illinoisans and the economy. Illinois needs a real plan Many politicians and pundits and those in the media think that Illinois needs a deal, any deal, to end the current crisis. But Illinois’ past is littered with bad deals enacted in the midst of a crisis. They’re what got Illinois into its current crisis. Former Gov. Jim Edgar’s 1996 pension ramp was a disaster that Illinoisans continue to pay for today. Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s $10 billion pension bond deliberately avoided addressing pension reform and simply left Illinoisans with more debt. And former Gov. Pat Quinn’s copycat deals borrowed another $7 billion. Then Quinn’s temporary income tax hike allowed politicians to raise spending, leaving Illinois on a budgetary cliff when that tax hike expired. Every one of those deals had something in common – they all avoided fixing Illinois’ structural spending problems. The Senate’s proposed “grand bargain” does the same. It will only perpetuate Illinois’ dysfunction, something that Illinoisans simply cannot afford. A real plan – and a real balanced budget – must solve those structural problems. If not, Illinois won’t be able to avoid an eventual junk bond rating or get off the path to bankruptcy. 17

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 established that employers must keep accurate records of employee injuries and illnesses for five years and that OSHA has six months to cite an employer for a violation. Subsequent court rulings upheld the six-month statute of limitations. Nonetheless, in a clear attempt to circumvent congressional authority and in spite of the court rulings, OSHA proceeded with its rulemaking, which went into effect on Jan. 18. When President Trump signs the legislation into law, OSHA will still be able to issue a citation for recordkeeping paperwork violations up to six months after they occurred and employers will still have the exact same obligation to record injuries as they always had. The difference: OSHA will no longer be able to play “gotcha” by issuing a citation five years after the occurrence, which would do nothing to minimize workplace hazards but would subject small businesses to needless fines and excessive paperwork requirements. The legislation passed by a vote of 50-48. For more information, contact Alex Strong at 800-368-5242 x8279. 11

Mike Burton moved to Carlyle from Alton in 1962 and has enjoyed the small-town atmosphere ever since. Mike grew up with a very loving and compassionate mother who was very active in the foster care program and adopted fourteen children so his home was always a busy place. Burton attended Maryville University graduating with a BS in Accounting and went on to work for the Carlyle Sheriff’s Department for over 25 years, first as a Deputy Sheriff and then Captain. Along with his public service duties Burton has substitute taught at many of the local schools including Kaskaskia College. Residents of Carlyle will often see Mike getting his exercise by walking the City streets almost every day and answering constituent’s questions. His daily walks cannot happen however, until his longtime Pinochle game has finished. Mike is a fierce pinochle player and his trivia team is known throughout the area for their first-place finishes. Burton is also a longtime Lions Club member and this year will serve as its President.

The explanation given by both senators was that reducing the number of immigrants would shrink the pool of labor, thus raising wages, and hopefully encouraging some of the many Americans who have quit the labor force to return. While sounding plausible, the data does not support this position. Moreover, reduced immigration will bring the US perilously close to a situation it has never seen: near-zero population growth. Per an exhaustive study carried out by the US National Academy of Sciences, immigration does not drive down wages. Rather, immigration was found to have a “very small” and short-term effect on native-born workers lacking a high school degree. Another study that looked at non-European immigration into Denmark between 1991 and 2008 found that immigrants didn’t reduce wages, and instead freed natives to do more agreeable work. And when only high-tech immigration is analyzed, at worst, studies find that wages of American computer workers and scientists are depressed by up to 10%, but the overall economy is better off by boosting innovation and reducing prices for consumers. While somewhat counterintuitive, these studies demonstrate that rather than taking jobs performed by natives, immigrants create new employment opportunities, and along the way, can push the natives into higher paying jobs. The mistaken belief that immigrants reduce employment opportunities for Americans is based on a false notion that there is a fixed amount of work to be done, and that job gains made by immigrants come at the expense of natives who are displaced. In addition, immigrants often bring skills that are in great demand. For example, at present, there is a shortage of occupational and physical therapists, 13 nurses, construction workers, engineers, metal workers, etc. However, wages in these professions do not appear to be rising substantially faster than those in occupations where labor shortages are less severe. This is because more construction and metal workers simply cannot be found, regardless of the wage offered. Thus, employers have been forced to cut back on production because of a dearth of skilled labor. This situation helps no one. Separately, ponder this: on average, the working-age population grew by 1.4% per year between the years 1965 and 2015, and economic growth averaged 3%. Assuming current fertility and immigration rates, the working-age population will grow just 0.3%/year between now and 2037. With only 500,000 immigrants per year, the working-age population will grow by just 0.1%/year. And with no immigration, the working-age population shrinks by 0.1%/year. Under these conditions, we will be lucky to see annual GDP growth of 1.5%/year, not to mention declining house prices. House prices would be expected to fall in cities in counties with declining populations, as the number of buyers would progressively decline. While many Americans fear that immigrants -- in particular illegal immigrants -- threaten their employment opportunities and wages, in almost all situations that is not the case. Frequently, immigrants perform demanding physical work that Americans prefer not to do, and even when that is not so, immigrants often have skills that are in short supply. Lastly, in an economy that is rapidly aging and slowly growing, immigration is the key to population growth. That growth will allow us to avoid a host of painful problems, including declining property values and rising tax burdens that we would be wise to avoid.

While the implied warranty of habitability has been a concern to homebuilders, since it was first recognized by the courts, subcontractors need to be concerned with the effect of the warranty, as well. In a recent case brought by the Sienna Court Condominium Association in Evanston, Illinois, the 1st District Appellate Court addressed the holdings that allow a property owner to bring a claim to correct a latent construction defect directly against one or more subcontractors. As early as 1983, the Court had ruled that a homeowner could proceed against a subcontractor, directly, where the general contractor was insolvent, so the homeowner has no other recourse against the general contractor; and the defect was caused by the subcontractor(s). The issue in Sienna was whether recourse had been available, so that claims could not be made against the subcontractors, where the general contractor had filed for bankruptcy; but the general contractor’s warranty fund and/or insurance had provided some funds to the homeowner. The Court reiterated what it believed to be a bright-line rule that the solvency of the general contractor controls whether a claim may be brought directly against a subcontractor or not. Insolvency, the Court found, means that the general contractor’s liabilities exceed the value of its assets; and the general contractor has stopped paying its debts in the ordinary course of business. Once it has been determined that the general contractor is insolvent, under this definition, the court found it irrelevant whether the homeowner had received some funds from the GC’s warranty fund or might receive some funds from the GC’s insurance; and allowed the claims to be brought against the involved subcontractors. The ruling of the court is better news for design professionals and material suppliers. The court held that the implied warranty is a claim for construction defects; and may not be imposed against design professionals or material suppliers who do not engage in actual construction activities. The bottom line, from this ruling, is that both general contractors and subcontractors need to be concerned about the implied warranty of habitability. As discussed in previous blogs, there is a means to eliminate claims under the implied warranty of habitability. But the construction contract needs to address the warranty. Contractors and subcontractors should both consult their attorney, to discuss how to lessen the risk of being held liable under an implied warranty claim.

STATE OF ILLINOIS 2017 LEGISLATIVE PROPOSALS & POSITIONS 1. Extend the Vacant Lot Act to Successive Property Owners – HBAI passed this law in 2011 but it had a three-year sunset provision. Now, all business incentives are on hold in the Illinois House until there is an overall tax increase. 2. Oppose Service Tax on Construction – Expansion of State Sales Tax to Services could bring $2.5 billion in new dollars to Illinois. While new construction will probably be exempt, home remodeling could be hit with this tax. SEE SB09 details on page 16 3. Support Consolidation of Local Government Units – Illinois has more units of government than any other state. 4. Impact Fee & Tap on Fee Reform – HBAI wants “specifically and uniquely attributable” standard on all impact fees and all fees to be places in a segregated fund. There is already a bill in place for this on school impact fees from 2003 and Senators Clayborne and McCarter have proposed SB60 to address township tap on fees that we support. 5. Exempt New Homes from Transfer Taxes – New homes are assessed impact fees AND transfer taxes by some municipalities. HBAI wants legislation prohibiting transfer taxes on homes paying impact fees. Other Legislative Bills that are being proposed in this current session:  HB0732 – Roofers bill outlines when roofing contract is necessary for re-roof/repairs. NEUTRAL  HB0366 – Employee classification raises penalties by $500. OPPOSED  SB1355/1807 – Construction demolition debris. A municipality cannot create a monopoly for waste removal/ hauling providers. MONITOR  SB1450/HB2672 – both shell bills for Residential Building Code Acts. MONITOR  HB2816 – 5% of materials in new construction must be re-used materials. OPPOSED  HB0813 - Employment Layoff Notice, Changes current language from company with 75 employees (was 65) layoff notice must be given in 90 days (was 60). OPPOSED  SB0981 - Prohibits Wage Inquiry. Employers would not be allowed to discuss what a potential employee has been paid or what their pay expectations are. OPPOSED  SB1296—Requires Paid Sick Days. This is a repeat bill from last legislative session. OPPOSED These are just the “hot topics” to share. Please consider attending the HBA event on April 6th (page 9) to hear about all the updates on where these bills are at and how you can help to get involved. 8 HBA Policy: Registration for this HBA Event is considered confirmation of your participation and will be invoiced if cancellation is not made within 3 days of the event. 9

With Interest Rates So Low Should the Deficit be Bigger? The US government can currently borrow at exceptionally low interest rates. After considering inflation, the rates are sometimes zero or even negative, meaning that the government is effectively getting paid to borrow. Under these circumstances and with GDP growth quite anemic, isn’t the case for increased borrowing overwhelming? After all, the benefit of public investment in roads and bridges must surely be greater than zero, right? Maybe not! If the economy were operating substantially below its potential -- if the unemployment rate were high -the case for borrowing more and running larger budget deficits would be strong. The added stimulus from the increase in government spending would boost household incomes, which would increase aggregate demand and bring the economy closer to its full potential. That is why governments tend to run large deficits during recessions and why there are many counter cyclical programs like food stamps that ramp up as the economy weakens. However, at present, the US economy is operating close to full capacity. The unemployment rate is almost the best in ten years, wages are rising faster than they have in years, and inflation, while still low, is clearly picking up. That said, GDP growth remains anemic at just 2%. Wouldn’t more stimulus boost GDP? Probably not. At this point in the cycle, more stimulus would not create much more output. Rather, it would primarily create wage inflation, as too many firms looking to grow would chase too few workers, and, in the process, drive up wage growth and inflation, since firms would attempt to pass their higher costs of production to buyers. To avoid this destructive inflationary spiral, the Fed would raise interest rates. The rise in rates would depress private investment, which would allow for non-inflationary increased public investment. However, it should now be obvious that the cost of the increased public investment is the reduction in 10 private sector investment. Thus, the opportunity cost of the public investment is not the very low interest rate paid on government bonds; it is, rather, the loss of productivity of the private investment that would never be built, such as a new factory or warehouse. And the productivity of that private investment is certainly higher than the interest rate on government bonds! The only case, at present, for deliberately overheating the US economy is if you believe more stimulus can undo some of the long run damage sustained by the economy during the Great Recession. The idea is that by artificially and temporarily pushing the unemployment rate way down, some discouraged workers might be enticed back into the labor force. Similarly, as firms find it harder to hire enough new workers, firms might offer existing workers more hours or convert part-time positions into permanent ones. Firms might even boost labor productivity by investing in workforce training or new equipment. While weak GDP growth is a problem, simply running large deficits to stimulate the economy because interest rates are low is unwise given how low the unemployment rate already is. That said, there is a strong argument to be made for a shortterm increase in the deficit designed to bring previously discouraged workers who left during the Great Recession and have yet to return. Lastly, rather than a simple tax cut, if deficit spending is carefully targeted to public investment that boosts the productive capacity of the economy, it would bring long lasting benefits to the economy that we would enjoy for decades -- not just today.

Home Builders Oppose SB09 New & Higher Taxes on Home Repair & Maintenance The Home Builders Association of Illinois opposes the passage of SB09, the omnibus taxation bill within the Grand Bargain, and respectfully requests a NO Vote on its consideration. SB09 will increase taxes & fees on home repair shops five times with one vote, probably a record even for Illinois [Personal & Corporate Income Tax, Business Opportunity Tax, a first-time Excise Tax, and a first-time $75 registration fee to the Illinois Dept. of Revenue). SB09 is unfair, complicated and narrow-based. Article 15 of SB09 imposes a new EXCISE TAX on the repair and maintenance of homes located here in Illinois. The 5% sales tax would cause a decline in work for repair & maintenance by about $30 million per year. This impact includes:  $27 million less income for Illinois workers,  327 fewer jobs in Illinois,  $5 million less in revenue for the state government and local governments within the state, partially offsetting the increase in revenue collected under the new tax.* Home Repair Businesses will not only get hard hit by the new taxes, they will also be hit with very confusing language on how to pay for these taxes. Sole Proprietorships and Partnerships will struggle with the payment options which will hinder customer service while conforming to state regulations. The Service Tax on Home Ownership is a narrow based tax intended to usher in a new form of taxation for Illinois, sales taxation on the service industry. But the five sectors of the economy hit by this proposal may, or may not be, joined later by other service industries later. This would mean a hardship for a few economic sectors and a relatively small revenue stream for the state. In the meantime, the home repair business will also get socked with other tax increases covered by SB09; Personal & Corporate Income Tax Increases; the Business Opportunity Tax: and, the fees paid annually to the Dept. of Revenue to administer collection of the EXCISE TAX. 16 2017 Lobby Day Tuesday, May 9th ~ 10am to 7pm 10:00 am Sangamo Club, 227 E Adams, Springfield, IL Guest Speaker, Lunch, Issues Updates 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm Legislative Visits in a dedicated room for our group to discuss industry issues directly with our state legislators: Senators Clayborne, Haine, Manar, McCann, McCarter & Schimpf and Representatives Beiser, Bourne, Bryant, Cavaletto, Costello Jr., Davidsmeyer, Hoffman, Meier & Stuart. 5:30pm to 7:00 pm Legislative Reception - Sangamo Club, Springfield, IL Where the Senators and Representatives from our territory will stop by to follow up with previous conversations in a relaxed setting with beverages REGISTER TODAY for Lobby Day - HBA Local #1468 Name: _________________________________________________________________________________ Company name: _________________________________________________________________________ Email address/Phone# _____________________________________________________________________ Simply email to eyowell@hbai.org with the following information and copy tbutler@hbaswil.org for car pool arrangements *One week before Lobby Day, you will be sent an information packet by email to prepare you for the day’s events.

H B OME UILDERS A SSOCIATION NEWSBRIEF The Official Newsletter of the Home Builders Association of Greater Southwest IL The Voice of the Homebuilding and Remodeling Industries in Southwest Illinois. Representing Bond, Calhoun, Clinton, Greene, Jersey, Madison, Monroe, Randolph and St. Clair Counties January 2017 issue www.hbaswi l .org HBA Presidential Year in Review 2016 HBA President Jeff Schmidt RLP Development Upon reflection, 2016 seems to have been a year that was filled with many challenges and many accomplishments for our organization. During my installation speech last January I challenged every member to recruit one new member this year. That did not occur, however, we did realize an increase in membership and an average of 90% retention, which reverses a declining number over the past several years. Thank you to the new members that helped us achieve this success and the members that recruited them. What I would consider the most unfortunate loss to our region, was the decision to build the next NGA site in north St. Louis. It was a huge disappointment not only for members of our association, but for the entire Metro East. However, the Municipal Assistance Committee was instrumental in working with Edwardsville, Glen Carbon and Madison County on revising the I-55 Development Code which was adopted in July of this year. They also have been involved with other municipalities providing input and guidance as their committees and boards navigate the complexities of adopting, in whole or part, building codes and ordinances. Most recently, Troy , IL is revising their Subdivision Ordinance and our committee is there providing guidance and expertise to assist them. Our Professional Women in Building Council continues to impress. Hosting private lunches with Troy Mayor Allen Adomite and O’ Fallon Mayor Gary Graham. They also held their inaugural “Power Women Luncheon” featuring two very successful women, from the state of Illinois, Colonel Laura L. Lenderman, SAFB and Kristina Rasmussen, President and COO of the Illinois Policy Institute. These along with other activities have raised thousands of dollars allowing them to provide scholarships for local female students in the home building and remodeling industries. The New Homes on Parade Open House Event with the implementation of “Parade Craze”, an app downloaded on a smart phone; not only was successful and reached even more potential home buyers, especially millennials. Our local HBA published the “Building Industry Laws You Should Know” book and provided this to all members. This will continue to be a benefit to members for years to come. On a national level in 2016, Home Builder and Developer, Ed Brady, from Bloomington, IL served as Chairman of the National Association of Home Builders and is being considered for the next commissioner of the Federal Housing Administration. The Presidential election gives us President Donald Trump, with his significant background in the building industry. While addressing NAHB attendees at the mid-year meeting in August zeroed in on issues of concern to the industry, particularly regulations that he said today represent 25% of the cost of building a home. He indicated that he would declare a temporary moratorium on new agency regulations and lower the cost for homebuilders. On the state level our own Mark Vogt, Vogt Builders has moved up the HBAI leadership to become its Treasurer. Tracy Butler our Executive Officer received the “Presidents Award” from outgoing President Dean Graven, for her work on the afore mentioned book. Earlier this year Bob Dee Jr., Homes by Deesign, represented us in a roundtable discussion consisting of MetroEast business owners with Governor Rauner. Finally, we will once again be honored with providing assistance to our members of the armed forces during the return of the Air Show & Open House as Scott Air Force Base celebrates 100 years of continuous operation. As much as we have accomplished this year, many are left out of this review, I feel we have set into motion many other exciting improvements to our organization; that will come to fruition in the coming months and years. It has been an honor and a privilege to have been given this opportunity to serve you and I look forward to the many changes that new leadership will bring. God Bless all of you, your families and businesses. I feel most would be disappointed if I did not end this with a hearty, “GO BIG RED”!

NAHB Communications Federal Judge Blocks Overtime Rule  In a major victory for NAHB, a federal judge in Texas on Nov. 22 granted a preliminary injunction to delay implementation of the Department of Labor’s new overtime rule.  The rule, which was scheduled to take effect Dec. 1, would double the minimum salary limit from $23,660 to $47,476.  NAHB joined other business groups in filing a legal challenge to the overtime rule on Sept. 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. In addition, 21 states have also filed suit challenging the rule and the two lawsuits have been consolidated.  While the injunction is only temporary, the ruling by Judge Amos Mazzant sent a strong signal that he could likely side with NAHB and our business coalition.  Had the rule gone into effect on Dec. 1, it would have had significant ramifications for many employers, including home building firms and not-for-profits, such as HBAs.  According to NAHB analysis, nearly 100,000 construction supervisors would be eligible for overtime under the new rules.  As NAHB keeps working toward permanent relief, we will continue to provide our members with the tools they need to comply with the new overtime requirements in the event that the court rules against NAHB, our business coalition and the 21 state attorneys general. For more information, contact Suzanne Beall at 800-368-5242 x8407. NAHB’s Legal Victory Blocks “Persuader” Rule  NAHB scored an important legal victory on Nov. 16 when the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas granted the association and other groups a permanent stay on the Department of Labor’s final “persuader” rule.  The rule would unfairly discourage employers from receiving confidential legal advice concerning union organizing because it required employers to disclose the names of lawyers and consultants to the Department of Labor (DOL).  In short, unions were seeking to prevent employers from talking to their lawyers in response to union organizing. The court ruling essentially puts an end to the union effort.  With the permanent judgment now in place, the persuader rule will not go into effect unless DOL appeals and a higher court overrules the lower court decision. For more information, please contact Amy Chai at 800-368-5242 x8232 or Suzanne Beall at x8407. 10 No Quick Fixes for Builders as Trump Administration Takes Shape  NAHB is hard at work to assure that our members’ priorities are addressed when the new Trump administration takes over on Jan. 20.  However, even when those priorities are in alignment with Trump’s campaign platform, none of these changes can take place overnight.  Some, tied up in litigation or involving multiple agencies and branches of government, may take years.  Regardless, NAHB government affairs, regulatory and legal staff is already preparing.  Leaders have had extensive discussions and sent background information to the Trump team about a number of significant issues, including President Obama’s executive order that drastically changes development rules in and around floodplains.  Though NAHB cannot be certain as to what will change, or how quickly changes will occur, the association sees the new administration and Republican-controlled Congress as a tremendous opportunity.  NAHB’s advocacy team is well-prepared to respond to the new political environment.  Read NAHB’s analysis for a closer look at the 2016 election results. Housing Market Snapshot Housing Starts New: 563,000↓ (October 2016) Total: 1.32 million↑ Single: 869,000↑ Multi: 454,000↑ Home Sales* (October 2016) Existing: 5.60 million↑ Median Home Prices (September 2016) New: $304,500↑ Existing SF: $233,700↑ *Seasonally Adjusted Annual Rate; Arrows indicate direction from previous month for starts and sales and year for prices. The index, which measures builder confidence in the market for newly built single-family homes, held steady at 63 in November, the same level as the October reading of 63. Any number over 50 indicates that more builders view sales conditions as good than poor. NAHB Chief Economist Robert Dietz’s analysis: “A solid job market, a growing economy and attractive mortgage rates are supporting demand in the single-family housing sector and will keep the housing recovery on a gradual, upward trajectory as we head into next year. However, builders in many markets continue to face supply-side constraints, particularly as they relate to the high-cost and lack of availability of lots and labor.” 11 NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index –

2018 International Residential Codes & Energy CONSERVATION Code Updates Fire sprinkler mandates will stay in the International Residential Code, but builders and developers will see other construction cost savings after more than 162,000 votes were cast for 577 proposals on the ballot for the International Code Council’s 2016 Online Governmental Consensus Vote, which ended Nov. 27. After weeks of phone calls and personal visits, NAHB members were successful in pushing the results to reflect the point of view of the code official, rather than that of the product manufacturer. “This shows the value of our association as the consistent voice for safe, cost-effective construction – and being the voice for home buyers,” said NAHB Construction, Codes and Standards Chairman Phil Hoffman. The preliminary results await a January audit and confirmation by the ICC Board of Directors. Here are the highlights International Residential Code (IRC) RB17-16 revises the seismic design category map, moving some areas of the country into in a higher category. NAHB opposed this proposal, but it was approved. Estimated Increase: $2,483-$6,196 per house. RB19-16 would have revised the ground snow load map. Affected regions would have required thicker roof sheathing and changes to rafters and headers. NAHB opposed this proposal, and it was defeated. Estimated Savings: $1,014-$1,652 per house. RB26-16 & RB27-16 would have significantly increased the design live load for decks and balconies of homes to support 60psf instead of the current 40psf requirement. NAHB opposed these proposals, and they were defeated. Estimated Savings: $75-$154 per house. RB52-16 would have required duplexes that are divided by a legal lot line to be separated by two independent, one-hour fire-resistance-rated walls, instead of a single, two-hour fire-resistance-rated wall. NAHB opposed this proposal, and it was defeated. Estimated Savings: $1,097 – $3,803 per house. RB129-16 would have removed the requirement to install a fire sprinkler system from Section R313 of the IRC and moved it into a new optional appendix. NAHB supported this proposal, but it was disapproved. Estimated Increase: $6,026 per house (If adopted locally). RB278-16 would have required that either an airspace or a manufactured rainscreen product be installed behind the siding on homes in wet climate zones. NAHB opposed this proposal, and it was defeated. Estimated Savings: $286-$3,680 per house. 14 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) RE35-16 would have increased the requirements for the energy efficiency of windows. NAHB opposed the proposal, and it was defeated. Estimated Savings: $584$1,563 per house. RE58-16 would have removed the mandatory 3 and 5 ACH50 building tightness requirements and made it possible to trade-off building tightness in the performance path without reducing the stringency of the code. Unfortunately, this proposal was defeated. RE79-16 would have modified the IECC air barrier table by adding a new requirement to fully encapsulate rim joist insulation. NAHB opposed this proposal, and it was defeated. Estimated Savings: $351-$555 per house RE134-16 would have allowed mechanical equipment trade-offs. If more efficient equipment is specified, the envelope insulation levels can be reduced by up to 15%. If this code change had been approved, the potential savings would have been $217-$1,425 per house. RE173-16 brings the ERI values more in line with the IECC prescriptive path. The values will still be about 2025% more stringent than the prescriptive path. The current values in the 2015 IECC are about 30-35% more stringent than the prescriptive path. NAHB supported this code change, and it was approved. CE105-16 would have required air leakage testing by fan pressurization for buildings over a certain size and in specific climate zones. NAHB opposed this proposal, and it was defeated. Estimated Savings: $2,000-$10,000 per multifamily building. 15

Federal Judge Blocks Overtime Rule By NAHB Now on November 23, 2016 In a victory for NAHB, a federal judge in Texas on Nov. 22 granted a preliminary injunction to delay implementation of the Department of Labor’s new overtime rule. The rule, which was scheduled to take effect Dec. 1, would double the minimum salary limit from $23,660 to $47,476. NAHB joined other business groups in filing a legal challenge to the overtime rule on Sept. 20. The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. In addition, 21 states have also filed suit challenging the rule and the two lawsuits have been consolidated. The parties have filed motions for a summary judgment. While the injunction is only temporary, the ruling by Judge Amos Mazzant sent a strong signal that he could likely side with NAHB and our business coalition. “The State Plaintiffs have shown a likelihood of success on the merits because the Final Rule exceeds the Department’s authority,” Mazzant wrote in his opinion. Working with House and Senate lawmakers and members of our business coalition, the Partnership to Protect Workplace Opportunity, NAHB has been leading the effort to mitigate the effects of the overtime rule. In addition to the lawsuit, the association is asking Congress to phase-in the new salary requirements, as well as provide permanent relief from the rule’s provision to automatically update the salary threshold every three years. 8 As NAHB keeps working toward permanent relief, the association will continue to provide members with the tools they need to comply with the new overtime requirements in the event that the court rules against NAHB, our business coalition and the 21 state attorneys general.

A Recession is Unlikely The current US economic expansion is one of the longest on record, and, come March, will become the third longest in US history, dating back to the start of record keeping in 1854. As such, there is increasing concern that we are due for a recession. That concern has only heightened, given that the last downturn was particularly nasty. This fear is weighing not only on household spending, but, more importantly, on corporate spending on plant and equipment, holding back GDP growth and labor productivity. Fortunately, this concern is misplaced. Simply put, age is not what kills expansions. Rather, it is an overheating economy that generally results in a recession. When wages start rising swiftly, investment activity starts taking off, debt levels grow rapidly, asset prices become untethered to reality, commodity prices remain high, and inflation rises rapidly, the Federal Reserve invariably intervenes. In the attempt to cool things down, all too often the Fed raises rates too quickly or too much and accidently drives us into a recession. However, there is currently little evidence of any pre-recessionary economic exuberance. As a matter of fact, most of the economy is still behaving as if we were recovering from the recession rather than enjoying the boom times that come at or near the peak of an economic expansion. Growth, be it domestic or international, is subdued. Commodity prices are, with few exceptions, at or near cyclical lows, and bank lending is probably best described as solid. Moreover, inflation, while slowly rising, remains below the official Fed target rate of 2%. Lastly, while the unemployment rate is just 5%, wage gains are much weaker than they have been before previous economic downturns. This suggests that there is still slack in the labor market and that the Fed will not have to start raising rates quickly anytime soon. Spending by households and businesses is also not signaling a recession. Purchases of durable goods such as cars and dishwashers averaged 7.5% of GDP in Q2 2016, well below the 8.5% average that has persisted in years preceding recessions. Private investment spending on new home construction, business related software and equipment and so on – is equally low. Moreover, the household debtservice ratio, or how much after tax income Americans are devoting to debt payments, is near its lowest level ever and personal savings rates are near their highest level in twenty years. Lastly, corporate profits are once again on the rise, reducing slightly elevated stock market valuations. The above notwithstanding, a recession is always a possibility due to economic shocks emanating from abroad that can dramatically raise energy prices, or a war or an election that can hurt household spending and business confidence. However, other than that, it would probably take much stronger economic growth for a prolonged period before the Fed felt compelled to raise interest rates quickly enough to meaningfully slow down the economy and, in the process, possibly bring on a recession. In short, the current economic expansion that started in July 2009 looks increasingly likely to become the longest economic expansion ever. Increasing this potential is that even though wages and inflation are finally rising, the Fed has communicated its interest in seeing wages and inflation rise further as they have been too low for too long. So, enjoy the current expansion; it may well last a lot longer! Elliot Eisenberg, Ph.D. is President of GraphsandLaughs, LLC He can be reached at Elliot@graphsandlaughs.net. His daily 70 word economics and policy blog can be seen at www.econ70.com. 14 Private Lunch with O’Fallon Mayor Gary Graham The City of O’Fallon has a lot to brag about with many awards recognizing their community. They have healthy finances with property taxes making up only 1% of the City’s budget, AA+ bond rating, double the recommended amount of cash reserves, over $195,000,000 in total assets and 16 years of balanced budgets under the years of leadership that Mayor Graham has provided. O’Fallon is a very Builder friendly community with over 125 new home permits this year thru October of 2016 they lead the charts in St. Clair County as well as being #5 in the STL MSA in new homes starts on average from 2010 to 2014. O’Fallon currently has over 4,000 platted lots available. The Mayor shared his #1 goal has been to protect home values. The addition of the “Medical Mile” in 2017 was highlighted bringing in over 1,300 employees and potential $1.3 million in additional retail sales from 15,400 sq. ft of new space that will become available. Professional Women in Building Council members gather for a picture with Mayor Graham. Bottom row (left to right) Andrea West with Fulford Homes, Cherity Freeze with Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, Brittney Ragsdale with CA Jones Inc., Michelle Null with Benchmark Title, Jan Johnson with Garrett E. & Herschel E.

O’Fallon Park is the 6th biggest venue in the STL region for visitors. The Family Sports Park will become a national tournament destination that has so much to offer and room for growth with more baseball fields and all weather turf soccer fields. Plans to improve downtown will tie in with the visitors that have been coming in for sporting events with transformations of First Street investments that will be funded from hotel tax revenue from out of town visitors all to be completed by fall of 2017. O’Fallon currently has over 1,000 hotel rooms and will be adding more as things progress. Mayor Graham was an absolutely delight as he shared the news and took questions from the audience. The Mayor will not be running for another term in April 2017 leaving a long list of respected leadership accolades. 15

Power Women Luncheon Colonel Lenderman was born the daughter of a Military Pilot. Women pilots were admitted into the Air Force in 1976 and this inspired her dreams as a young child. Colonel Lenderman leads more than 3,100 personnel, oversees assets totaling more than $4 billion, and controls an annual budget exceeding $130 million. Her presentation included the different missions, teams and planes at SAFB for groups including operations, wings, mission support, communications and medical support. Colonel Lenderman graduated from Duke University with an Electrical Engineering degree in 1993. She then attended Undergraduate Pilot Training at Columbus AFB, MS. She served tours at Grand Forks AFB, ND; Fairchild AFB, WA where she met her husband, which they both currently serves as Colonels in the US Air Force and Altus AFB, OK, flying the KC-135 Stratotanker. She performed Presidential Advance Agent duties for Air Force One and the 89th Presidential Airlift Group, commanded the 15th Air Mobility Operations Squadron at Travis AFB, CA and served as the Executive Officer to the Commander of Air Mobility Command at Scott AFB. She also served as Vice Commander of the 380th Air Expeditionary Wing in Southwest Asia and comes to Scott AFB from duties in the Pentagon. To this day Colonel Lenderman enjoys the community engagement that keeps her involved with civilians in our area while continuing her leadership lessons that begin with Listen, Love & Lift. The Colonel and teams at SAFB are preparing for a busy 2017 at SAFB celebrating their 100 year Centennial kicking off on January 6th and running thru October including the ever popular Air Show & Open House on June 10-11 featuring the USAF Thunderbirds. 8 Kristina Rasmussen is the President and Chief Operating Officer of the Illinois Policy Institute. She is responsible for executing the organization’s strategic plan, which centers on turning liberty principles into marketable policies that become law. In her spare time she loves to quilt! She recently went on vacation to Denmark with her family and was invited to dinner with the Prime Minister, Lars Rasmussen, who is also her father-in-law. This year Kristina was involved with the creation of a documentary about Michael Madigan, Illinois Speaker of the House that has been shown in theaters, local TV stations and other media outlets to show the history of the power Mr. Madigan has obtained and continues to have a hold over our State. From her post in Springfield, Kristina has helped the Illinois Policy Institute overcome steep odds to defeat multiple tax hikes and pass free-market legislation. Kristina joined the Illinois Policy Institute in 2009 as Executive Vice President, a position she held until 2016 when she became President and COO. In 2015, Kristina accepted the Overton Award from the State Policy Network, which recognized her excellence in leadership. Kristina regularly shares her insight on fiscal issues and government reform with audiences across Illinois and the nation. Her opinion pieces have been featured in statewide and national publications along with appearances on national television and radio shows. Kristina completed her master’s degree in political management at George Washington University. She graduated summa cum laude from Randolph-Macon Woman’s College with a bachelor’s degree in political science. Kristina and her husband are proud to be raising their three beautiful daughters in the Land of Lincoln. She is motivated to change Illinois because she knows the state has the potential to be a beacon of opportunity shining across the Midwest and the nation. When asked if there is one bill in Illinois you could change her response was the program in place for net earned income and welfare benefits. These programs offer more benefits for less money you make, giving false hope for families to aspire to provide for themselves and relying heavily on the State of Illinois. There are also very burdensome red-tape issues blocking families from receiving the benefits when truly in need. Kristina also covered important topics on the Illinois financial crisis, property taxes, spending priority problems, jobs, entrepreneurship barriers, cost of doing business, state workers controlling their own retirement, local government consolidation, redistricting and term limits for our government officials. 9

Significant new income tax position now available for residential developers A tax court decision that was upheld upon an appellate review in August, 2016 for Shea Homes, Inc., has significantly changed tax accounting for new residential developments. Shea Homes, Inc. builds mid and high priced homes in several states in the Southwest United States. Work is performed by the home building company (Shea) and various of its subsidiaries that develop the land, common area improvements and amenities. Total projects are carried out on a long term basis extending over more than one tax year. This decision is a major victory for residential developers. In this decision, the Ninth Circuit confirmed the tax court decision that residential developers, in certain cases, were entitled to use the completed contract method of accounting for reporting income from the sales of homes in residential developments. The completed contract method of accounting allows for deferral of the tax on the profits of house and lot sales, until the contract is completed, i.e. the time the taxes become due. Now the courts have stated the contract is not complete when house and lots are sold, but when the entire residential community is completed. The Tax Court agreed with Shea, that the project was not complete until they had completed their obligation to fulfill their promises regarding the development of the community being marketed to the buyers. The development went beyond a house and a lot; it included the elements needed to create a house within the particular planned community development that the buyer was expecting. The tax court concluded that the buyers were purchasing "the entire lifestyle of the development." This was reflected in, among other things, common improvements, bonding requirements, the creation of homeowners' associations in which each buyer had rights, and in the covenants, conditions and restrictions that ran with the land and affected not only the buyer, but also other prospective buyers and the properties they were purchasing. Not surprising, the IRS does not like the long-term completed contract method of income tax deferrals. It has pursued developers using these aggressive contracting strategies both in audits and in court. It also should be noted the same court that issued this positive Shea Homes, Inc. case also issued an opposite conclusion in the Howard Hughes Company, LLC case a few weeks later, basing its opinion on a conclusion that the contractor was not a homebuilder. The court distinguished between contactors involved in home building and land developers who do not build homes. Therefore, it is important to point out that careful planning is required and you should seek qualified professional advice.

Understand Who Holds the Risk A recent decision of the 1st District Appellate Court is cause for contractors and subcontractors to review your contract forms extremely carefully, in regard to payment obligations, if the project owner fails to pay. In Beal Bank Nevada v. Northshore Center THC, LLC, et al, 2016 IL App (1st) 151697, the court rejected the contractor’s position that the subcontractor was not entitled to be paid, until the contractor had received payment from the project owner. The contract involved stated that “payment will be made within thirty (30) days after the work called for hereunder has been completed by the Subcontractor to the satisfaction of the Owner and the Contractor and the Contractor has received from the Owner written acceptance thereof together with payment in full for this portion of the work” [emphasis added]. The 1st District held the Contractor had to pay the sub, even though the owner never paid the contractor. In doing so, the court distinguished prior rulings holding no payment was required, until the project owner paid the contractor, based on a distinction the court referred to as the difference between “pay-when-paid” clauses; and “pay-if-paid” clauses. In the former case, the court held that the risk of the owner defaulting and never paying was not assumed by the subcontractor; so, ultimately, even if the owner never paid the contractor, the contractor is still obligated to pay the sub. In the latter clauses, i.e., under a “pay-if-paid” clause, however, the risk of non-payment was found to be accepted by the subcontractor, so that the contractor had no obligation to pay, if the owner never paid the contractor. The court held that the language quoted above was a “pay-when-paid” clause, that addressed when the subcontractor, generally, was to be paid – but did not shift the risk of ultimate non-payment by the owner to the subcontractor. The court cited to several other states that have made a similar distinction. This ruling makes it imperative that contractors and subs review your form contracts and understand who holds the risk, if an owner fails to pay.

Tax Reform Done Right With elections right around the corner, tax proposals are surfacing like mushrooms after a rainstorm. While we can all agree that the current tax code is a disaster, the most recent proposals regrettably range from just bad to positively dreadful. Why? They are political documents designed to attract voters -- not tax policy experts and economists! With this in mind, I offer several key principles that should be generally followed in any successful tax reform. The primary goal of taxation is to raise revenue while causing the least economic damage possible. This means broadening the tax base. Think about it; if the only thing we taxed was oregano, we would all stop buying oregano. If, however, we taxed all spices equally, there would be no reason to avoid oregano, but there would be a strong incentive to eat bland food and smuggle in spices. But if we tax everything equally, then you have no incentive to alter your behavior as you cannot reduce your taxes. Better yet, as you broaden the base, you will be able to lower tax rates and still collect the same amount of revenue. Of course, this means doing away with most deductions, credits and exclusions, including tax breaks for charitable donations, employer-provided health insurance and state and local income taxes. The next step involves simplification. Most taxpayers resent the fact that the rich hire clever accountants and lawyers, thus reducing their tax payment to nothing or next-tonothing. This is corrosive behavior, creating distrust of the entire system across the political spectrum. Moreover, simplifying our 75,000-page federal tax code would cause entrepreneurs to think harder about how to make more money and grow their businesses, not on which lobbyists and lawyers to hire and how many racehorses to buy, all of which are unproductive activities. Tax simplification means doing away with the corporate income tax and all the insane rules regarding investment expensing, depreciation schedules, repatriation of profits, taxdeductibility of debt, R&D tax credits and so on. Third, tax consumption -- not savings. When the government taxes savings, income, interest payments, dividends, capital gains, wealth and even inheritances (but we can argue about that one), it reduces the incentive to save, invest in new plant and equipment, and, most critically, take financial risks. Recognizing this, the government already allows for health-savings accounts, IRAs, life-insurance exemptions and a multitude of trusts that the rich use to shelter wealth and avoid inheritance taxes. Why not let everyone do it without having to jump through any hoops? While consumption taxes such as sales taxes or value added taxes may sound regressive, they need not be. Consumption by the wealthy can be taxed at a higher rate than consumption by the poor. In this way, the tax code can remain progressive. Moreover, as the consumption tax will be based on the difference between what you earn and what you save, this plan will discourage hiding assets offshore, giving our economy yet another boost! The last time the tax code was reformed was during President Reagan’s second term; roughly 30 years ago! We are clearly overdue. While reaching a compromise that both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue will agree to will be tough, if done as outlined above, it will boost GDP growth and improve living standards. Congress, get going!

Plentiful Jobs but Weak Growth, Wages and Inflation While the US economy is creating plenty of jobs, it isn’t growing much. In the first half of 2016, gross domestic product (GDP) grew at an anemic annualized rate of just 1%, compared to about 2% since the end of the recession, and 2.5% from 2000 through 2007. Usually, weak economic growth has been associated with weak employment growth. But not now! Employment growth during the first six months of the year totaled slightly over one million jobs, or a healthy average of 175,000 net new jobs/month. If the historical relationship between GDP and employment that existed before the Great Recession still held, 40% fewer jobs would have been created since January. That said, what does slow growth mean for future wages, why is GDP growth so slow, is it likely to persist, and what does this imply about future interest rates? The prolonged and robust job growth we have been experiencing for the last several years has brought down the unemployment rate from 10% to just 4.9%, low by historic standards. As a result, workers are finally becoming scarce and labor costs are, at long last, rising, although not as fast as before the recession. This is because wage growth results from two forces: labor scarcity and increases in labor productivity. Having already discussed scarcity, let’s focus on productivity growth, or the increase in output per worker per hour. What we see is dismal labor productivity growth. It has actually been declining for the last three quarters in a row, the first time this has ever happened outside of a recession. This goes a long way in explaining why wage growth remains mediocre despite the low unemployment rate. While labor productivity is expected to improve and return to the 2006 – 2015 annual average rate 14 of 1.25%, that is way below the 2.5% annual growth rate between 1949 and 2005. This weak labor productivity growth is most likely the result of an aging population and years of weak corporate investment in plant and equipment. This continued lack of investment has sharply reduced corporate efficiency gains. As a result, to produce more product to meet virtually any increase in demand requires more hiring. Importantly, the conditions that have created this weak investment environment will not dissipate soon. While energy prices appear to have bottomed, it is unlikely that they will soon rise. Thus, exploration and production activity in the oil patch is unlikely to increase much. Similarly, mining firms are holding back on investment while commodity prices are weak, and manufacturers that sell their output overseas will continue to face strong headwinds due to the strong US dollar. In addition, agricultural prices are also expected to remain depressed and auto sales have peaked. Collectively, this means investment in plant and equipment is likely to remain weak, all but insuring GDP growth of at best 2% for the foreseeable future. With labor productivity weak, GDP growth sluggish, and inflation correspondingly low, the Fed has reduced how high it sees the long-term fed -funds rate reaching -- no higher than 3% compared to 4% or more as recently as 2013! As a result, it may well take three or four years for the fed-funds rate to hit just 3%. As for conventional 30-year mortgage rates, they are likely to remain below 4% well into 2018.

Dinner with our Congressmen We were delighted that Congressmen John Shimkus and Mike Bost found time in their busy schedules to join us for dinner and open discussion. The room was full of members who were ready to hear what they had to share about the work they are doing for us not only as business owners but as citizens too. The Congressmen listened to everyone’s concerns and answered questions about issues facing our industry and businesses as well as other matters facing our nation in the upcoming election. The Congressmen agreed that our nation is on the wrong path and shared the website www.abetterway.org that is full of ideas on how to address some of the biggest challenges of our time. Developed from input around the country each topic explains what Republicans are for and then details their plan on making the changes as well as reports, fact sheets, frequently asked questions and more.

Top Clinton Advisor Cites Importance of Housing to the Economy Gene Sperling, a top economic advisor to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, said that housing will play an important role in a Clinton administration. “For Hillary Clinton, growing middle-class jobs and middle-income security is the single lens in which she will judge economic policy,” Sperling said in an address to the NAHB Board of Directors at their Midyear Meeting in Miami. “What better helps the middle class than housing? Housing creates jobs in the United States. There is probably no other sector that creates jobs throughout income levels – from construction jobs to professional and servicing jobs.” Noting that the credit pendulum has swung too tight in the aftermath of the Great Recession, Sperling cited a study from the Urban Institute that compared credit availability during the pre-crisis levels to the standards of today. The study found that 5 million fewer home loans have been issued as a result of current tight lending standards. “Our challenge now is to never swing back to where we were, but to get to an equilibrium where people who are creditworthy can get the housing they need,” said Sperling. “This will lead to increased housing starts, construction and affordable housing, which we need in this country.” Sperling noted that the issue of housing finance reform is “really tough,” but stipulated that a government backstop is essential to protect the 30-year mortgage. “You need a backstop to ensure the United States of America still has a 30-year fixed mortgage,” said Sperling. “That is something that gives people the opportunity to become home owners in this country.” If Clinton is elected president, Sperling said she will: Defend and expand the Low Income Housing Tax Credit.  Encourage communities to implement land use strategies that make it easier to build affordable rental housing near good jobs by increasing funding for infrastructure banks and competitive grant programs.  Support common sense relief for community banks and make sure that any reforms level the playing field so that Wall Street banks do not have any advantages over community lenders.  Focus on a major infrastructure plan in which “she sees construction and housing as part of that larger infrastructure.” Regarding the mortgage interest deduction, Sperling said that Clinton’s tax plan would retain the mortgage interest deduction but cap the marginal rate at which households can take their deductions at 28% “So for 98% of Americans, the mortgage interest deduction is completely untouched,” said Sperling. NAHB does not endorse presidential candidates. 12 Trump Vows to Cut Burdensome Regulations in Address to Home Builders Additionally, Trump said he will end corporate inversions and repeal the estate tax, commonly referred to as the death tax. “I know so many families that have been destroyed by the death tax,” he said. “They end up losing their business or have to sell their business. Farmers are hit hard, housing companies are hit hard.” More than 950 NAHB members and guests listened to the Republican presidential candidate. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump today vowed to cut regulations that are hurting the housing and economic recovery. Speaking before more than 950 NAHB members and guests attending the NAHB Board of Directors Midyear Meeting in Miami, Trump said that over-regulation is costing the economy $2 trillion per year. “No one other than the energy industry is regulated more than the home building industry,” said Trump. “Twenty-five percent of the cost of a home is due to regulation. I think we should get that down to about 2%.” Laying out his plan to create more jobs, lower taxes and reduce burdensome regulations, Trump said: “We will impose a temporary moratorium order on new agency regulations. We’ll cancel all illegal and overreaching executive orders signed by President Obama. We will eliminate all regulations that kill jobs. We will remove the bureaucrats that only know how to kill jobs and replace them with experts who know how to create jobs without regulations.” As part of his program to spur job and economic growth, Trump promised a major tax simplification plan to reduce the tax code to three brackets and ensure that all small businesses will be taxed at no more than 15%. “Everyone’s taxes will go down under my plan,” said Trump. 13 NAHB Remodelers Chair Tim Shigley of Wichita, Kansas, had a message for More than 11,000 people viewed Trump’s address to the NAHB board via a live video feed. “We are very honored to have these national leaders address our members,” said NAHB Chairman Ed Brady. “Their presence at our board meeting conveys the important role that the nation’s housing industry will play in the upcoming elections and reaffirms that housing must remain a national priority.” NAHB does not endorse presidential candidates. Noting that his father was a home builder, Trump expressed a deep affinity for the industry. “A home builder taught me everything I know,” he said. “There is no greater thing you can do. If you can build a home, you can build anything.”

Driverless Cars At present there are 240 million cars and light trucks in the USA, most of which are parked 23 hours a day or more. This idleness makes owning and driving a car expensive. If cars could just be used more, automobile transportation costs would fall. They will not only be safer than existing cars, but will travel faster and get much better gas mileage. And, shared self-driving cars are expected to easily take 50% of existing cars off the road. Suddenly the cost of conveying a passenger is likely to be not much more than double or triple the cost of public transit. Better yet, hailing such a vehicle from the permanent circulating fleet will take little time and no more than a swipe or two on your smart phone. As a bonus, on-street parking and most off-street parking would completely disappear. That is the promise of Uber, Lyft and all the other assorted ride hailing services. But, what about the next step, driverless cars? With no driver to pay, travel becomes even cheaper. What does the promise of cheaper transportation mean for cities, commutes, sprawl, and more generally how we live? I suggest it will encourage sprawl by increasing the distance of our commutes. Here’s why: As goods and services get cheaper we generally consume more of them. For example, long distance phone calls were once prohibitively expensive and we made them rarely. Today, they are free and we make lots of them. Televisions used to be very costly; a house had just one. Now, every room has a TV. Several years ago, gasoline was $4/gallon and owning a Prius was a status symbol. Now, with gasoline at $2.25/ gallon, we are buying gas guzzlers by the gross and driving more too. In short, as something gets cheaper, we generally consume more of it. Returning our attention back to driverless cars, as new technologies and roads are built to specifically accommodate these vehicles, their transformative potential will become apparent. 14 In short, we are on the verge of faster, safer, and cheaper travel. Add to this the twin observations that people generally are willing to commute about 30 minutes to get to work, and that (possibly as a result), urban population densities have generally been declining by about 1%/year since about 1890, and you have a strong likelihood that the cost and time savings these new modes of travel promise will result in longer distance commutes, and thus continued sprawl. In short, the easier it is to get from “Here” to “There”, the farther away from “There” people are apt to live. Moreover, this outcome is highly likely no matter how things turn out. If we enthusiastically embrace ride-sharing technology, something Americans have never done, we will all be whisked speedily to our now ever-distant places of work and sprawl continues. By contrast, if few of us ride-share and we instead use our own selfdriving cars, which is probably more likely, it would mean more cars on the road and thus slightly slower speeds than what could be achieved via mass ride-sharing and thus longer commutes. But we would all be watching TV or reading so who cares! Elliot Eisenberg, Ph.D. is President of GraphsandLaughs, LLC and can be reached at Elliot@graphsandlaughs.net.

Applicants and Winners receive consumer and peer recognition throughout the year in print, social media and HBA Remodelers website page. NAHB Helps Improve, Clarify Formaldehyde Rule The final Formaldehyde Emission Standards for Composite Wood Products rule has been released by the Environmental Protection Agency. The rule establishes formaldehyde emission standards as well as product testing and tracking requirements for composite wood products. And thanks to the work of NAHB members and staff, the final rule includes some significant and notable changes for the renovation and construction industry, including clarification of certain terms to exclude renovation and construction activities. NAHB met with EPA and the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in May during OMB’s review of the draft final rule to discuss the Federation’s concerns — the only group representing the industry to do so — and EPA listened. Former NAHB Remodelers Chair Robert Criner highlighted the lack of clarity and overly broad nature of the proposed rule, pointing specifically to confusing definitions for key terms. Remodelers and builders, he said, were unsure which requirements they would be governed by. As a result of NAHB’s concerns, EPA again reviewed the intent of Congress when it asked for the new standards — and the agency agreed that remodeling work is not the kind of activity that Congress intended to regulate. EPA added specific exceptions in the final rule to both the definition of the terms “fabricator” and “retailer” to ensure it is clear that remodelers are not intended to be covered. In addition, EPA clarified the meaning of the term “finished good” to help address concerns regarding the scope and applicability of the rule. According to EPA, Congress intended to regulate goods that are “produced through a manufacturing process at a manufacturing facility, not objects like buildings or other structures that are constructed on site and become a permanent addition to real property.” This means that new construction built on site will not be subject to the regulation, but the rule may still apply to mobile home manufacturing (NAICS code 321991) and prefabricated wood building manufacturing (NAICS code 321992), such as decorative particleboard and plywood. EPA highlighted these changes in the preamble of the final rule, as well as in the rule’s accompanying EPA Fact Sheet, stating that “By regulating the manufacture of a product, the regulation works to ensure that only compliant composite wood products enter the marketplace.” NAHB had reminded OMB in May that the statute required EPA to set a de minimis level of regulated content, defining what goods would not be subject to the regulations. The final rule clarifies that finished goods that do not contain regulated content exceeding 144 square inches, based on the surface area of the largest face, are not subject to regulation. 9 NAHB staff continues its review, and a full summary of the rule will be posted shortly. The rule will be effective 60 days after publication in the Federal Register, which is expected within 10 working days from it when it was signed on July 27.

REGISTER @ BUILDERSSHOW.COM/AUGUST 12 Overregulation Is Preventing a Full Recovery for Housing Builder Magazine - July 2016: Ed Brady NAHB Chairman of the Board For the housing industry, regulatory costs are a major concern. We are all incredibly relieved that the darkest days for housing triggered by the Great Recession are over. In the past few years, our industry has gradually picked up speed. Recent government data show that single-family production has increased 120% from the market low in 2009. But as far as we’ve come, there’s still a long way to go. Housing production, while improving, remains at only 58% of normal. Several obstacles are preventing a complete recovery, including overregulation of the housing industry. Overly burdensome regulations complicate our businesses while providing little of their intended benefits. But even more important, they add to the cost of the house—making it more difficult or even impossible for many deserving families to achieve the American dream of homeownership. A recently published NAHB study shows that government regulations account for 24.3% of the final price of a new single-family home. Threefifths of this total—or 14.6% of the final house price—is due to regulations imposed during the lot’s development. The other two-fifths—or 9.7% of the home price—are regulatory costs incurred by the builder after purchasing the finished lot. In this study, our economists also report that regulatory costs imposed on an average singlefamily home increased almost 30% in the past five years, rising from $65,224 in 2011 to $84,671 in 2016. This trend is likely to continue, as there are a number of regulations in the pipeline. These include OSHA’s new rules on reducing silica exposure, fire sprinkler mandates, and the Department of Labor’s recently finalized regulation on overtime pay. 13 Equally troubling, the cost of regulations in the price of a new home is rising more than twice as fast as our buyers’ ability to pay for it. Disposable income per capita increased by only 14.4% in this same five-year time span. NAHB economists estimate that 14 million American households are “priced out” of the market for a typical newly built home by government regulations. Regulations come in many forms and can be imposed by local, state, or federal governments. For instance, local jurisdictions may charge permit, hook-up, and impact fees and establish development and construction standards. State governments may be involved in these processes directly or indirectly. Meanwhile, the federal government can require certain permits for land development, among other measures. There is a need for sensible regulations in our industry, but we must put a stop to excessive mandates that do little else besides increase the cost of housing. That is why the NAHB devotes a great deal of time and effort to fighting regulatory overreach on behalf of its members. NAHB battles overregulation head-on, engaging with legislators and regulators and using legal measures when necessary. We are not alone. More and more people are waking up to the fact that housing affordability has become a real problem, with lasting effects on consumers and the overall economy. Our government should be part of the solution to make homeownership accessible to hardworking Americans. Ed Brady, the 2016 NAHB Chairman, is a second-generation home builder based in Illinois. Having grown up the son of a builder, Brady is a builder by blood and has a deep understanding of the problems builders are facing.

Penalties for OSHA Fines Will Increase Aug. 1 On Aug. 1, monetary penalties issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for regulation infractions are slated to rise by up to 150% depending on the type of violation. Type of Violation Serious Other-Than-Serious Posting Requirements Failure to Abate Willful or Repeated Current Maximum Penalty $7,000 per violation $7,000 per day beyond the abatement date $70,000 per violation New Maximum Penalty $12,471 per violation $12,471 per day beyond the abatement date $124,709 per violation Last fall, the president signed a budget bill that allowed the agency to enact a catch-up adjustment and raise fines annually in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI). This marks the first time in 25 years that OSHA fines have gone up. These are for individual violations—not an overall total for the number of violations a business may receive. Previously, OSHA was one of few federal agencies with civil penalties that do not increase with inflation. OSHA intends to provide guidance on the implementation of the new penalties by Aug. 1. Additionally, to address the impact they may have on small businesses, the agency plans to continue providing penalty reductions based on employer size and other factors. States that operate their own Occupational Safety and Health Plans are required to adopt maximum penalty levels that are at least as effective as federal OSHA’s. How can you prevent this from happening at your business?  Develop a written safety program highlighting how your business will comply with the OSHA regulations (osha.gov) OSHA's 2015 TOP TEN  Conduct compliance training as required by OSHA with your employees and document the training with employee sign-in sheets (osha.gov/Publications/osha2254.pdf)  Walk around your job sites on a daily basis and search for hazards and fix them before employees are injured.  Get employees involved in your safety program. They do the hands-on work and probably have a lot of ideas on how to improve the safety and efficiency of the business.  Create safety committees to explore additional ideas that will work in your business. 14 Most Frequently Cited Violations for Fiscal 2015 (Oct. 1, 2014, to Sept. 30, 2015) 1. 1926.501 – Fall Protection (C) 2. 1910.1200 – Hazard Communication 3. 1926.451 – Scaffolding (C) 4. 1910.134 – Respiratory Protection 5. 1910.147 – Lockout/Tagout 6. 1910.178 – Powered Industrial Trucks 7. 1926.1053 – Ladders (C) 8. 1910.305 – Electrical, Wiring Methods 9. 1910.212 – Machine Guarding 10. 1910.303 – Electrical, General Requirements (C) = Construction standard *As of 01/05/16 Professional Women in Building Council Announces another Scholarship Recipient for 2016 Allison Gasper, a senior at O’Fallon High School is an incredible student who has a 4.127 GPA.

SAFETY APPS for Smartphones Smartphones are an important part of everyday life. For your construction insured's, they can and should be used a s safety tools. There are many safety apps available for iPhone or Androids products that can make it easier to ensure a safe jobsite. For example, OSHA has a heat stress app on its website that calculates the heat index, displays a risk level and provides protective measures. NIOAH has a ladder safety app that helps a user position a ladder at the proper angle and provides other useful tips. TrenchSafety and Supply, Inc. has a slope calculator app that gives elevation requirements for sloping versus shielding. All these useful tools are available at no cost, and many more exist in the app marketplace. To help assess the best apps for your construction accounts, you can find reviews on hundreds of safety apps at safetyawakenings.com/apps. 15

14 Million Households “Priced Out” by Government Regulation BY: NATALIA SINIAVSKAIA ON MAY 12, 2016 NAHB Economics estimates that 14 million American households are priced out of the market for a new home by government regulations that, on average, increase the new home price by 24.3%. Households become “priced out” when they no longer qualify for a new home mortgage because of higher prices. A recent NAHB study estimated that, on average, regulations imposed by government at all levels account for 24.3% of the final new home price. For a typical new single-family home built for sale, this translates into additional $84,561. The NAHB Priced Out Model uses the most recent US household income distribution and estimates that 48.4 million US households can qualify for a new home mortgage in the absence of government regulation. However, after the regulatory costs are added to the price, only 34.4 million households remain able to qualify for a mortgage. The difference is 14 million US households priced out of the new home market by price escalations due to government regulations. The assumptions NAHB Economics typically uses in “priced-out” computations are a down payment equal to 10 percent of the purchase price and a 30-year fixed rate mortgage. For a loan with this down payment, lenders would typically require mortgage insurance, so NAHB also assumes an annual premium of 45 basis points for private mortgage insurance. Information about property taxes and property insurance per dollar of home value comes from the 2014 American Community Survey (ACS). The current version of the NAHB Priced Out Model uses the most recent US household income distribution based on the 2014 ACS data. NAHB Economics makes relatively minor adjustments to the ACS income distribution to account for income and population changes that may have occurred since 2014. Even though the NAHB Priced Out Model does not estimate effects of new regulation on new home sales or housing starts, it highlights often overlooked effects of regulation on affordability of new homes.

Contractors Exempt from Overtime Pay? Maybe Not… Employers and need to know about these changes to overtime rules. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which originally introduced the concepts of a 40 hour work week, a minimum wage, and “time-and-a-half” overtime pay, the Department of Labor is changing the rules for overtime exemptions. The new standards are outlined in the “Final Rule on Defining and Delimiting the Exemptions for Executive, Administrative, and Professional Employees.” The Final Rule updates the salary and compensation levels needed to exempt certain workers from overtime pay. The new rules are effective December 1, 2016. In order for an employee to be exempt from overtime pay, he or she must meet three conditions. These are often called “white collar exemptions.” 1. Salary basis test – meaning that a worker is paid on a salary basis rather than hourly. 2. Salary level test – meaning the worker’s salary falls within a certain range. 3. Duties test – meaning the job involves exempt duties, including certain professional fields and various management or executive responsibilities. The only requirement affected by the Final Rule is the salary level test. Any employee earning more than $913 per week (or $47,476 per year) will be exempt from overtime pay, provided they also pass both the salary basis and duties tests. The amount is currently $455 per week (or $23,660 per year.) Up to 10% of this standard salary level can include nondiscretionary bonuses and incentive payments such as commissions. The other major change is that this wage threshold will be automatically adjusted every three years, beginning on January 1, 2020. Options for employers for responding to the Final Rule Employers may want to evaluate their payroll data and the needs of their business to decide if they should make any changes with compliance to the Final Rule. The following are general options and are not intended to be specific suggestions. 1. Make no changes – An employer can choose to make no changes to his/her employees’ pay or hours. They will continue to pay current salaries but will now include overtime after 40 hours for all employees making less than $913 per week. 2. Raise salaries – An employer may choose to raise salaries above the $913 threshold for certain employees. If the employee meets the two other white collar exemption criteria, they would be exempt from overtime pay. 3. Reorganize workloads, adjust schedules or spread work hours – Distributing assignments to different employees may equalize the overtime necessary to complete projects. 4. Adjust wages – Changing a salaried worker to an hourly rate may prove more costeffective. Seasonality is not a factor and "compensatory time" cannot be used to offset overtime from one week to the next. Exceptions Sub-contractors control their own employees and overtime is not an issue with the general contractor. As always, be careful, to make sure they qualify as an independent contractor or you may be liable for other payroll issues as well as overtime. At Diel & Forguson LLC, it is our job to make sure that you have the knowledge you need to comply with the ever-changing rules and laws affecting you and your business. We are here to answer questions and offer advice about your specific situation. O'Fallon, IL Kenneth R.

The Economic Forecast for the Second Half of 2016: Decent but Nothing Remarkable Despite GDP again slowing in Q1, as has been the case for the past few years, the economic recovery that began in July 2009 remains intact. The poor performance of the US economy from January through March was almost expected, and the incoming employment, housing, and service sector data all point to a modest economic pickup. GDP growth the rest of the year should average 2.2%, with growth in Q2 closer to 2.75% as the economy rebounds from a tough Q1. The combination of continued wage growth and increased residential construction activity suggests that 2016 will probably improve as it progresses. Despite weak energy prices, a continued strong dollar that has hurt manufacturing by making US exports costly and imports cheaper, and a struggling agricultural sector, the rest of the economy is OK. As long as the service sector and construction continue to expand and wages rise, the US economy will continue to grow despite the headwinds it faces. Importantly, the labor market continues to strengthen, voluntary quit rates are rising and are almost back to where they were before the Great Recession, the number of involuntary terminations keeps falling, and job creation, while down from last year, remains strong. At this rate, there will be little slack in the labor market 12 months from today. Lastly, passage of the FY 2016 budget package has boosted economic activity as it extended some tax breaks and eased spending caps on domestic and military spending, making fiscal policy pleasantly expansionary. A definite economic bright spot in 2016 has been housing, and that is due to rising household formation. After averaging well over 1.2 million annually from 1983 through 2006, household formation plummeted to just 600,000 in 2014. Since then, it has been rising by about 1.2 million a year. Add to this slightly improved access to credit, and housing starts should reach an annualized average rate of 1.19 million during the second half of 2016, their best level since late 2007, with new single-family construction contributing at a pace of 810,000 units and multifamily adding 380,000. Despite being severely constrained by a lack of inventory, pending home sales are strengthening and existing home sales should rise by 3% annually, while home prices should rise by 5% annually. As for inflation, it remains benign but shows signs of slowly rising from its current level. The dollar is likely to strengthen slightly in the latter part of the year and oil prices appear to be rising, thus the two trends that have exerted strong deflationary pressures on imports and energy respectively should dissipate. Moreover, as the unemployment rate continues falling, labor shortages are becoming increasingly widespread. This pushes up wage growth, which is definitely rising, albeit modestly, and thereby boosts household spending. However, rising prices and wages will push the Fed to raise shortterm rates by one-quarter-of-one percent as early as July, and certainly by November or December. Long-term rates have bottomed and 10-yr Treasuries will end the year at close to 2% as the economy strengthens. In short, the economy continues to grow modestly. Short-term interest rates are likely to start rising, wages are rising, and residential construction activity looks to continue to slowly strengthen as we go into 2017. Most critically, continued solid job creation will keep consumer spending up and the likelihood of a recession during the next six months, close to zero. 10 Elliot Eisenberg, Ph.D. is President of GraphsandLaughs, LLC and can be reached at Elliot@graphsandlaughs.net.

Do you need a tool to help with:  Marketing  Selling your new home or remodeling project  Promoting confidence in you & your company  Resolving Customer Concerns  Avoiding misunderstandings  “Nit-Picking” Customers Provide your Customers with an Illinois Quality Assurance Builder Standards Book! $30.00 ea. + shipping & taxes Each 200 page book includes Quality Standards for the most prevalent issues that arise between the Builder/ Remodeler and the Customer. Below is a sample of a common issue in Illinois, exterior concrete cracking. The standard is explained to define the expectations of quality craftsmanship for the Customer. These books will help eliminate problems before the project even begins! Only Members can buy these books! A Measurable Difference The Illinois Quality Assurance Builder Standards provides, new homebuyers and remodeling homeowners a way to measure the quality of the project against an industry approved set of standards. These standards create a series of performance standards that the builders and the homeowners can use to communicate and understand one others' expectations regarding the building or remodeling project. The standards address the most prevalent issues that arise between the builder and the customer before the project, and, most importantly, after the project is completed. All too often it is the undefined expectations that create the majority of the problems encountered in the building and remodeling processes. The standards will help eliminate problems before the project even begins. 6100 West Main Street – Maryville, IL 62062 or 618-343-6331 - tbutler@hbaswil.org 14 Sample of an Issue in the QA book. 4.4 Cracks in Exterior Concrete Observation: Exterior concrete - sidewalks, porches, patios, drive- ways, etc. - are cracked. Standard: Some random cracking of exterior concrete will occur and is to be expected. If settling causes cracks that exceed 1/4 inch width or 3/16 inch in vertical displacement, it is considered excessive. Builder’s Responsibility: The builder is responsible for correcting only those cracks that exceed the standard. An appropriate joint or crack filler can be used and is acceptable for a crack up to 1/2 inch in width or vertical displacement. Homeowner’s Responsibility: For aesthetic purposes, smaller cracks may be filled with a waterproof concrete caulk. While this may reduce the appearance of the crack, it should be noted that there will be a color and texture variance between the original concrete and the caulking. Discussion: Driveways, patios, and sidewalks should have expansion and contraction joints which help to control surface cracking. Refer to definition number 5 on page 9. Contained in the 200 pages of the QA Book are 22 section of the most prevalent issues encountered in the construction process. Each section contains numerous sub-sections of specific items. An example is the above 4.4 Cracks in Exterior Concrete.

Avery Bourne & Tracy Butler Opposing the reversal of Authority for Public Construction Bonds (SB3053). The law in place allowing cities & counties to require developers to post a cash bond to insure that the public improvements on new developments are completed is already in place and has worked well for many years. This is not a broken law and there Is no need to “fix it”. This bill has been held from consideration. Opposing Mandatory Paid Sick Leave (HB3297 & SB2147) would place a hardship, especially on small business owners, like builders and remodelers who operate on the slimmest of margins. The HB is dead and the SB was not called for consideration. Support Government Consolidation (HB4501) a bill to increase county governments authority to make local government more effective. Currently in its 2nd reading but probably will not move in time. Group picture with Senators Kyle McCarter & James Clayborne Opposition to Expand State Sales Tax onto Construction Contractors proposed. This expansion would affect primarily transactions between remodeling contractors and home owners. HBAI presented a NAHB estimate that in 2015, $5.2 billion in residential remodeling activity in IL would have been affected and the devastating impact it would have on both business and consumers. This proposal will not move forward. That all being said, all HBA’s in the state were very successful with their efforts to address these concerns with our state Legislators. Kristina Rasumussen with the Illinois Policy Institute, Rep. Terri Bryant along with Jan Johnson & Tracy Butler A special THANK YOU to Kyle Anderson with the Illinois Association of REALTORS for helping our staff set up our own room to meet with the Legislators! Senator Sam McCann, Senator Luechtefeld, and Representatives Charlie Meier & Dwight Kay took time to hear our concerns with all the bills and discuss the other happenings at the Capitol. 9

In a hard-hitting official statement, NAHB Chairman Ed Brady said: “The sheer arrogance displayed by the Department of Labor in failing to heed the concerns of the nation’s small business community will result in severe repercussions that will harm workers, small businesses, housing affordability, job growth and the economy. “By radically doubling the current overtime salary limit of $23,660 to $47,476, this blatant regulatory overreach will essentially hurt many of the workers the rule was meant to help. Small business owners across the land, including the vast majority of home building firms, will be forced to scale back on pay and benefits, as well as cutting workers’ hours in order to avoid overtime requirements and remain in business. “Congress can play a constructive role by moving quickly to pass the Protecting Workplace Advancement and Opportunity Act (House bill H.R. 4773 and Senate bill S. 2707), legislation that 11 would force the agency to withdraw this rule until it has considered the effects it would have on small businesses, consumers, workers and the economy.” The rule, which will take effect Dec. 1, indexes the salary threshold to inflation every three years, forcing employers to go through this process on an ongoing basis. Moreover, the huge spike in the overtime threshold could force many employers to convert salaried employees to hourly workers in order to remain solvent. These workers could wind up earning less money than they were making previously, and lose the workplace flexibility that comes with being a salaried employee.. This 100% increase to the salary threshold for overtime eligibility will hit the home building industry particularly hard and harm housing affordability. It will reduce job-advancement opportunities and the hours of full-time construction supervisors, leading to construction delays, increased costs and less affordable housing options for consumers. NAHB estimates more than 96,000 construction supervisors would become overtime eligible under this rule. “Given the huge economic disruption this rule will cause, the Department of Labor needs to start over and produce a sensible plan that will gradually raise the overtime threshold from its current rate and properly take into account the regional variations in wages and cost of living,” said Brady.

This meant that the home they bought must be built sufficient for its intended purpose as a residence; and the builder would be responsible for latent defects for a “reasonable” period of time after construction. Petersen v. Hubschman Construction Co., 76 Ill. 2d 31 (1979). By: Sue Schultz, Sandberg Phoenix & von Gontard P.C. resident not sold the home quickly (i.e., original buyer had not waived the implied warranty and would have had the benefit of the warranty, had they continued to live in the home when the latent defect was discovered. Redarowicz v. Ohlendorf, 92 Ill. 2d 171 (1982). The Illinois Supreme Court did hold, however, that the buyer and the builder could contract for the buyer to waive the implied warranty, but required that strict requirements be followed, to establish a knowing waiver for which consideration was given. Consideration has, frequently, been given in the form of an express warranty that was for a specified duration (typically, one or two years), and/or a lower purchase price for the home. In 1982, the Supreme Court expanded the benefit of the implied warranty to a subsequent purchaser who purchased the house from the original resident within a short period of time (in the actual case, approximately 1 year), because the builder was in the same position as they would have been, had the original In 2015, the 1st District Appellate Court ruled that the implied warranty of habitability protected a second purchaser, even when the original purchaser had executed a knowing waiver for which the builder provided consideration and the second buyer bought the house “AS IS” from the original buyer. Fattah v. Mirek Bim et al, 2015 IL App (1st) 140171, para. 41. In an opinion filed May 19, 2016, the Illinois Supreme Court reversed this ruling of the appellate court, and held that the implied warranty of habitability does not continue to apply to a second purchaser, if the original purchaser had given a proper waiver for which the builder provided adequate consideration. The Court noted that to hold otherwise would alter the contract for which the builder had bargained. This decision restores the basis for builders to 13 prudently enter express warranties, in consideration for a knowing waiver of the implied warranty by the original purchaser. The ruling is a good reason for all builders to review the contracts and practices you use, to ensure you are properly obtaining a knowing waiver of the implied warranty, if you do offer an express warranty and/or a lower purchase price, in exchange for a waiver of the implied warranty. It is an even better reason for builders who are not presently obtaining waivers to discuss the practice with qualified legal counsel. For those who build in Missouri, it should be noted that Missouri, also, recognizes the implied warranty of habitability – but did not join with Illinois in expanding the protection to a second buyer and limits the warranty to benefit only the first purchaser who had directly contracted with the builder. John H. Ambruster & Co. v. Hayden Company – Builder Developer, Inc., 622 S.W.2d 704, 705 (Mo. App. E.D. 1981) and Clark v. Landelco, Inc., 657 S.W.2d 634 (Mo. App. W.D. 1983). Similar to Illinois, Missouri allows a knowing waiver by the first purchaser; but strict requirements must be followed.

Government Assistance Increases Wages! All too frequently the argument is made that government assistance programs subsidize low wage employers. That is, firms like Wal-Mart, McDonalds and Target, to name just a few, are able to pay very low wages precisely because management knows that their low paid employees will qualify for Medicaid, food stamps (officially known as the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program) and other such public assistance. As a result, it’s assumed that these public programs allow firms to pay lower wages than would be possible were these programs not to exist. To be blunt, this position is completely wrong. Rather than subsidizing low-wage employers, public assistance programs generally reduce the supply of low-skilled workers who are willing to work for low pay and poor benefits. This is because in many cases, benefits are more generous when family incomes are very low or zero. As family income rises, benefits are frequently cut back or eliminated entirely. By reducing the pool of workers willing to take poorly paying jobs, Medicaid and most public assistance programs tend to increase, rather than decrease, wages at the bottom of the pay scale. Were these programs not to exist, the unemployed would be more eager to work than they currently are, and thus more willing to work at a lower wage. Again, the availability of health insurance, food stamps, and other assistance when work is not a requirement means that paid employment is somewhat less attractive than would otherwise be the case. Moreover, the fact that in many cases benefits are reduced as earnings rise means that work is financially less rewarding to these households than it is to unsubsidized households. In short, programs that offer more generous payments to those with no earnings than to those with higher incomes reduces the supply of workers willing to work at very low pay. This is quite the opposite of a subsidy to lowwage paying firms. Two programs that are exceptions to the above are the Earned Income tax Credit (EITC) and childcare subsidies targeted at working families with low incomes. Because benefits are only paid to families with a parent who is employed, these programs encourage work. By boosting the supply of low-wage labor, these programs increase labor supply and thus decrease wages. However, these programs are not really subsidies to low-wage employers. Rather, they are programs that offer inducements for low-wage workers to enter the job market and take jobs that do not offer adequate pay by making it financially advantageous to do so. The goal of the EITC is to improve the standard of living of low-income families and encourage work, without fear that as a result of a rise in earned income, public benefits will be lost. In this way the EITC makes work pay. In conclusion, public assistance programs that offer benefits to non-working Americans reduce the incentive to work, thus boosting wages. Similarly, programs that dramatically reduce benefits as household income rises also boost wages by making work less attractive. There are no subsidies here. While programs that incentivize work, like the EITC, increase the supply of workers and thus decrease wages slightly, calling such programs employer subsidies is essentially mistaking the bathwater for the baby. 14 Elliot Eisenberg, Ph.D. is President of GraphsandLaughs, LLC and can be reached at Elliot@graphsandlaughs.net.

Below is a sample of a common issue in Illinois, exterior concrete cracking. The standard is explained to define the expectations of quality craftsmanship for the Customer. These books will help eliminate problems before the project even begins! Only Members can buy these books! A Measurable Difference The Illinois Quality Assurance Builder Standards provides, new homebuyers and remodeling homeowners a way to measure the quality of the project against an industry approved set of standards. These standards create a series of performance standards that the builders and the homeowners can use to communicate and understand one others' expectations regarding the building or remodeling project. The standards address the most prevalent issues that arise between the builder and the customer before the project, and, most importantly, after the project is completed. All too often it is the undefined expectations that create the majority of the problems encountered in the building and remodeling processes. The standards will help eliminate problems before the project even begins. 6100 West Main Street – Maryville, IL 62062 or 618-343-6331 - tbutler@hbaswil.org 20 Sample of an Issue in the QA book. 4.4 Cracks in Exterior Concrete Observation: Exterior concrete - sidewalks, porches, patios, drive- ways, etc. - are cracked. Standard: Some random cracking of exterior concrete will occur and is to be expected. If settling causes cracks that exceed 1/4 inch width or 3/16 inch in vertical displacement, it is considered excessive. Builder’s Responsibility: The builder is responsible for correcting only those cracks that exceed the standard. An appropriate joint or crack filler can be used and is acceptable for a crack up to 1/2 inch in width or vertical displacement. Homeowner’s Responsibility: For aesthetic purposes, smaller cracks may be filled with a waterproof concrete caulk. While this may reduce the appearance of the crack, it should be noted that there will be a color and texture variance between the original concrete and the caulking. Discussion: Driveways, patios, and sidewalks should have expansion and contraction joints which help to control surface cracking. Refer to definition number 5 on page 9. Contained in the 200 pages of the QA Book are 22 section of the most prevalent issues encountered in the construction process. Each section contains numerous sub-sections of specific items. An example is the above 4.4 Cracks in Exterior Concrete.

SEPTEMBER SATURDAY 24 SUNDAY 25 St. Louis Regional Airport 8 Terminal Drive, East Alton IL (618) 259-2531 Page 16 www.LocalBuilderEvents.com New Homes on Parade Event June 2016 New Homes Benefit More Than Just Buyers and Builders By Jeff Schmidt with RLP Development. ~ President, Home Builders Association of Greater Southwest IL The only people who benefit when a house is built are the family members who get to live there, and the builder who constructed and sold the home, right? Wrong. The positive impact of new residential construction is farreaching, bringing benefits to families, businesses and services throughout a community immediately, as well as for years to come. According to economists at the National Association of Home Builders, the one-year estimated local impacts of building 100 single -family homes in a typical metro area include $28.7 million in local income, $3.6 million in taxes and other local government revenue, and 394 local jobs. But what does that economic impact mean in the real, day-today lives of community residents? Just think about it. When a family moves to a community and buys a new house, they will likely shop at local stores to buy furniture and accessories to decorate the home. They will fill their car’s gas tank at local gas stations so they can get to the stores, have local mechanics work on the car when it breaks down or needs the oil changed, or buy a new car at a local dealer when it’s time to replace the old one. The family may need to hire local companies for regular services to maintain their home, such as landscaping, house cleaning, pet sitters or pool upkeep. The children will enroll in local schools. This increases enrollment, meaning more teachers, janitors, cafeteria workers and other school support staff will need to be hired. All of this economic activity puts income into the pockets of local business owners and their families, who can then afford to go out and spend money themselves, which recycles even more money into the community’s economy. The new family also pays local and state taxes. These tax revenues help pay for a wide range of government services, including school teachers, police departments, refuse collection, parks maintenance and road repairs. Over the long term, as the families who move into new homes become part of the community, their positive impact continues. NAHB estimates that those 100 new homes also provide the community with additional, annually-recurring impacts of $4.1 million in local income, $1 million in taxes and other revenue for local governments, and 69 local jobs. Families who buy a newly built home enjoy benefits including safety, amenities, energy efficiency and floor plans to fit a modern lifestyle. But the advantages of new homes extend far beyond the buyers and the builders - residential construction has a positive, direct impact on the local community for years.

BEWARE BEING YOUR OWN HOME BUILDER By: Jeff Schmidt with RLP Development, President Home Builders Association of Greater Southwest Illinois Homeownership is the foundation of the American Dream, and in today’s do-it-yourself culture where how-to advice for just about anything can be found on the internet, many people think they could save a lot of money by building their own home. But your home is likely the single largest investment you will make in your lifetime, and not hiring a professional home builder could be a costly mistake for many reasons—financial, emotional, and physical. Building your own home is a risky proposition from a legal standpoint, as well. Home builders carry Builder’s Risk, General Liability and Workman's Compensation insurance on their building projects. As a self-contractor, you will have to assume most, if not all, of the same liabilities. You may want to consult with an attorney regarding potential liability issues, and with an insurance agent concerning appropriate insurance coverage. Getting financing is an important consideration. As a self-contractor, lenders have strict guidelines and limits on how much money they will give you, and they will require that you provide house plans, specifications and an itemized list of documented costs and bids beforehand. Even if you feel that you have enough cash to do the job, it is wise to get a loan to cover material or labor cost increases, upgrades or material overruns. Many mortgage companies will not lend money to cover unanticipated costs on a home when construction has already begun. Professional home builders are experts at the logistics and timing of building a home. It is an exact science to make sure permits are applied for, materials are ordered and delivered, subcontractors are hired, utility deposits are paid, and inspections are scheduled at exactly the right time. Even if you’re very organized, it is a process where many things can go wrong and a delay could cost you thousands of dollars and a lot of stress. Page 22 www.LocalBuilderEvents.com Home builders have staff to take care of all the details of building a home, and established relationships with other professionals to complete the job, which is why they can build a home in a relatively quick timeframe. To build an average 1,500 sq. ft. home, you need to be prepared to spend at least 35 hours per week for at least five or six months, and most people don’t have jobs with that kind of flexibility. You will also need the time to determine and order the materials, evaluate bids, and hire and schedule qualified, licensed, insured and/or certified subcontractors. Finally, if you sell the home you’ve built, you may be responsible for any defects that are discovered afterwards. As the home’s builder, you or your estate will be responsible for claims brought by subsequent owners of the home. These are just a few of the things you need to think about before building your own home. By hiring a professional home builder, you will get quality of workmanship, building code compliance and an outstanding level of knowledge.

The Lasting Value of Homeownership By: Jeff Schmidt with RLP Development President, Home Builders Association of Greater Southwest Illinois The housing industry celebrates the many benefits of owning a home. Families continue to seek and achieve the American Dream of homeownership and take their place among the more than 74 million Americans that own a home. Home appreciation over the long term builds financial security for a family’s future. But most home owners don’t have to wait for the home’s value to increase to realize the financial benefits. Right from the first year, the majority of home owners are able to annually deduct the mortgage interest and property taxes they paid off their taxable income. This can mean thousands of dollars saved off a family’s tax bill every year. When the family sells the home, the capital gains exclusion exempts up to $250,000 of the profit ($500,000 for married couples) from taxes. But the value of homeownership can be much more than financial. Owning a home can often be a lifestyle improvement, enabling a family to enjoy a neighborhood, features and other amenities that suit their present and future day-to-day activities. Newly-constructed houses deliver energy efficiency, storage space, well-designed floor plans, and the latest technologies in electrical systems and appliances. Rooms are often spacious, with high ceilings and lots of windows to let in light. A new home also comes with the peace of mind of little maintenance needed and a warranty against defects. Existing homes offer neighborhoods whose character has already been established, mature landscaping with tall trees, and an Page 32 www.LocalBuilderEvents.com New Homes on Parade Event June 2016 existing selection of businesses and services for the home owner to use. If the home isn’t already a great fit to the buyers’ taste, it can be renovated to reflect the new owners’ needs and preferences. Homeownership lets families build connections. Owners take pride in their homes, and develop friendships with other people who also own homes and care about the neighborhood. A home is a place where families make a sanctuary that feels comfortable and safe, and where they develop social networks, begin friendships and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Jan has played a major role in establishing the Professional Women in Building Council. As Chair, she guided the committee to achieve all of their 2015 goals by holding seminars with local Mayors, bowling tournament and silent auction. All of these efforts made it possible for the committee to give back to the community in many ways: two scholarships, donations to the Collinsville Area Vocational CenterBuilding Trades, Partners for Pets, Cahokia Citizens Food Pantry and Community Basket as well as helping 6 children have a gift filled Christmas. Congratulations to a taskforce that made great strides in taking the 1-55 Corridor Plan from one that was far reaching and over bearing to landowners in its coverage as well as residential developers and builders to a plan that makes sense to everyone involved while keeping with current codes and practices. This committee also opened the door showing local municipalities that we can work together and be a great resource!

The unemployment rate should continue falling, house prices are likely to rise by 5%, and the economy will be led almost entirely by the continuing improvement in household balance sheets, and in conjunction with increased employment and slightly faster wage growth. Government spending will be slightly higher in 2016 (but not enough to matter), capital expenditures by firms will remain weak, and exports will continue to suffer due to the strong US dollar. The most serious domestic problem is weak inflation, and it should begin to increase. Despite continuing poor global economic growth, the American economy will not weaken, but is also unlikely to strengthen much. With this in mind, I expect fullyear 2016 GDP to come in at 2.4%, slightly higher than the expected 2.2% GDP growth experienced in 2015. New housing starts should increase by about 12%, with total starts coming in at 1.25 million. Single -family starts will likely total 830,000, up from 710,000, while multifamily starts should hit 410,000, up from 400,000. New and existing home sales should rise by about 4% and end the year at 6.0 million, with mortgage purchase volume advancing by $60 billion and refinance activity falling by about $250 billion. Housing inventories should jump by about 150,000 units, to 5.5 months of inventory, up from 5.0 months now. 2016 FORECAST Given the continued improving labor market, expect net new monthly job growth to average 185,000/month, which while down from 205,000/month in 2015, is excellent given the shrinking size of the working age population. As a result, the unemployment rate should fall from 5.0% today to between 4.6% and 4.8% by year end and possibly lower, depending upon the behavior of the labor force participation rate (LFPR). If the LFPR rises, and that would be good, unemployment may end the year as high as 4.8%, but if the LFPR continues to fall, an unemployment rate of 4.6% or even 4.5% is distinctly possible. As for inflation, headline inflation will noticeably increase while core inflation (which excludes food and energy) edges up only slightly. Inflation should rise because energy and commodity prices are not likely to fall further and the dollar is unlikely to continue strengthening. 9 As a result, the downward pressure these forces have exerted on headline inflation will cease and headline inflation, now at 0.3%, should move towards the core rate which is now at 1.3% and will probably rise to 1.7% by year end, which is still below the Fed target of 2%. As a result, the Federal Reserve will have the luxury of time to slowly raise the federal funds rate from where it is now, between 0.25% and 0.50%, to between 1.00% and 1.25% by year end, with a rate increase coming every three to four months. As a result of slightly faster GDP growth and falling unemployment in 2016, 10-year Treasuries will end the year at 2.75% and 30year mortgage rates will probably hover around 4.5% as the yield curve flattens due to faster rising short-term rates. But slightly easing credit conditions and rising consumer spending due to improving employment numbers and wages will keep the economy and housing market on track despite mildly higher interest rates. Finally, I put the chances of a recession in 2016 at 15% to 20%. So look forward to steady economic activity in 2016 and fear not slowly ascending interest rates.

Nathan Verning of Oasis Homes - NAHB Finalist for Best in Green Young Professional of the Year Award Nathan Verning of Oasis Construction pulled together extraordinary people and companies to build a high performance home that incorporated a multitude of materials, technologies and components. Many of these were used by him for the first time. Nathan built relationships with dozens of people and companies, primarily members of the HBA and Green Councils, to learn about the many options available to build a high performance home. He then integrated the materials, technologies and components into this high performance NGBS Green Certified home. Nathan is a member of both the HBA of St. Louis and Eastern Missouri and the HBA of Greater Southwest Il and drew on members from both. Nathan documented every step of the process and spent countless hours and resources sharing everything through their website www.oasishomesusa.com On this website, in the Gallery section, are dozens of hours of video completely documenting the build process, including time-lapse videos. The website, in The Project section, features technologies and services. Nathan’s unwavering commitment to use this project as an awareness building and education tool was demonstrated throughout the project. The project culminated in an open house for the industry and the public to learn about the process of building this high performance home. Nathan built the home with 3 primary goals:  Energy Efficiency, accomplished with a tight, well insulated building envelope, earth source heat pump, radiant heat and air conditioning, energy-efficient electric home powered with 20 kw solar and 10 kw wind with battery back up.  Lots of natural light, accomplished with 8 solarpowered ventilating skylights, 2 solar tubes and well placed windows  Great air quality, accomplished with an integrated ERV, no VOC paints and augmented by natural ventilation from ventilating skylights In support of the total comfort, health and safety for the people living in this home, it features dozens of high performance components and systems. This NGBS Green Certified home truly is a home that looks great and performs well. 12 January 2016 Renewed Members Allen Roofing ASAP Contracting & Roofing, LLC Copious Technologies Diel & Forguson Financial Group Garrett E. & Herschel E.

Official attendance for IBS was 59,687, which was 8 percent higher than last year's show. Nearly 1,400 IBS exhibitors filled more than 500,000 square feet of space, including a record-breaking 30,000square- foot outdoor exhibit space. New products focused on home technology and increased energy efficiency: two factors boosting the return of buyers to the new home market. "The packed crowds and positive energy throughout this year's Design & Construction Week are another indication of the residential construction industry's ongoing recovery," said NAHB Chairman Ed Brady, a home builder and developer from Bloomington, Ill. "We reached our goal of creating the 'must attend, must exhibit' week for anyone and everyone in the residential construction industry," said Tom Swartz, chair of the NAHB Convention and Meetings Committee, during his report to the NAHB Board of Directors on the last day of IBS. Visit BuildersShow.com to see photos and videos of the show, as well as more information about the exhibitors, events, educational sessions and award winners.

That being said; if a home owner does not elect lead paint testing on their home renovation project the contractor MUST treat the project as if lead is present and proceed with all the LLRP provisions in place.

Do you need a tool to help with:  Marketing  Selling your new home or remodeling project  Promoting confidence in you & your company  Resolving Customer Concerns  Avoiding misunderstandings  “Nit-Picking” Customers Provide your Customers with an Illinois Quality Assurance Builder Standards Book! $30.00 ea. + shipping & taxes Each 200 page book includes Quality Standards for the most prevalent issues that arise between the Builder/ Remodeler and the Customer. Below is a sample of a common issue in Illinois, exterior concrete cracking. The standard is explained to define the expectations of quality craftsmanship for the Customer. These books will help eliminate problems before the project even begins! Only Members can buy these books! A Measurable Difference The Illinois Quality Assurance Builder Standards provides, new homebuyers and remodeling homeowners a way to measure the quality of the project against an industry approved set of standards. These standards create a series of performance standards that the builders and the homeowners can use to communicate and understand one others' expectations regarding the building or remodeling project. The standards address the most prevalent issues that arise between the builder and the customer before the project, and, most importantly, after the project is completed. All too often it is the undefined expectations that create the majority of the problems encountered in the building and remodeling processes. The standards will help eliminate problems before the project even begins. Sample of an Issue in the QA book. 4.4 Cracks in Exterior Concrete Observation: Exterior concrete - sidewalks, porches, patios, drive- ways, etc. - are cracked. Standard: Some random cracking of exterior concrete will occur and is to be expected. If settling causes cracks that exceed 1/4 inch width or 3/16 inch in vertical displacement, it is considered excessive. Builder’s Responsibility: The builder is responsible for correcting only those cracks that exceed the standard. An appropriate joint or crack filler can be used and is acceptable for a crack up to 1/2 inch in width or vertical displacement. Homeowner’s Responsibility: For aesthetic purposes, smaller cracks may be filled with a waterproof concrete caulk. While this may reduce the appearance of the crack, it should be noted that there will be a color and texture variance between the original concrete and the caulking. Discussion: Driveways, patios, and sidewalks should have expansion and contraction joints which help to control surface cracking. Refer to definition number 5 on page 9. Contained in the 200 pages of the QA Book are 22 section of the most prevalent issues encountered in the construction process. Each section contains numerous sub-sections of specific items. An example is the above 4.4 Cracks in Exterior Concrete. 6100 West Main Street – Maryville, IL 62062 or 618-343-6331 - tbutler@hbaswil.org For more information or to order, contact Tracy Butler @ HBASWIL 4 2016 Lobby Day Tuesday, May 3rd ~ 10am to 7pm 10:00 am Sangamo Club, 227 E Adams, Springfield, IL Guest Speaker, Lunch, Issues Updates 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm Legislative Visits at the Capitol Building & Stratton Building With Senators Clayborne, Haine, Luechtefelt, Manar, McCann & McCarter and Representatives Beiser, Bourne, Bryant, Cavaletto, Costello Jr., Davidsmeyer, Hoffman, Jackson, Kay & Meier, 5:30pm to 7:00 pm Legislative Reception - Sangamo Club, Springfield, IL Where the Senators and Representatives from our territory will stop by to follow up with previous conversations in a relaxed setting with beverages and appetizers.

Ample Ammunition There exists concern among many that should another recession come soon, the government will have few, if any, tools to bring the economy back towards growth and prosperity because interest rates are already near rock bottom. As a result, it is feared that our economy could quite possibly remain in the doldrums for some time. Fortunately, this is simply not true. There remain numerous tools at the disposal of the Fed and of the Congress. Below are some ideas that are surely being considered should more intervention become necessary. To begin, the central bank could once again ramp up its purchases of Treasuries and mortgage-backed securities (MBS) through another round of quantitative easing. But rather than sticking to just Treasuries and MBS, this time the Fed could buy a much broader range of assets, including high-yield bonds, stocks, and even real estate to get asset prices up and markets out of the doldrums. Another step the Fed could take is to push interest rates into negative territory, meaning it would start charging, yes charging, banks to keep money on deposit rather than paying them the current rate of 0.5%. While this seems preposterous, at present central banks in Denmark, Japan, Sweden and Switzerland, along with the European Central Bank are doing precisely this. The aim would be to encourage banks to lend by penalizing them to hold cash. In a similar vein, the Fed could alternatively pay banks to lend money to borrowers. This policy is less harmful than using negative interest rates, as it does not reduce bank profits nor does it encourage banks to charge their depositors to keep deposits on hand to recoup the money paid to the Fed. Paying banks is akin to using a carrot, lower rates; a stick. In addition to the above, the Fed could also promise to keep mortgage rates at or below a 10 certain level for an extended period of time with the explicit aim being to boost lending activity by enabling more people to qualify for a mortgage. This would boost home sales and residential construction activity. Another way to boost spending and inflation is for the government to announce a tax cut and issue bonds to finance it. But, rather than selling the bonds to private investors (which takes money out of circulation), the Fed would buy the bonds. This “Helicopter money” (HM) named in honor of Milton Friedman and which fuses fiscal and monetary policy, is as close as you can get to raining cash from the clear blue sky like manna down on households. While HM is not to be rushed into, in a deep recession or global crisis, it might well make sense. And, if it were coordinated by a group of rich countries, all the better. Lastly, the Congress could surprise us and use fiscal policy and pass structural reforms. Fiscal policy such as large tax cuts or spending on large infrastructure projects would give private sector firms more confidence about future demand and thus make a recovery more likely. Structural reforms could include tax reform and increased deregulation. In short, the government is far from being out of policies that could be employed to jump-start the economy in the event of a recession in the near future. While some policies will undoubtedly work better than others, the key will be to implement a Elliot Eisenberg, Ph.D. is President of GraphsandLaughs, LLC and can be reached at Elliot@graphsandlaughs.net.

HBA Leadership response to NGA decision to move to STL was sent to the Director with the following highlights to share  Pointing out that the STL facility is not in compliance with their Mission while this location will be far less secure.  The ability to place and maintain secure high-speed fiber optic communication potential for damage over a 27.4 mile run  The statement that "construction impacts such as noise generation and construction spending would be about the same regardless of the site chosen", would definitely be a matter of opinion. This based upon whether or not your residence or business is located in close proximity to the construction site. The St. Louis City site is located in an urban setting with homes and business, directly affected by such activity. Whereas the St. Clair County site is located in a rural setting, with little if any homes or businesses affected.  Addressed the idea that millennials like to live and work downtown being misguided.  The economic impact and ability for growth will not be favorable If you would like to see the detailed letter, please contact Tracy Butler at the HBA office. Fairview Heights adopting 2012 Int’l Residential Codes HBA supports the upcoming adoption of the 2012 IRC for Fairview Heights with the following changes:  Deletion of section R313 Automatic Fire Sprinkler Systems  Deletion of section R302.5.1 that would require a self closing door from garage into house  Amendments to section R312.1.1 Exterior guard rails, and R324.7.2.2 Hip roof layouts. Other items that were not amended, per our request, are:  Exterior Wall fire separation because their zoning code already has this distance in place.  Foundation anchorage revisions to clarify language that the municipality Director of Land Use, Planning & Development assured that there would not be any misinterpretation of the language concerns about non-bearing walls used as braced wall lines but this will require that all bolts shall be at least 1/2 inch (12.7mm) diameter.  Lastly our request to delete section R302.13 Fire protection of floors was not accepted so all new home construction that uses floor joist will now require one of the 4 options: - Place an automatic sprinkler system in the floor assembly - Drywall the basement ceiling - Use a fire blocking approved products on the joist - Change home plans to use dimensional lumber Many builders were involved in this process and the HBA would like thank the following for their time and efforts: Matt Lanter - ASAP Development Group, Chris Jones - CA Jones, Inc., Chris Matteo - Fulford Homes Bob Dee Jr. - Homes by Deesign, Joe Lanahan - Joe Lanahan Construction Services, Chris Ferrari - McBride & Son Homes 2018 International Codes in the Works NAHB staff and a number of HBA Members from around the Country have just spent the last two weeks in Louisville attending the 2018 ICC Code Development Hearings. I’m told our national association took positions on 624 of the 1,994 proposed changes to the 2018 International Residential Code (IRC) and International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), supporting 119 and opposing 505, along with the other I-codes and you’re in the neighborhood of 800+ positions they argued for time and time again at the hearing microphones. 12 Our federation had a very successful set of hearings. But, then again, we’ve been in this position before only to see us lose in the last stages of the process. The key activity this time around will be the new online cdpACCESS® voting.

H B OME UILDERS A SSOCIATION NEWSBRIEF The Official Newsletter of the Home Builders Association of Greater Southwest IL The Voice of the Homebuilding and Remodeling Industries in Southwest Illinois. Representing Bond, Calhoun, Clinton, Greene, Jersey, Madison, Monroe, Randolph and St. Clair Counties April 2016 issue www.hbaswi l .org 2016 NATIONAL LEGISLATIVE CONFERENCE HBA Leadership met with Congressman Shimkus & Bost to keep the Home Building industry issues on the top of their priorities. We work hard, take risks and get the job done. We are engaged in our communities, giving back day after day, year after year. We create jobs and build the homes that are the foundation of American family life. Housing drives our nation’s economy. Our industry contributes to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) through private residential investment and spending on housing services, representing roughly 17% of GDP in a typical year. Roughly 3.5 million people – including those who are self-employed – worked in residential construction and remodeling last year. Left to right: Norm Etling; The Village of Shiloh, Congressman John Shimkus, Jeff Schmidt; RLP Development, Tracy Butler; HBA Executive Officer; Mark Fulford; Fulford Construction, Congressman Mike Bost, Kevin Wrigley; LW Contractors, Chuck Daily; Providence Bank, Joe Lanahan; Joe Lanahan Construction Services, Inc., Mark Vogt; Vogt Vogt Builders, Inc., David Padgett; Padgett Building & Remodeling Co., Inc. Reduce burdensome regulations. Most home building and remodeling companies are small businesses. We are saddled with a disproportionate share of costs associated with excessive – and often unnecessary – regulations. regulations at all levels of government account for 25% of the cost of a new single-family home. Lead Paint rule “opt-out” language was further discussed with a strong request to put this disclosure into the rule. Adopt sensible workforce development and immigration policy. Properly conceived, immigration reform will help our industry fill open jobs, boosting our nation’s economy. We asked for their support of HR1147, the Legal Workforce Act, which implements E-Verify nationwide. Address soaring health costs. Enable small businesses to help employees with healthcare costs through the use of Health Reimbursement Arrangements. We asked for their support to Co-sponsor the Small Business Healthcare Relieft Act (HS2911/S1697) which will allow small businesses to continue to offer standalone HRAs to their employees for the payment of healthcare insurance premiums or qualified medical expenses. Without a healthy housing market, the economy can’t flourish. The issues that are important to home builders, remodelers and others in our industry are the same issues that are key to a thriving economy. We’re asking the nation’s lawmakers to: Promote energy efficiency. We need the freedom and flexibility to build energy-efficient homes in the most costeffective way we can. Personal experiences with the Illinois Energy Efficiency Law in place were shared to give real life experiences on these requirements that have been more costly than efficient. Protect middle class tax breaks. The mortgage interest deduction is a key to the financial well-being of the middle class. We also need tax credits to encourage production of housing for less fortunate families. We asked for support of housing’s role in the economy. Eliminating or scaling back these vital housing incentives will also shrink the local tax bade of many communities, causing already cash-strapped state and local government to further cut jobs and essential services. Enact housing finance reform. The nation needs a federal backstop that provides for a reliable and adequate flow of affordable housing credit in all economic and financial conditions.

Enforcement Begins in 2017 for Construction Industry OSHA issued the final silica rule to limit exposure to crystalline silica, which was published in the Federal Register. After a brief initial review, it appears that the final rule contains some of the same problematic provisions that NAHB identified in comments submitted to OSHA during the rulemaking process. What work is covered by the rule? Crystalline silica is found in many common building materials. Popular remodeling jobs like kitchens and baths that involve cutting tile, bricks and other materials containing crystalline silica over the new limit will likely be impacted by this new regulation. Why is this important to Builders & Remodelers? You will be required to use specified engineering controls like water or ventilation and provide respiratory protection for common tasks like trimming tile and cutting bricks under the updated exposure limits of the new silica rule. What are Builders/Remodelers responsibilities in the meantime? The rule goes in to effect on June 23, 2016 but OSHA will not enforce the rule in the construction industry until June 23, 2017. At that time, industry professionals are required to establish work practices that limit worker exposure, have a written exposure control plan and find a competent person to implement it. Employers should prepare to provide workers who must wear a respirator for 30 or more days per year with medical exams and to keep records of workers' silica exposure and medical exams. Where can Members learn more about the required training and equipment? NAHB continues to review the 1,772 page pre-publication copy of the rule. Members can access more information on the potential impact on nahb.org. When and how did NAHB get involved? NAHB raised numerous concerns during the multi-year rulemaking process. Though the agency has made major changes to the construction rule, NAHB remains concerned that the final rule is not technologically and economically feasible for remodelers. This is the value of your membership. NAHB makes your voice heard with regulatory and legislative decision-makers—and ensures that you are informed of the latest actions that could impact you and your business. 2 Friday, May 6th 2016 8:00 am Registration NILO FARMS 15025 IL-111, Brighton, IL (618) 466-0613 “One of our Nations finest hunting & shooting facilities” $105 each registration “loaded” with: 100 Rounds of Sporting Clays, Ammo, Drinks, Lunch and Friendly Competition (Protective eye wear required) ___ $105 per Sport Clay Shooter ___ $250 Snack/Soda Station (limited to 3 ONLY) ___ $200 T-shirt Sponsor ___ $150 Score Sheet Sponsor ___ $100 Station Sponsor ___ 1 Raffle Ticket for $20 ___ 3 Raffle Tickets for $50 Bang for your Buck Opportunities Snack/Soda Cart Sponsor………....…….$250 Signage & opportunity to meet with all shooters T-shirt Sponsor…………………………….$200 Logo on the back of shirts for all shooters Score Sheet Sponsor…………….......…..$150 Logo on all score sheets Station Sponsor…………….….…….. …..$100 Company Name on signage at a station Gun Raffle ($1,000+ value)….……..

There will be no recession in 2016! Despite all the news to the contrary, the US economy is in pretty good shape, better than the financial pundits think. Sure, the stock market has taken a battering of late, exploration and production activity in the oil patch has been declining, and exports are performing poorly, but the rest of the economy is fine. The service sector continues to grow nicely and construction activity continues to increase. Let’s take a closer look at the facts. The recent tumble in equity prices has nothing to do with a slowing economy and is not the precursor of a recession. Rather, the declines are the result of three quite independent factors. First, as the Fed raises interest rates, the value of financial assets must decline. Remember, the Fed initially lowered rates to boost asset prices and stimulate spending. As this process slowly unwinds, the value of equities must decline. Second, corporate profits have been flat for several quarters, and third, even at today’s somewhat lower equity values, P/E ratios remain high by historic standards. As for exports, the US is much less dependent on them than most nations. Exports of goods to China total less than one percent of GDP, while exports of goods to Europe are about 1.5% of GDP. While exports of services such as movies, music and intellectual property add to these totals, they do not vary much with economic conditions. As a result, while a 10% decline in exports certainly hurts manufacturers and their employees and reduces GDP by about 0.2%, it is far from catastrophic in an economy growing by a healthy 2.5%. Regarding falling oil and gas prices, the benefits to the economy are just beginning. Until now, the price declines have resulted in large cutbacks in exploration and production (E&P) activity, as well as related 4 manufacturing, construction and oil services activity that supports oil and gas E&P. The key here is that cheaper energy prices have boosted household incomes by about $130 billion or $1,000/household. While to date most of this money has been socked away, I expect that to change and to see increased consumer spending this year and next as households perceive the recent price declines as somewhat permanent. Most importantly, the rest of the economy is already doing well. Unemployment is at 4.9% and will decline further as the year progresses, and at 4.9%, unemployment is already at one of the lowest levels in decades. Moreover, home sales and prices are up, as is loan demand. In addition, tight labor markets are finally leading to sizable increases in hourly earnings, which will boost household spending further, and inflation, which has been completely dormant for several years, appears to be rising. This is a particularly welcome development given that Japan and Europe continue to fight deflation. Lastly, services, which account for roughly 84% of GDP, and construction activity, which accounts for about 6% of GDP, both of which are almost entirely domestically focused, are in fine shape and growing nicely. During the past 12 months, construction activity increased by 10.4% and services grew by 3%. In short, the parts of the economy that are inwardlycentered are doing well, and the negative impacts of softer growth from abroad are not nearly strong enough to derail our economy. As for the upcoming election, let’s fervently hope that the threats to dramatically raise taxes or increase the deficit do not come to pass.

Private Lunch with Mayor Allen Adomite of Troy Mayor Adomite joined the PWB Council and fellow members for lunch at the Butterfly Patio and shared information about himself and the City of Troy. In the past 15 years, Allen has served in several different capacities in local, state and federal government, as well as work in advocacy-related non-profits. Allen was an Alderman for eight years and had three years as Mayor Pro-Term before being elected as Mayor of Troy, IL, in April 2013. Troy has had many infrastructure improvements around town include reopening of South Main Street which was a $2 million project and used less than 1% of city funding. It has taken 9 years to complete 10 grants totaling $43,615. New construction in 2015 included $9.5 million in new residential construction (41 permits) and $8.2 million in commercial construction. A new senior community “Serenade” featuring homes made of insulated concrete forms will be located alongside Tri Township Park. Up to 60, two-family houses, divided by a common wall, will be built. Each half, estimated at 1,600-1,800 square feet, will be priced at $250,000. Everything is designed to be low maintenance and energy efficient.

Church Street, Collinsville, IL 62234 Come visit the Collinsville Area Vocational Center (CAVC) home in progress and meet the Junior and Senior students who are building it! 1,200 square foot, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom About CAVC: CAVC is a two year, public vocational training center for Junior and Senior high school students. Students are drawn from nine area high schools and attend 2 1/2 hour classes taught by instructors who have many hours of actual work experience in their fields. Each program area is designed to emphasize proper work habits, employable skills, and career opportunities, as well as give students a work environment related to their chosen fields. 7 Recruit the next generation: The economy is on an upward spiral and the building industry is having a hard time finding enough skilled workers to fill key positions. As demand continues to rise the industry will face an increase of worker shortage. A career in construction is a successful and profitable profession that doesn't require a 4 year college degree. This is the perfect opportunity for our builder/remodeler members to discuss a career in construction to the next generation who already have interest in the industry and has hands on experience!

Trash Heap Can Trash Your Bottom Line! In a recent decision, an Illinois Appellate Court upheld a ruling from the Illinois Pollution Control Board that imposed a $7,500 fine on an Illinois contractor cited for ( I ) causing or allowing “open dumping” of waste that resulted in litter; ( ii ) causing or allowing “open dumping” of waste that resulted in deposition of construction or demolition debris; and ( iii) causing or allowing accumulation of water in used or waste tires. The “open dumping” was a pile of debris (boards, PVC pipe pieces, silt fence, etc.) removed from work sites and “dumped” outdoors, on the ground, at the contractor’s property, by returning work crews. The contractor indicated that its employees piled the materials there, until there was enough accumulated to make it worthwhile to drive it to the landfill. This practice garnered the contractor citations for both causing or allowing litter and deposition of construction debris. The tires with accumulated water were 2 tires that had been removed from the contractor’s equipment; laid on their sides; and accumulated rain water. The contractor indicated that the tires had been retained to be used for other purposes, such as filling them with concrete to create a base for work-site light poles. The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency field workers did not believe that explanation, as they saw no evidence of use for light poles. IEPA fined the contractor $7,500 for the three concurrent violations of its regulations; and both the Pollution Control Board and the Appellate Court have upheld the fine. HBA has been advised that IEPA intends to increase its enforcement and fines relating to the construction industry. This case will provide precedent that will allow IEPA to do exactly that. If your company currently accumulates wastes and/or debris on the ground, now is a good time to change that practice. If you have any questions about how environmental regulations would apply to any of your practices, you should speak with your attorney, before you are visited by IEPA.

Padgett Building & Remodeling R.P. Lumber Thermo-Door Co. Trost Plastics 6 Woods Basement Systems No Housing Bubble House prices are once again regularly in the news and have been rising for 43 straight months. In cities such as Boston, Denver and San Francisco, prices today are higher than they were during the peak of the housing boom. In other cities, while prices have not regained the ground they lost during the housing bust, they are rising smartly and are not far off the peak prices of last decade. That said, a housing bubble does not appear to be forming, and even if one is on the horizon, it certainly is not being credit-fueled, and thus is far less dangerous than what we recently experienced. While in a few cities home prices are at or above the highs of the housing boom, on average, home prices are still well below their previous peaks. Depending upon the house price index used, sales prices are currently 5% to 10% below their 2006 peaks, and at levels first observed in early to middle 2005, six to 12 months before they peaked. Moreover, after adjusting for inflation, house prices are about 20% off their all-time highs. At the current rate of house price appreciation, it will take another four years for inflation-adjusted house prices to fully regain their 2006 levels. Despite the rhetoric, house prices are not nearly as high as they are being made out to be. In addition, back in 2006, housing affordability was dismal. At that time, a family earning the median income barely had enough income to qualify for a conventional conforming mortgage for the US median-priced home. Today, that same household has almost 170% of the income needed to qualify for the median-priced US home. This is because house prices are lower and interest rates are substantially lower than they were almost a decade ago. 7 Two esoteric but very important financial measures reinforce the conclusions above. Both the price-torent ratio and the mortgage debt-to-GDP ratio have fallen precipitously. The price-to-rent ratio is similar to the price-to-earnings ratio for equities, and the higher it is, the more homebuyers are willing to pay up front to receive a flow of future rent payments. At the peak, the price-to-rent ratio was easily 50% above what it averaged between 1983 and 2000. Today it is about 10% above the 1983 to 2000 average level, and almost 30% below the 2006 peak. The ratio of all debt (most of which is mortgage debt) to GDP has fallen from 100% of GDP to 80% of GDP. Moreover, despite the recent run up in house prices, the mortgage debt-to GDP ratio has continued to decline. This reflects a return to prudent lending standards and reduced household leverage. Collectively the improvement in these ratios strongly suggest that we are not in the midst of a credit-induced lending bubble. In addition, housing starts remain about half of what they were during the prior peak. This means that our economy is far less dependent on residential construction activity than it was then. To review, while house prices are up, inflationadjusted prices are still years away from their peak levels. In addition, affordability remains high and both the price-to-rent and mortgage debt-to-GDP ratios are much lower than they were. These four indicators collectively indicate that there is probably no housing bubble, and even if there is one, it is not the result of increased household leverage, which is what primarily precipitated the last housing bust.

The National Association of Home Builders recently announced the winners of the Best in American Living Awards (BALA) – a prestigious awards program recognizing excellence in designs that will influence the entire residential building industry. Award recipients are lauded as the nation’s most creative and inventive builders, remodelers, architects, developers, land planners and interior designers. Below are some of the newest trends in home design that buyers will see in the coming months and years, based on submissions from this year’s BALA winners. Some of these elements are sure to inspire your next design project. Intimate Outdoor Spaces. Many single-family custom and production homes include intimate outdoor gathering spaces, complete with outdoor fireplaces or fire pits and cozy seating. These spaces are geared toward smaller gatherings, instead of the extended family-size backyards of the past. Mid-Century Modern Detailing. Mid-century modern is now 21st century chic in furniture, elevation design and detailing. Particularly in the western United States, this style has become increasingly popular. Indoor-Outdoor Convergence. What was once a distinct line between two living areas – indoor and outdoor – has been replaced by floor-to-ceiling retractable glass walls and screens. Families can both visually and physically move between these areas. Troughs and Spouts. Outdoor tables with open, trough-like water channels add interest, often culminating in a delicate waterfall off the edge of the table into a pool or water feature below. Interior Board and Batten. More often used as exterior cladding, board and batten is now being featured inside a large number of homes as well. This technique adds a threedimensional layer to interior finishes and provides an interesting alternative to paint and wallpaper. 10 Copper Bathtubs. These are a popular bathroom feature in several awardwinning homes. Copper tubs are a striking addition in any home, from rustic to modern to traditional. White with Exotic or Repurposed Wood Accents. Many winning interiors feature stark, modern white paired with rich wood accents, a striking combination in flooring, ceilings and cabinets. Modern Industrial Accents. Making its strongest appearance in multifamily projects, this trend combines sleek lighting and furniture with the brick, glass and steel elements of a building’s shell and skeleton. Vibrant pops of color offset the cooler color palette of metals and whites. Barn Doors. Barn doors are appearing everywhere, from kitchens to mudrooms to closets. These offer an alternative to traditional left- or righthung doors and become a design feature of the home, unlike pocket doors that tuck away. Intricate Stairways. Stairways have become more prominent and sophisticated. Designers increasingly feature curving glass railings, detailed iron newel posts, unique stair accent walls, glass treads and intricate tile work. Low-Impact Design. Many BALA winners and entrants included sustainable and green features in their designs, including permeable pavers, rain gardens and landscaping with native species. Waterfall Islands. Still trending are waterfall-edged islands, in which the kitchen bar is inset into the cabinetry rather than extended beyond it. These islands – whether made of wood, granite or marble – emphasize clean, modern lines. 11

2015 Illinois Energy Conservation Code ~ Effective January 1, 2016 The following information provides Residential Building Revisions in Illinois to the 2015 Int’l Energy Conservation Code that are enforced as the Illinois Energy Conservation Code Get ready, the new Illinois Energy Conservation Code has been approved and the effective date is January 1, 2016. Unlike the 2009 and 2012 code which, combined, raised the cost of construction in Illinois by an average of $16,000 per unit, HBAI welcomes the 2015 code as it brings new options to builders and minimizes construction cost increases. For the first time since 2009, NAHB helped stop the regulatory binge at the International Code Council, while HBAI did the same with the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (IDCEO). With two members now sitting on the Illinois Energy Code Advisory Council (IECAC), HBAI defeated all attempts by IDCEO to stay with the 2012 code. Later in the year and leading all the way up to late November, HBAI also checked state regulators from erasing and delaying sensible changes in the 2015 code. Even after final approval of the code by the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (JCAR), a final ditch effort was made in late November by IDCEO officials and consultants to delay enactment of the code for six months, and reverse a new option to use the Home Energy Rating System (HERS) rating system. But all of that was turned back by builders, code officials, engineers, and architects serving on the IECAC. NAHB advised HBAI early this year to embrace the new code as long as certain changes in the code were incorporated. Don Surrena, Program Manager for the Energy Efficiency Construction Department at NAHB, drew a road map for HBAI that was successfully used by our appointees to the IECAC; Jason Huelsman and Allen Drewes. HBAI would like to thank the members of the IECAC who worked long and hard over the past several months to create a new code that is a great improvement over the previous code. A special Home Builder thanks to Lisa Mattingly, Administrator for Professional Services with the Illinois Capital Development Board, for her leadership and extensive knowledge on the application of building codes within the residential and commercial construction industries. Finally, did you know, whether a community enforces the Illinois Energy Conservation Code or not, Builders in Illinois are responsible for building to this statewide set of standards. Failure to do so could result in a civil action against a builder by the home owner resulting in fines and payment to upgrade to the standards set forth at the time of construction. Want to know more about the ECC? Contact Don Surrena, Program Manager, Energy Efficiency, NAHB, (202) 266-8574, or dsurrena@nahb.org. 6 Important Compliance Changes Include:  The Energy Rating Index (ERI) has been added as a third option for compliance. RESNET and the ICC now offer a HERS Index Video to explain how it works. The video is posted at: https:// www.youtube.com/watch? v=y1s1s7TEwOvVA. IDCEO opposed this vehemently and refuses to include this in their state funded instruction seminars for builders and code officials.  Basement walls associated with conditioned basements shall have two options for required insulation: 1. Insulation from the top of the basement wall down to 10 feet below grade or to within six inches of the basement floor, whichever is less with an R-Value of 10/13 minimum; 2. Insulation from top of the basement down to 4 feet below grade when the basement wall R-Value is at least 15/19.  Air Leakage Rates shall be tested by a third party and verified as having an air leakage rate not exceeding five air exchanges per hour (ACH) in Climate Zones 4 and 5. The requirement for three air exchanges per hour was advocated by IDCEO. Further details of each 2015 Illinois ECC change are available at the HBA Office 7

SPRINGFIELD - On Jan. 1, 2016, 237 new laws go into effect in Illinois, including measures that impact fighting crime, government transparency, business, hunting, health, and family. Animals  Humane Care for Animals (SB 125/PA 99-0311): States that, “No owner of a dog or cat may expose the dog or cat in a manner that places the dog or cat in a lifethreatening situation for a prolonged period of time in extreme heat or cold conditions.” Business  Illinois continues to rank near the bottom when it comes to being a business-friendly state. In 2015, however, Sen. Sue Rezin led the effort in one of the very few pro-growth, pro-jobs business reforms passed by the General Assembly during the spring session. SB 1672/PA 99-0463 will allow businesses to file and receive a permit directly from the state, instead of going through the federal government. That will speed up the application time and provide for more certainty for job creators.  Duplicative Small Business Regulations (HB 3887/PA 99-0370): Requires state agencies to examine their rules, administrative regulations, and permitting processes as they pertain to small businesses in order to identify those rules, regulations, and processes that are unreasonable, unduly burdensome, duplicative, or onerous to small businesses.  Equal Pay Act Changes (HB 3619/PA 99-0418): Provides that the Act applies to all employers (currently only employers with four or more employees). Provides that any violation of the Act will subject employers to a civil penalties. Sets different penalty structures for employees with fewer than four employees and those with four or more employees. Committing public policy violations will subject the employer to a civil penalty not to exceed $5,000.  Minimum Wage Employers Negotiations (SB 38/PA 99-0017 – Sen. Pamela Althoff): An initiative of the Illinois FOP Labor Council that amends the Minimum Wage Law by allowing a collective bargaining unit to negotiate and contractually exempt themselves from the hourly wage requirements imposed by the Act. Instead, the union can agree to an alternate shift schedule as allowed under federal law.  Residential Mortgage License Act Changes (HB 3369/PA 99-0015 – Sen. Sue Rezin): Amends the Residential Mortgage License Act to improve the efficiency and include modern best practices in the regulation of the Act.  Title Insurance Fee (HB 3910/PA 99-0104): Provides that each title insurance company fee of $3 per policy is paid by the agent or agent’s parent company. Consumers  Landlords Accumulated Interest (HB 1319/PA 99-0253): Provides that the lessor shall, within 30 days after the end of each 12-month rental period, pay to the lessee any interest that has accumulated to an amount of $5 or more, unless the lessee is in default under the terms of the lease. All accumulated interest that remains unpaid, regardless of the amount, must be paid over to the lessee upon termination of the tenancy. 10 Jan. 1, 2016 new laws continued.. Consumers continued..  Mechanics Liens: Substitution of Bond (HB 2635/PA 99-0178): Amends the Mechanic’s Lien Act to establish a process for a property owner to substitute a surety bond for a mechanic’s lien on the property, thus enabling the property owner to sell or refinance the property. Hunting  Bobcat Hunting (HB 352/PA 99-0033 – Sen. Sam McCann): Amends the Wildlife Code to allow bobcat hunting in Illinois from Nov. 1 to Feb. 15.  Youth Hunting License Age (HB 3234/PA 99-0307 – Sen. Chapin Rose): Raises age cap for youth hunting licenses from 16 to 18. Law Enforcement DUI-related Safety Provisions (SB 627/PA 99-0467): Makes several recommendations based on the Traffic Safety Advisory Committee. Changes include the following:  Requires certain individuals suspected of consuming alcohol to sign the written warning from law enforcement.  Removes “hard time” provisions which currently prohibit driving relief for DUI offenders, and instead allow offenders to apply for a Monitoring Device Driving Permit or Restricted Driving Permit, with a Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device.  Requires any offender with two+ DUI or reckless homicide convictions to install a BAIID as a condition of a Restricted Driving Permit.  Requires a BAIID, as a condition of a RDP, if the offender is convicted of DUI involving death, great bodily harm or permanent disability or disfigurement to another. DUI Interlock Device Extension (HB 3533/PA 99-0296 – Sen. Pam Althoff): Requires ignition interlock devices for a minimum of five years on all vehicles owned by a person who has been convicted of a second or subsequent DUI offense. State Government and Insurance  Home Equity Districts (HB 3193/PA 99-0037): Amends the Home Equity Assurance Act to permit Home Equity Districts to create Low Interest Home Improvement loan programs through resolution of their commission.  Reverse Mortgage Act (SB 1440/PA 99-0331): Creates the Reverse Mortgage Act by rewriting the entire reverse mortgage law. Consolidates duplicative and sometime conflicting state laws regarding reverse mortgages.  State Pie (HB 208/PA 99-0364 – Sen. Bill Brady): Designates pumpkin pie as the official state pie of Illinois. 11

For the first time ever, the Home Builders Association of Illinois (HBAI) and the the Springfield Area Home Builders Association (SAHBA) combined their installation of officers ceremonies. The event was held Tuesday, December 8th and was performed by Ed Brady of Brady Homes, who will become President of the National Association of Home Builders in January. Not only does this make history, but also shows how both associations are working together for the advancement of the home building industry. At the banquet, Paul Phillips, 2015 HBAI President, presented a Presidential Citation for exceptional work within the industry to HBASWIL member Jason Huelsman with New Tradition Homes and to Tracy Butler, EO of HBA of Greater Southwest IL. Followed by the installation of the 2016 HBAI Senior officers & Executive Committee (pictured below): President: Dean Graven – Legacy Homes of Illinois with Springfield Area HBA Senior Vice President: Allen Drewes – Old Towne Custom Builders with Northern Illinois HBA 1st Vice President: Debbie Miller – Gary Johnston Plastering & Drywall, Inc. with Northern Illinois HBA 2nd Vice President: Rosie Millen – Heritage Home Décor with Northern Illinois HBA Secretary: Mark Vogt – Vogt Builders, Inc. with HBA Greater Southwest Illinois Treasurer: Pat Franz – Clairmont, LTD with Southwest Suburban HBA Immediate Past President: Paul Phillips – Armstrong Construction with HBA East Central Illinois Area 9 Chairman: Mike Nagel – MAW Chicago LLC with HBA Greater Chicago State Rep. to NAHB: Kevin Chaffin – Riverview Builders, Inc. with Southwest Suburban HBA NAHB Builder Director: Allen Drewes – Old Towne Custom Builders with Northern Illinois HBA NAHB Associate Director: Debbie Miller – Gary Johnston Plastering & Drywall, Inc. with Northern Illinois NAHB PAC Trustee: Mike Nagel – MAW Chicago LLC with HBA Greater Chicago; Paul Phillips – Armstrong Construction with HBA East Central Illinois; Scott Sevon – MAW Chicago LLC with HBA Greater Chicago 12 December 2015 Renewed Members Ameren Illinois Barnes Properties, Inc.

16 Economic Forecast for 2016: Slightly Better Than 2015 Looking at 2016, the domestic economic landscape looks solid, albeit unspectacular. The unemployment rate should continue falling, house prices are likely to rise by 5%, and the economy will be led almost entirely by the continuing improvement in household balance sheets, and in conjunction with increased employment and slightly faster wage growth. Government spending will be slightly higher in 2016 (but not enough to matter), capital expenditures by firms will remain weak, and exports will continue to suffer due to the strong US dollar. The most serious domestic problem is weak inflation, and it should begin to increase. Despite continuing poor global economic growth, the American economy will not weaken, but is also unlikely to strengthen much. 2016 FORECAST With this in mind, I expect full-year 2016 GDP to come in at 2.4%, slightly higher than the expected 2.2% GDP growth experienced in 2015. New housing starts should increase by about 12%, with total starts coming in at 1.25 million. Single-family starts will likely total 830,000, up from 710,000, while multifamily starts should hit 410,000, up from 400,000. New and existing home sales should rise by about 4% and end the year at 6.0 million, with mortgage purchase volume advancing by $60 billion and refinance activity falling by about $250 billion. Housing inventories should jump by about 150,000 units, to 5.5 months of inventory, up from 5.0 months now. Given the continued improving labor market, expect net new monthly job growth to average 185,000/ month, which while down from 205,000/month in 2015, is excellent given the shrinking size of the working age population. As a result, the unemployment rate should fall from 5.0% today to between 4.6% and 4.8% by year end and possibly lower, depending upon the behavior of the labor force participation rate (LFPR). If the LFPR rises, and that would be good, unemployment may end the year as high as 4.8%, but if the LFPR continues to fall, an unemployment rate of 4.6% or even 4.5% is distinctly possible. As for inflation, headline inflation will noticeably increase while core inflation (which excludes food and energy) edges up only slightly. Inflation should rise because energy and commodity prices are not likely to fall further and the dollar is unlikely to continue strengthening. As a result, the downward pressure these forces have exerted on headline inflation will cease and headline inflation, now at 0.3%, should move towards the core rate which is now at 1.3% and will probably rise to 1.7% by year end, which is still below the Fed target of 2%. As a result, the Federal Reserve will have the luxury of time to slowly raise the federal funds rate from where it is now, between 0.25% and 0.50%, to between 1.00% and 1.25% by year end, with a rate increase coming every three to four months. As a result of slightly faster GDP growth and falling unemployment in 2016, 10-year Treasuries will end the year at 2.75% and 30-year mortgage rates will probably hover around 4.5% as the yield curve flattens due to faster rising short-term rates. But slightly easing credit conditions and rising consumer spending due to improving employment numbers and wages will keep the economy and housing market on track despite mildly higher interest rates. Finally, I put the chances of a recession in 2016 at 15% to 20%. So look forward to steady economic activity in 2016 and fear not slowly ascending interest rates.

Page 4 2016 HBA Homeowners’ Resource Guide WHY A CODE OF ETHICS? It is a sure way for you to handicap y our choice of a Builder or Remodeler When a homeowner does business with a member of the Home Builders Association of Greater Southwest Illinois, there are many benefits. Each member subscribes to a code of ethics. That means the builder, remodeler or associate member is not just doing a job, but also honoring a commitment to the customer, the community, the nation and colleagues in the industry. Each assumes his or her responsibility as a member and supports other members of the local Home Builders Association, the statewide Home Builders Association of Illinois and the National Association of Home Builders. Specifically, members are dedicated to honesty, high standards and fair dealing. Their goal is that every home purchaser receives the greatest value for every dollar. Members believe that homeownership should be within the reach of every family. They are dedicated to building homes that are well designed, well constructed and well located in attractive communities. Members also are forward looking, encouraging research into new materials, techniques and equipment that may improve home building and home financing. The association and its members are committed to support sound legislative proposals affecting home construction and home ownership, and are firmly committed to the principle that homes should be built by balancing affordability and regulation. Members also share information with the public on legislation and regulation that may impact home ownership, affordability and other issues of importance to local communities. Members are committed to following all legal requirements for the industry. The code of ethics establishes obligations that may be higher than mandated by state, local and federal law.

Page 8 2016 HBA Homeowners’ Resource Guide In good times or bad, there is one constant: Homeownership remains the American Dream for millions of families. And there are many reasons why, both economic and emotional. Most Americans consider homeownership to be their single best long-term investment and a primary source of their wealth and financial security. Generations of families have counted on and used the equity in their homes for their children’s education, their own retirement and other milestone expenses. Individual household budgets are helped by tax incentives that are designed to make owning a home more affordable. Deductions for mortgage interest and property taxes can result in thousands of dollars of tax savings, especially in the early years of the mortgage when interest makes up most of the payment. Home owners save nearly $100 billion annually on mortgage interest and property deductions alone. And when home owners sell their primary residence, they get an enormous tax break. A couple who owns and lives in their home for two years and then decides to sell can keep up to $500,000 of the profit tax-free, and a single owner can keep $250,000. A healthy housing industry means more jobs and a stronger U.S. economy. In fact, fully 15 percent of the U.S. economy relies on housing. Most of the products used in home construction and remodeling are manufactured in the United States. Constructing 100 new homes creates more than 300 full-time jobs, $23.1 million in wage and business income and $8.9 million in federal, state and local tax revenue. New home owners spend money on decorations and furnishings, to enhance the landscaping and to become members of the community by patronizing local businesses and service providers. Homeownership builds stronger communities, provides a solid foundation for family and personal achievement and improves the quality of life for millions of people. The Bipartisan Policy Center's Housing Commission has said that homeownership can "produce powerful economic, social, and civic benefits that serve the individual home owner, the larger community and the nation." To learn more about homeownership, contact the Home Builders Association of Greater Southwest Illinois by visiting www.hbaswil.org or call 618-343-6331. Yet a home is so much more than an investment. In good times and in bad, the opportunity to own a home has been a cherished ideal and a source of pride, accomplishment, social stability and peace of mind. Homeownership strengthens communities as well as families. Home building increases the property tax base that supports local schools and communities. When a family owns their home, it is an asset that has a direct impact on their financial security and future. People are more likely to take care of things they own so they remain valuable. And a home’s value is determined by how well it is maintained as well as by the condition of the neighborhood it is located in. www.hbaswil.org Page 9

Page 18 2016 HBA Homeowners’ Resource Guide Easy Ways to Increase Your Home’s Efficiency Green building, where new homes are built using materials that conserve energy and environmental resources, is one of the fastest-growing segments of the home building industry today. But for the owners of the millions of existing homes in the United States, remodeling is the only way to incorporate green. The following suggestions can increase your home’s efficiency, decrease costs, and take advantage of the other benefits that green offers: 1. Install maximum insulation. Forty percent of the energy consumed in a typical house goes to heating and cooling. Adding insulation is an easy way to increase efficiency. Insulation is rated by its ability to resist heat flow, known as “R-value.” The higher the R-value, the more effectively the insulation resists heat flow. Adding insulation will help save energy costs, increase comfort by better controlling temperature, and improve indoor air quality by eliminating gaps through which dirt, dust, and other impurities can enter. 2. Install high-efficiency windows. Ordinary window glass transmits ultraviolet heat rays from the sun, which can increase your air conditioning bill dramatically. ENERGY STAR windows can help control this effect. These windows may have two or more panes of glass, warm-edge spacers between the panes, improved framing materials, and microscopically thin metal or metallic oxide layers deposited on windows to reduce radiative heat flow. 3. Purchase ENERGY STAR-rated appliances. ENERGY STAR -rated appliances, ranging from dishwashers and refrigerators to computers and televisions, meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and U.S. Department of Energy. Qualified refrigerators, dishwashers and vent fans incorporate advanced technologies that use 10 to 50 percent less energy and water than standard models, more than making up for the slightly higher cost of these products. 4. Upgrade to an ENERGY STAR-rated or tankless water heater. Tankless water heaters provide hot water on demand at a preset temperature rather than storing it. Replacing an electric water heater with a solar model can reduce costs by up to 80 percent a year. Over its 20-year lifespan a solar heater will prevent more than 50 tons of carbon dioxide emissions. A low-cost option is to wrap insulation around your heater, which can reduce standby heat loss by 25 to 45 percent. 5. Purchase the highest efficiency HVAC system you can afford. Over a ten year period, the average home owner spends more than $10,000 for heating and cooling. Installing high efficiency HVAC equipment can reduce costs on average by 10 to 30 percent over minimum efficiency equipment. It also can improve home comfort with better heating and cooling and a quieter operation, and often features higher quality components that result in longer equipment life.

Page 22 2016 HBA Homeowners’ Resource Guide Weigh Your Options Before a Do-it-Yourself Remodel While most professional remodelers understand that home owners will do some of their own home repairs or small renovations, after repairing many a DIY gone awry they overwhelmingly believe that many jobs should be left to the pros. The desire among home owners to tackle repair and remodeling projects has risen. Before attempting to create a gorgeous bathroom, consider the following before sinking your resources into the project. Safety Without the proper training and preparation, a DIYer can and has landed in the emergency room. Unfamiliarity with new tools and techniques can lead to lifethreatening accidents. Follow product directions and safety procedures and always use proper safety equipment. A good rule of thumb for any home owner is to avoid projects that require a license. Veteran remodelers advise against doing electrical or plumbing work on your own and avoid making structural changes to walls, roofs and floors. You run the risk of compromising the structural integrity of your home and having a large hole in your roof or floor. Leave this work in the hands of professionals with the proper training. Time DIYers often tackle larger projects but if something goes wrong, there is no one to hold to the deadline. Hiring a professional will ensure that you have a contract with a completion date and that the remodeler will bring in whatever help is necessary to get the job finished on time. If timing is a priority for your weekend warrior, call a professional remodeler to get your project completed. Cost Purchasing new tools is exciting but consider the price of all the specialty tools used for a one-time project when they are sitting untouched in your garage for a few years. There are some home projects that professional remodelers believe can be tackled by determined DIYers such as interior painting, caulking, changing door knobs and cabinet pulls, and some aesthetic work (depending on skill level) such as installing crown molding. DIY projects should be fun and suit your skill level. If they’re not, then consider hiring a professional.

Page 30 2016 HBA Homeowners’ Resource Guide Financing Your New Home Buying your a house can be very exciting. But financing your home purchase can be a daunting experience. In both cases, knowledge is power, and if you do your research and shop carefully, you will have a successful home-buying experience. Advance preparation is key when getting ready to buy a home. You need to decide how much to spend on your home and which type of mortgage will work best for you, as well as understand the settlement process. Before you visit a sales office, model home or open house, you should take advantage of the many sources that can help you get prepared, and take some steps to ensure you’re in the best possible financial situation: Figure out what you can comfortably pay on a monthly basis. Write down all your monthly expenses including loan payments, utilities, insurance, credit cards and don’t forget food, clothing and entertainment expenditures. When determining the monthly payment you can afford, remember that in addition to the monthly principal and interest, you will also be paying into escrows for property taxes, hazard insurance and possibly mortgage insurance or a home owners or condominium association assessment. Many real estate-focused websites have mortgage calculators that are a great way to figure out what your monthly payments would be based on current interest rates and down payment amounts. Pay down your debts. Debt that you carry on your credit cards will limit the amount of a loan a lender will be willing to give you. Lenders typically want to see a total debt service ratio that is less than 40 percent of your monthly income. Attend a home buying seminar or talk to a credit counselor who does not work for a lender. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) offers free housing counseling and seminars; visit www.hud.gov or call HUD's interactive voice system at: (800) 569-4287 for more information. HUD also has a booklet on its site called “Buying Your Home: Settlement Costs and Helpful Information.” It describes the home buying and settlement process and explains most of the expenses you will encounter. It is free and most lenders are required to provide their loan applicants with a copy of this document under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA). When you have done your research, visit a lender and find out what loans would be available to you. Then, get pre-approved. This will tell you how much money the lender is willing to loan you, and you will know what price range you should be shopping in. Pre-approval also enables you to quickly make an offer when you find a home, and is attractive to sellers who are considering multiple offers. A lender’s pre -approval would still be subject to a final verification of your credit and a satisfactory appraisal. Once you have figured out the best way to finance your new home, get out there and go find it!

J The only people who benefit when a house is built are the family members who get to live there, and the builder who constructed and sold the home, right? Wrong. The positive impact of new residential construction is far-reaching, bringing benefits to families, businesses and services throughout a community immediately, as well as for years to come. According to economists at the National Association of Home Builders, the oneyear estimated local impacts of building 100 single-family homes in a typical metro area include $28.7 million in local income, $3.6 million in taxes and other local government revenue, and 394 local jobs. But what does that economic impact mean in the real, day-to-day lives of community residents? Just think about it. When a family moves to a community and buys a new house, they will likely shop at local stores to buy furniture and accessories to decorate the home. They will fill their car’s gas tank at y By Chris Jones with C.A. Jones, Inc. ~ President, Home Builders Association of Greater Southwest IL local gas stations so they can get to the stores, have local mechanics work on the car when it breaks down or needs the oil changed, or buy a new car at a local dealer when it’s time to replace the old one. The family may need to hire local companies for regular services to maintain their home, such as landscaping, house cleaning, pet sitters or pool upkeep. The children will enroll in local schools. This increases enrollment, meaning more teachers, janitors, cafeteria workers and other school support staff will need to be hired. All of this economic activity puts income into the pockets of local business owners and their families, who can then afford to go out and spend money themselves, which recycles even more money into the community’s economy. The new family also pays local and state taxes. These tax revenues help pay for a wide range of government services, including school teachers, police departments, refuse collection, parks maintenance and road repairs. Over the long term, as the families who move into new homes become part of th community, their positive impact continues. NAHB estimates that those 100 new homes also provide the community with additional, annuallyrecurring impacts of $4.1 million in loc income, $1 million in taxes and other revenue for local governments, and 69 local jobs. Families who buy a newly built home enjoy benefits including safety, amenitie energy efficiency and floor plans to fit a modern lifestyle. But the advantages of new homes extend far beyond the buyer and the builders - residential constructio has a positive, direct impact on the loca community for years.

Families continue to seek and achieve the American Dream of homeownership and take their place among the more than 74 million Americans that own a home. Home appreciation over the long term builds financial security for a family’s future. But most home owners don’t have to wait for the home’s value to increase to realize the financial benefits. Right from the first year, the majority of home owners are able to annually deduct the mortgage interest and property taxes they paid off their taxable income. This can mean thousands of dollars saved off a family’s tax bill every year. When the family sells the home, the capital gains exclusion exempts up to $250,000 of the profit ($500,000 for married couples) from taxes. But the value of homeownership can be much more than financial. Owning a home can often be a lifestyle improvement, enabling a family to enjoy a neighborhood, features and other amenities that suit their present and future day-to-day activities. Newly-constructed houses deliver energy efficiency, storage space, well-designed floor plans, and the latest technologies in electrical systems and appliances. Rooms are often spacious, with high ceilings and lots of windows to let in light. A new home also comes with the peace of mind of little maintenance needed and a warranty against defects. Existing homes offer neighborhoods whose character has already been established, mature landscaping with tall trees, and an existing selection of businesses and services for the home owner to use. If the home isn’t already a great fit to the buyers’ taste, it can be renovated to reflect the new owners’ needs and preferences. Homeownership lets families build connections. Owners take pride in their homes, and develop friendships with other people who also own homes and care about the neighborhood. A home is a place where families make a sanctuary that feels comfort30+ Years of Local Service Roofing & Construction Storm Damage Experts & FREE Estimates (618) 233-6558 pkdependable.com R&R SERVICES QUALITY WORK • GREAT PRICES Free Architectural Upgrade on any shingle job FREE ESTIMATES 257-8644 • Custom Sunrooms • Windows • Decks • Roofing • Siding • Patio Covers • Remodeling • Basement Finishing Member of BBB BEFORE Use Your Stonecraft Bucks!

Are you wondering what to do with that old refrigerator that still runs but is way past its prime? Ameren can help residential customers with these and other energy-related concerns through its Act On Energy Programs. These programs can provide detailed recommendations specifically tailored to your home. Some of the programs actually include financial incentives to customers who opt to participate. Residential customers can learn more about Ameren’s programs and how they can take advantage of the available assistance by visiting Ameren’s booth at the Home Show, according to Ameren energy efficiency advisor Agnes Mrozowski. Two of the Ameren’s most popular programs for residential customers are the Home Energy Audit and Refrigerator Recycling. Home Energy Audit With the Home Energy Audit, well-trained personnel will complete a thorough inspection of your home to assess where it is at in terms of energy efficiency, she explained. They look for common problems like drafts, inconsistent temperatures and heating and cooling issues that can result in wasted energy and higher utility bills. Once the assessment has been completed, the Home Energy Auditor will make recommendations on how to improve your home’s energy efficiency. These recommendations will also include the names of area contractors who are registered the program and well versed on program requirements in order for customers to be eligible for available incentives that can reduce their out-of-pocket costs to implement energy-saving changes. Customers who have taken advantage of the Home Energy Audit and followed recommendations have reported an average of 20 percent or more savings on energy bills as well as greater comfort in their homes and an increase in their homes’ longterm value. Refrigerator Recycling For anyone with a working refrigerator or freezer from the 1970s, 1980s or 1990s, Ameren’s refrigerator recycling program is a win-win-win, Mrozowski stressed. Ameren will provide a $50 rebate to customers turning in refrigerators or freezers meeting program guidelines, and customers don’t even have to do any heavy lifting since Ameren provides free pickup and haul away service on these appliances. Customers can also expect to see ongoing utility savings when they replace their old refrigerators with new ones since newer models are much more energy efficient, she pointed out. This program does not have income qualifications. However, to qualify for the rebate, the appliances must have been originally manufactured within the listed time frame and need to still be in working order. Ameren’s recycling facility takes these old appliances and gives them new life by reclaiming metal, glass and plastic parts from them. These are then recycled into new products. Other programs Ameren also has other programs available to residential customers. In addition to visiting Ameren’s booth at this year’s Home Show, those interested can go online to www.actonenergy.com.

Page 16 Prepared by the News-Democrat Advertising Department Sunday, February 21, 2016 What are the Best Ways to Add Value to Your Home? By: Jeff Schmidt, RLP Development President, Home Builders Association of Greater Southwest Illinois Which home remodeling projects are the best ones for those looking for a solid return on their investment — and higher profits come selling day? Not all home remodeling projects are equal. Here are some top ways to add value to your home: A Home Office Remodel Home offices are becoming less of a luxury and more of a necessity, with more people telecommuting. The number of Americans that work from home is in the millions, and that number has continued to grow every year. Telecommuting has become a viable solution for many in the working world. Making sure that your home has a state-of-the-art space for potential teleworkers is a surefire way to increase your home’s value. Replace the Roof. The roof is one of the first impressions people have of a home. Make sure yours passes the test by replacing an old roof. You can also change the character of your home by looking into architecturally styled roofing tiles. Landscape Your Yard. Along the same lines of thinking as the roof, landscaping can give a great – or not so great – first impression. Backyard landscaping can transform ordinary spaces into incredible entertaining areas by including elegant water features and lush plants. Replace Old Windows. Thirty percent of a home’s energy is lost through its windows. Replacing old windows with energyefficient ones signals to home buyers that you really of the care about the house and it reflects on the quality of the house as a whole. Plus, who doesn’t like to save money on energy bills? Remodel Your Basement. Look at space you already have. Do you have unused space that serves as a black hole for all things without a home? Try remodeling your basement. Remodeled basements can make excellent game rooms or guest suites, adding value to your home without adding space. Paint, Paint, Paint. Enough said. But remember to hire a professional if you need help and keep the colors neutral if you’re looking to sell. Remodel Your Kitchen. Small changes can result in big value. Upgrading appliances, door handles and painting tired walls can add new life to your kitchen, and add value to your home. Sometimes doing it yourself can save money, but always bring in a professional for the big jobs. Remodel or Add a Bathroom. A bathroom remodel can often mean simply making the most of your current space, by upgrading fixtures, flooring and lighting. Have a little more money in the budget? Adding a bathroom is a great way to increase the value of your home. For more information on adding value to your home through remodeling contact Home Builders Association of Greater Southwest Illinois for names of member remodelers.
