Home Builders Should Know How Their Legal Team Identifies Risks
From Professional Warranty Service Corporation: Today’s home builders face a challenging task: Meet the intensifying demand for new homes, despite mounting financial and legal pressures.
It’s a sticky dilemma, and some of the industry’s top innovators are already piloting new business strategies and building methods in their attempt to reconcile home buyer needs with market realities. Such innovation always comes with risk, however, especially as construction projects become more complex—and nearly 8 in 10 construction and engineering companies admit their project risks are mounting. At the same time, profit margins keep getting slimmer as soaring land, material and regulatory costs continue to drive up the price tag on a new build. READ ON AT PWSC.
