    The HBA of Greater Spartanburg  announces  it’s  2014 Showcase of Homes to be held on two weekends in May.   The dates are:  Saturday and Sunday  May 3 & 4, and Saturday and Sunday May 10 & 11.  This event is designed to be beneficial to Associate Members and Builder Members alike.  The publication will be a high quality, full size magazine with a high quality cover and well designed  ads.  All current members will be listed in the directory that will be included in the magazine.   To be included in the directory, you must be an active member of HBA Spartanburg on March 6.   Distribution will include 7,000 publications placed at  many points throughout the county, including Realtor offices, banks , and other high traffic areas.   In addition, magazines will be available at Realtor Office, Banks, and other high traffic areas.   There will be no charge for the general public to tour the homes.  Maps will be provided in the magazine designating the locations of the entries.   Homes will be categorized in four price r.  ranges:  $100,000 - $150,000, $150,000 - $250,000, $250,000 - $350,000, $350,000 and up.   Homes will be judged by impartial judges and an awards ceremony or banquet will be held during the week of May 5th.  The winners will get a free ad in next year’s showcase magazine. 

    Support for this event has been tremendous.  We have 4 Media Sponsors who will soon see their logo on the front of the magazine, on TV ads, and other media.  Two more Media Sponsors are expected to confirm by the end of the week.  The HBA wishes to thank the following Media Sponsors for their support and enthusiasm:  PRO-Build, Newman-Sims, First Piedmont Federal, Piedmont Natural Gas


    Builders will be invited to enter up to two homes in the Showcase.  The entry fee will be $500 per home, with a limit of two homes per Builder.  This includes a full page ad in the Showcase Magazine.  The Builder will be expected to sell the ads for the page opposite of his page in the Magazine.  In addition, the Builder will have the opportunity to represent the HBA and promote the HBA Showcase of Homes in our booth at the Expo. Management Home and Garden Show on May 3 and 4.  Entry homes should be completed for maximum exposure, but this is not mandatory.  The Committee asks that homes be at least ¾ complete and that they be safe for the public to enter.   9 Builders have already committed .


    Associates will be invited to support the Builders that you work with by supporting his entry:  you may buy an ad on the page opposite the associate in one of 4 price categories; and/or make arrangements with the Builder to showcase your products and services in his Showcase entry home.  If you choose not to buy an ad in the publication, you will still benefit from having your name in the directory.

    The following is from Dr. Elliot Eisenberg, Ph.D.


    The Friday File: To focus Congress on GDP growth, give members incentive pay. Pay them a base of $60,000 (median income) and incentive pay that rises with GDP. No bonus is paid until GDP growth hits 2%. Between 2%-3% they get a 30% bonus, from 3%-4% a 75% bonus, from 4%-5% a 200% bonus and from 5%-6% a 400% bonus. These incentives should see economic growth trump party purity.

    Good News On Sprinklers


    Special Note on Building Codes

    R.4321 – International Residential Building Code
    (Note: This is not a bill, but a regulation that will be promulgated).
    This week, the 2012 I-Codes were approved on second reading by the Senate. As submitted by LLR, the regulation includes numerous modifications as well as the removal of the mandate for residential fire sprinklers. Thanks to our HBASC Building Codes Committee and its Chairman, Andy Barber, the HBASC was able to make several modifications to the 2012 I-Codes. Sen. Shane Massey (R-Aiken) deserves a great deal of credit for safeguarding the rights of homeowners across the state and defending affordable housing for its citizens.

    Thanks to Mark and Matt for staying on top of this!

    This is very important news for Home Builders.  The above is an excerpt from the HBASC Legislative Newsletter that comes out every Friday during the Session.  If you would like to receive this report on a regular basis, please make sure that the HBA has your correct email address.
