The Housing Innovation Alliance fosters collaborative insights that address business pains today and accelerates innovation that will change the housing industry moving forward.
The ultimate goal of the Alliance is to ensure that high quality, high-value housing is sustainable for our industry and truly attainable for the consumer.
Over the next five years—given the number of Millennials and Boomers—the opportunity to provide new, attainable housing for middle income households is about 1 million homes per year. These homes, if purchased, are at price points of $200,000 to $450,000, depending upon the market.
At the same time, there are a number of significant challenges that are keeping us from producing at the volume necessary and at the price points people can bear, including land prices, regulatory burdens, labor shortages and productivity issues.
In short, attainable housing is both a huge opportunity and a huge challenge. There has never been a greater need for collaboration and innovation in our industry—new thinking, new relationships and new solutions, and the Alliance is here to help.
Production housing providers account for more than 50% of new housing delivered each year. To have the greatest impact, we focus on helping them deliver better homes and become better businesses.
While specific topics and issues evolve with the needs of our community, the framework for our agenda remains the same. We start by asking one core question:
What will the future home delivery company look like?
Who’s leading innovation in terms of business models, consumer values, and home delivery? What can we learn to drive innovation today, and where are the opportunities for growth 3-5 years down the line?
Throughout the year, Alliance members connect, share expertise, and exchange ideas and insights through activities including research and program development discussions, live and virtual round table events, roadtrips, our annual Innovation Summit, social media and other online forums, and our monthly e-newsletter.
The Housing Innovation Alliance provides the "one stop shop" for keeping up with innovation in the housing industry. No other venue assembles this many key stakeholders on topics that go beyond buying and selling.
In this non-competitive, open environment, the focus is on one common goal: to ensure our collaborators are addressing challenges and opportunities head on and are positioned to prosper.
We have a community-driven agenda. We engage in honest discussions, open sharing of successes and failures, and work together to “connect the dots." The result is a growing knowledgebase on subjects that matter.
