Home Building Association of Richmond (HBAR) is a non-profit group, founded in 1946. For its hundreds of members, we are much more than just a professional trade organization. HBAR is a powerful voice for the homebuilding industry in the legislative, regulatory and political arenas. By providing four key areas of service: advocacy, education, networking, and marketing, we continue to help contribute to our members’ business and personal successes. HBAR’s dedication to preserving the American dream of homeownership is central to the community’s spirit and wellbeing. This dream must be preserved for all generations.

Our membership is committed to fighting for safe and affordable housing in our communities, expanding business and technical skills, and educating consumers about the newest industry products, techniques and services through events like Richmond Parade of Homes® and Richmond Homearama®. Each of these events is well attended and provides our members with opportunities to display their skills and talents to the community.


Provide leadership to develop innovative programs, which enable our community to thrive. Using research, education and public relations we will be a credible resource, building a strong coalition for the current and future benefit of our Association and Community.
