ACCESS COMPETITIVE PRICING
SAVE TIME NEGOTIATING
GROW YOUR BOTTOM LINE
You might be missing out on this competitive pricing advantage...
In order to stay elite you need to take advantage of every opportunity. Without leverage to negotiate low prices like larger companies, you can miss out on opportunities to strengthen your bottom line and be as competitive as you’d like. Add in regular price fluctuations making it tough to plan, and you can end up feeling frustrated and powerless. We believe elite homebuilders deserve a greater competitive advantage, and CBUSA is here to help.

How we help you grow your bottom line:
We guide you through cooperative planning and buying practices
By combining your volume with other CBUSA members in your market, you can significantly reduce material and labor costs.
You enjoy the price savings and supportive community
Come together with industry leaders to share ideas around cost savings and participate in negotiations with top manufacturers and nationally-recognized brands.
You thrive as an elite and profitable builder
Together, CBUSA members have the combined purchasing volume and buying power of a national builder. This market strength allows CBUSA members to gain significant purchasing advantage over their competitors and to deliver increased volume to the companies that support their efforts.
The most appealing thing is the accessibility to people on the manufacturing side that you won’t get anywhere else. I had dinner with the vice president of sales at Lennox. You just don’t have access like that as a small local builder without a CBUSA membership.
How I purchase with CBUSA is a game changer for my business. With the CBUSA website, I’m able to get access to CBUSA pricing immediately versus having to get actual quotes for multiple different vendors.
We joined CBUSA in 2019. It has probably been to date one of the best things we’ve done for our company. We benefited not only from cost savings and purchasing but from camaraderie and mentoring relationships with other established builders.
The founders of CBUSA really thought things out. They put the effort into staffing the company with good people. The support has been the key to success for this group. It’s what attracted me to the organization when I joined.
The biggest value to me in the group is the knowledge base, camaraderie and willingness to share information with the best builders in our market.
By using the CBUSA program, we now have what we consider two very good HVAC trades who are responsive, have good service organizations, have competitive prices and can handle production, commercial and custom jobs. This is a primary reason we are members of CBUSA.
If somebody is trying to go it alone, if it's a hobby, then yeah, go for it, knock yourself out. But now, if you're trying to be successful and grow your business in any way, CBUSA had huge impacts on my business.
I am a firm believer that a rising tide will raise all boats. For me to benefit, it doesn't mean that somebody else has to sacrifice or that I have to sacrifice so that somebody else can benefit.
Anybody that's looking at getting into our group, we'd love to have them, but we're going to vet them out. Once you get the group in, there's a shared camaraderie and people take ownership. We're not going to let just anybody into the group. They've got to be a quality builder in town and pay their bills, so you end up with the best of the group in your market.
There's so many aspects of a building company. Sometimes I feel like building a house is only 10% of it. It's the other 90% that you really need to focus on and being able to bounce ideas off of other builders is very helpful. In our group, we're very collaborative and trusting of each other. We've all been through ups and downs. We understand that we're in a good market and that there's enough to go around.
CBUSA's Committed Purchase Program delivers significant savings in every home that I build while maintaining a high level of service from our preferred suppliers. As one of the larger builders, I am seeing results that would be difficult to achieve on my own.
CBUSA has helped me to better operate my business by saving money through Brand Partner National Contracts and Committed Purchase Programs. It also helps by controlling cost and improving service from our trade partners and suppliers, simply by the power of numbers with regard to our fellow members and the purchasing volume it provides. I highly recommend the program to any professional home builder.
CBUSA's lumber purchase program has been a great success here in Cleveland. It is the equivalent of selling another home to the bottom line for our company and it was accomplished in a few hours of work.
