Our story

For nearly two decades, CBUSA has been helping independent home builders better their businesses. And it all began with a group of industry leaders like you looking to do just that.

In 2004, a group of forward-thinking home builders in Northern Virginia started CBUSA with the belief that they deserved the same respect as the large-scale residential contractors they were competing against. By working together, they were able to enhance their material buying power and increase profits.

It was from this revelation that CBUSA was born.

Since then, our network has expanded to include over 750 premier home builders in more than 34 local chapters across the U.S. Today, we’re rapidly expanding into new markets as more builders see the value of working with – not against – their competition.

CBUSA was purchased by Buildertrend in 2021, which allowed for even greater support for our members. As the nation’s largest group purchasing organization in the residential construction industry, we’re able to bring home builders together, create more supplier programs both locally and nationally, increase earned rebates and negotiate better pricing.

We made the Builder 100 list

CBUSA was ranked within the top five of the Builder 100 list for 2023 based on the combined number of closings by our builders in 2022. The CBUSA network ended 2022 with 15,000 closings and $9 billion in revenue. As a combined group, our members are performing at the same level as national builders.
