We are proud to announce that Dave Lemnah, Lokal Homes' Co-Owner, was named the 2024 Home Builders Association (HBA) Board President at the HBA's Annual Meeting on November 29th.
Dave’s appointment comes at a time when the affordability of buying a home in Colorado is at the lowest point in more than 33 years, considering that the median home price climbed from just under $300,000 in June of 2017 to just under $600,000 in June of 2022.
Dave will collaborate with the HBA staff to, “define and communicate our approach to address building and attainability challenges, which include advocating for a housing continuum that supports a wide product spectrum and price points, construction litigation reform, the essential role of metro districts, smaller lot zoning and removing bureaucratic processes and roadblocks."
Additionally, Dave plans to, “increase communication, cooperation, and membership across builders, build-for-rent operators, trade partners, suppliers, and the many other essential associates to achieve the HBA’s goals and mission.”
Congratulations, Dave! We are grateful to have a leader who is dedicated to addressing Colorado's building and attainability challenges.
