Homebuilder Buying Group Achieves Size of Top-50 Builder

Share Article

Significant milestone helps Builder Sourcing improve bottom line for builders and suppliers.

Builder Sourcing Corporation, a buying group of independent homebuilders and select, high-quality suppliers, has grown to the equivalent size of a top-50 builder. Its size and growth continues to attract builders and suppliers, creating momentum that has translated into significant savings for builders and increased market share for suppliers.

Builder Sourcing provides a new way for homebuilders and their suppliers to collaborate, benefiting the bottom lines of both. As members of the Builder Sourcing buying group, homebuilders gain much of the same buying power as national builders, allowing them to lower costs while maintaining or even improving product quality. At the same time, suppliers strengthen and increase their market share with some of the best independent homebuilders.

“Builder Sourcing is a way for builders and suppliers to work together as a unified buying group. We have lowered costs for our builders and increased market share and account penetration for our suppliers. A true win-win scenario,” said Charles Schneider, president of Builder Sourcing. “We are very excited about reaching this major milestone. Our next goal is to be equivalent in size to a top-25 builder.”

By creating scale and buying power, Builder Sourcing levels the playing field for homebuilders and allows them to benefit from much of the same buying discounts and programs as large national builders. Collaborative purchasing makes it easier for independent builders to stay competitive in an industry dominated by big builders, while retaining the individuality that makes their homes sought after. Builder Sourcing takes on the administrative role of comparing costs, negotiating the best possible deals, and handling all of the paperwork, leaving members more time to focus on building their own business.

“We are able to capitalize on the purchasing power of a national homebuilder. Our direct construction costs have been reduced and we are able to continue working with our existing building systems and practices,” said Michael New, president of New Homes, Inc.

Supplier members are more successful pursuing opportunities with independent builders, a selling channel that is often difficult and costly to penetrate. Builder Sourcing brings together builders and suppliers who are top-level decision makers, paving the way for increased business. Plus, Builder Sourcing builds long-lasting relationships with a select group of suppliers, so they can provide significant value, volume and stability to their businesses.

“Builder Sourcing provides us with greater access to a network of homebuilders who will benefit from our broad range of products and services. Their commitment to developing long-term alliances with builders in the top markets is directly in-line with our strategic goals,” said Jimmy Sisco, General Manager of Atrium Windows & Doors.

Builder Sourcing’s founder, Charles Schneider, was formerly a senior executive with MDC Holdings Inc., one of the nation’s largest homebuilders that builds under the name Richmond American Homes. Schneider was responsible for national purchasing, where he implemented programs that leveraged the company’s size, creating large and important supply relationships that significantly lowered costs. Combined with more than 25 years of supply-chain and business management, Builder Sourcing built its foundation on this experience and success.

As they continue to expand their membership base, Builder Sourcing will attend the upcoming PCBC 2005, which is June 1-3 in San Francisco.
