The HBA Benefit Home is the annual construction of a home built mostly – if not entirely – through donations of construction management, materials, supplies, labor and monies of the members of the Home Builders Association of Greater Austin. The majority of net proceeds from the sale of the home on the open market benefit local charities as designated by HBA. The Benefit Home offers the HBA a unique opportunity to give something back to the larger community, specifically to designated beneficiaries who are significantly and positively impacting the Greater Austin community. What’s more, it’s a perfect example of how the 700+ members of the HBA contribute to the economic impact of the communities in which they build and make a direct impact on worthy causes within those communities.

Thank You David Weekley Homes & Hunt Properties for sponsoring the 2022 Benefit Home at The Colony
The Management of construction of a marketable home is handled by the sponsoring builder
Together the HBA and the Builder/Developer host VIP Events for HBA members, vendors, and leaders from HomeAid Austin—one at Groundbreaking and one at completion.
The HBA recruits a small task force of expert members (including a home designer) to solicit donations of materials and labor; as well as coordinate the vendors and selections with the Builder to drive down the hard costs of the home.
The Builder/Developer typically also hosts a resident Sneak Preview Event upon home completion (to drive referral sales) and engage the residents in the community on this exciting project.
A Realtor Event when the home goes to market and additional Realtor outreach will be facilitated with the task force and through the Builder/Developer contacts.
Once the home is successfully sold and closed, the HBA and the Builder/Developer will invite the leaders of all benefiting charities to receive the contribution and celebrate the results!
