MaxCon Construction Software Forecasts 2012 Upturn in Housing Starts

May 30, 2012 | By |

MaxCon is now forecasting a breakout upturn in housing starts reversing a four-year sideways
no-growth consolidation.

  • Based on our analysis we’re forecasting that housing starts will follow the May 2012 upside breakout in builder confidence as calculated by the NAHB.
  • The net forecast: In Q3 2012, housing starts will begin a strong upside trend, taking US housing starts to the 800,000 to 900,000 in the October-November target time frame.

Implications for Residential Contractors:

  • Prepare now for upturn with infrastructure investment (systems, marketing, software, etc)
  • Maintaining or increasing market share will go to those who prepare now so that resources are in place when growth spurt occurs in the 3-6 month target.

Details and Background:

The National Association of Home Builders [NAHB] publishes monthly its measure of builder confidence.  Based on a survey of builders nationwide, the Housing Market Index [HMI] tracks the ups and downs of how builders see the prospects in the coming months.  Using several survey questions, they’ve developed a formula to calculate the HMI; it can range from between 0 and 100.
Why is the Housing Market Index important to contractors?

  • Based on the analysis we’ve done at MaxCon Construction Management Software, we’ve found that this HMI index of builder confidence usually leads actual housing starts by three to six months.
  • It’s housing starts that we’re all interested in because it reflects the real status of the residential construction market.   The higher housing starts, the better business is overall.  We recognize that when housing starts drops, the remodel, refurbish, and repair business can get stronger; but overall the more residential new construction starts, the better it is for contractors of all types: home builders, roofers, decks and fencing, siding and other specialty construction companies.

What it means for contractor business investment and growth plans.

Simply put, if we can predict an upturn in the builder economy,  contractors can have greater confidence that investments in growth will have a real payoff.   For those contractors that can get organized for growth in the economy faster than competitors, you’ll have a leg up in building your market share.    We’re talking about investments in marketing, and construction company infrastructure such as SaaS CRM software.

Here’s our summary forecast chart based on the May 2012 HMI results.

5 Questions for your construction business strategy

February 20, 2012 | By |

Why ask the big questions of your construction business?

It’s simple, really, how asking yourself a few key questions can move you forward as you look to grow your contracting business.  Since we’re in the business of helping contractors grow their business and improve profits, we think about this a lot.  In fact, improving profits and operations efficiency is why we’re in the construction software business.

roofing sales process

Question #1:  What are our critical business decisions?

Reviewing and reflecting on the important decisions you need to make to grow your construction business is the first step.   Perhaps you are not satisfied with your sales and sales lead process, for example, so here the decision might be, first, to make a commitment to improve sales lead generation and sales lead conversion rates.   There is power in merely identifying the decision area. You might not have all the answers yet, but writing it down on your list, your decision agenda, can be powerful and motivating.

Question #2:  What are the best options to grow my business?

So, from question #1, you might make a decision to grow sales as a step to improve profits. But that decision, while important, doesn’t energize action.  This is where coming up with actual options leads to action.  Using our “improving sales” decision example, options are the possible choices you have to improve sales.   Use some creativity here, and look ahead to the other questions on the list.  As an example, options to the “improving construction sales” decision might be…

  1. Hire more sales people.
  2. Conduct sales training for the people you have.
  3. Better organize your sales process and improve lead conversion.
  4. Revise your sales compensation program.
  5. Consider the effectiveness of your advertising.

See the power of generating options or choices?  You may decide to take action on more than one.  The magic comes from taking a deep look from with inside to harvest your construction business experience and knowledge.

Question #3:  What management tools can give us advantage?

Keeping an eye on the management tools and process that are available stimulates thinking. What are the possibilities?  What are the opportunities to use the latest construction management tools?   What services are available to help?  Reviewing these can help refine your options or choices.

Question #4: What are successful contractors doing?

Talking to colleagues is valuable: ask yourself, “What are the winners doing?”  What management tools are they using?  What processes, procedures, and policies do they use? And back to our example, how do the best have a humming sales engine?

Question #5: What is our ultimate business goal?

This last question, gets to the bottom line.  Take time to think about your most imporltant business goals.   What is your ultimate goal?   In our example of growing sales, you may not want to grow sales volume, but rather, you may wish to instead maximize the profitability fromm the sales you already generate.

The point is to get to the basics of your ultimate business goals given your track record, experience, and your construction company’s capacities.

Conclusion:

There you have it.   Five basic questions to ask yourself to improve your construction profits.  You may have other questions to add to the list.  Keep asking yourself these questions, and your colleagues in the business, and your employees.  The result will be a more focused and clear business strategy for your construction business.
