Seeking a residential home builder business plan? Severe fluctuations in the economy recently have created a very challenging marketplace for residential homebuilders. DR Horton, Pulte (Centex), and other major firms have had to scale back their operations nationwide, and for smaller home builders and start-ups seeking to get into the space, challenges abound. Despite this, the turnaround is inevitable and there will be substantial opportunities for smart, careful home builders who can push the envelope on the American Dream. But what does the home builder business plan need to include? The following topics should give you an excellent starting point:
• What is your background/expertise in home building?
• What industry statistics can you use in support of your plan?
• What marketing elements will you undertake?
• Do you work directly with consumers, or build for an intermediary?
• Can you show any designs or photos of past projects?
• What are your funding needs?
For the financial model and your funding request, the business plan for residential home building should show not just the exact amount of capital you require, but how you will spend it. A category by category allocation is important, as is a fixed net profit estimate 3 years or 5 years out so that investors or bankers can determine their stake. The business plan's model should show revenues, cash flow, balance sheet, profit and loss, a break-even point, and preferably a sensitivity analysis for the venture. An appendix showing Year One in detail is also a good addition. Need help with this document? MasterPlans can deliver you an exceptional draft in about two weeks.
