NAHB Now Accepting Applications for 2014 Best of 50+ Housing Awards

WASHINGTON, D.C. – August 7, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) 50+ Housing Council is now accepting applications for the 2014 Best of 50+ Housing Awards, which honor excellence in building, design, marketing and lifestyle of housing for boomers and beyond. A panel of industry professionals will judge entries in a total of 45 award categories, including “Best 50+ Detached Home,” “Best 50+ Affordable Rental Community,” “Best 50+ Recognition of Sustainable Features,” “Best 50+ Online Marketing Strategy” and “Best 50+ Lifestyle Program,” among others.

Winning entries in the 50+ Project Awards (Built) categories are automatically nominated for the Best 50+ Community of the Year Award—the NAHB Best of 50+ Housing Awards’ top honor. This award recognizes the community that demonstrates excellence in innovative design and construction and also reflects the attention to detail that signals a superior community.

“A healthier housing economy has enabled mature buyers to sell their existing homes and purchase homes that are more user-friendly,” said 50+ Housing Council Chairman Robert Karen, managing member of the Symphony Development Group. “Builders are responding with innovative designs and features at all price points—and the sector’s top tier will be honored in the Best of 50+ Housing Awards.”

All builders, developers, marketers and designers of 50+ housing are invited to enter this prestigious awards competition. The winners will be announced at the NAHB International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas on Feb. 5, 2014.
