New Study Allows Builders to Compare Employee Compensation Against Industry Standards

WASHINGTON, D.C. – March 12, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — A newly released publication from BuilderBooks, the book publishing arm of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) gives homes builders an inside look at building industry employee compensation trends across the country.

The 2014 Single-Family Builder Compensation Study provides compensation and benefits data for 39 common positions at single-family home building companies including Controller, Director of IT, Estimator, and Office Manager.

The study, which was based on data collected in July from builders across the country, is divided into two sections that present the survey findings from different perspectives. The first section provides a broad view of the full-time positions that currently exist at single-family building companies, as well as a comparison of average total compensation and benefits across positions. The second part of the study offers a more detailed view of each individual position’s average compensation and benefits.

Builders can use the results to benchmark what they pay their employees against current industry averages. The study shows average total compensation and the prevalence of benefits offered to each position by geographic region, 2014 dollar volume, number of single-family units started in 2013, and the number of employees on payroll.

The 2014 Single-Family Builder Compensation Study is available for purchase ($149.95 Retail/$79.95 NAHB Member, ISBN 978-0-86718-737-3) at or by calling 800-223-2665. The eBook is available at ($89.99 Retail/$55.99 for NAHB Members).
