WASHINGTON, D.C. – June 2, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) announced that Tim McCarthy of Traditions of America has been elected chairman of NAHB’s 50+ Housing Council. Mr. McCarthy is the Managing Partner and founder of Traditions of America in Radnor, Pa., a leader in the 55+ housing industry. McCarthy succeeds Steve Bomberger of Benchmark Builders in Wilmington, Del., and will serve a one-year term.
“My priorities in the coming year are to work with the 50+ Housing Council Board of Trustees toward expanding our council’s membership, attracting sponsors who recognize the value in the growing boomer market and producing world-class education opportunities for our members,” McCarthy said. “Over a quarter of today’s home buyers are age 55 or older, so it’s important to know as much as possible about what they want and need so that we can provide them with homes that will serve them well for decades.”
In addition to his involvement with the 50+ Housing Council, McCarthy is a Board Member of the Housing Finance Committee. He is also a member of the Advisory Council of the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Housing and Health Task Force. Mr. McCarthy is a graduate of Villanova University and also a member of Villanova’s Real Estate Advisory Board.
