In these challenging times for home building, high-quality, reliable information is at a premium. In an effort to keep you informed as well as offer you news you can use, BUILDER is conducting a State of the Industry survey that will become the basis of an article in our January 2010 issue. We would like to tap your knowledge and expertise to help us analyze the current state of the housing market. We've developed a short survey that you can take by clicking here.

Completing this survey should not take more than a few minutes of your time, but it will add tremendous depth to our reporting on this topic. We would really appreciate your input.

Thanks in advance for your help.
