COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- A new guide released today by the Epcon Homebuilding Franchise explains how regional builders can compete more effectively with larger competitors. The guide, "Four Strategies to Gain a Competitive Edge over National Builders" (http://EpconFranchising.com/custom-home-builder-business-strategies), shares the stories of five home builders with varied backgrounds and levels of experience.
"At one time or another, nearly every regional home builder will face competition from a bigger builder with more name recognition and more resources at its disposal," said Jad Buckman, business development manager for Epcon Franchising. "With this new guide, we share how regional builders can position themselves to compete with national builders by adopting a few effective strategies."
Among the strategies covered in the guide is to look for the "blue ocean" by creating uncontested market space. As a result, regional home builders operate in a "blue ocean," as opposed to one churning with fierce competitors.
"Epcon Franchising has done extensive research into the wants and needs of 55+ home buyers," Buckman said. "For example, smaller communities of detached single-family homes appeal to the Baby Boomer buyer, but these types of communities might be unattractive to national builders. This could potentially give regional home builders a unique competitive position in their markets."
The other strategies covered in the guide are: streamlining processes, finding strength in numbers and the power of a name.
"This new how-to guide shares how Epcon's Franchise Builders have implemented these strategies," Buckman said. "We hope the guide offers builders some helpful advice for finding a competitive advantage against the big nationals."
