Insurance Savings

The Alabama Home Builders Self Insurers Fund (AHBSIF) offers worker’s compensation insurance at a discount of 25% off competitive market premiums to Association members, PLUS a good safety record (E-Mod) means another premium discount. Members also qualify to receive dividend payments after three years of membership in the Fund. These payments increase as your membership in the Fund continues and a safety record is maintained. Many members report receiving annual dividend checks for thousands of dollars. In addition, you’ll save money by using the included OSHA protection tools, which include workplace safety plan templates, assistance from safety trainers and safety certification training.

The Parade of Homes is the largest new home tour in the state of Alabama and features new construction design and decor trends. With thousands of potential home buyers walking through each home, the Parade of Homes is a great way to attract a great number of people in a short amount of time.
