Who We Are
The Home Builders Association of Tennessee (HBAT) is a not-for-profit, 2,500 member trade Association comprised of professional builders, developers and associated firms engaged directly or indirectly in homebuilding, remodeling, and light commercial construction. Established in 1960, the HBAT has 14 local associations across the state. The HBAT, along with our locals, are also members of the National Association of Home Builders in Washington, D.C. We are not a regulatory agency. HBAT’s role is to support our affiliate associations throughout the state of Tennessee, be the voice for the housing industry at the state level and act as a liaison between the local and national organizations.
