With so much growth in Idaho, and so many builders coming into the area as too, it might be hard to decipher who’s from “around these parts” and who is new to the residential housing market around here.
There’s subdivisions and new community signs popping up like dandelions in your yard (and remember, dandelions are our friends!) but I’d like to take a minute to talk about a home builder who’s homegrown, and proud to be made in Idaho!
You may have heard the stat, that when you spend a dollar with a local Idaho business, 68 cents of the dollar stays in Idaho. National chain with a location in Idaho? 48 cents. When you purchase online (unless it’s with one of our local Idaho businesses of course!) ZERO cents stays here in our local communities.
Hubble Homes is made in Idaho, born and raised, and they are celebrating their 25th anniversary! Hubble homes are responsible for over 1,500 local jobs, and are the mainstay of over 48 local trade partner! In fact, half of the trades currently working with Hubble Homes to complete their homes and communities have been with Hubble since before Hubble Homes WAS Hubble Homes, and many more for 15 years or longer.
That’s a lot of tradesmen, contractors, craftsmen and more who go to work every morning in our community, make purchases in our community throughout the day, and then go home to their OWN home….you guessed it, right here in our community. That’s 68 cents of every dollar that isn’t building someone’s out-of-state portfolio or swimming pool, and that’s something to be proud of as an Idahoan.
Hubble Homes is currently starting over 4 new homes a day, and here’s something else to take into consideration if you are one of the hundreds of thousands currently worried about rising home prices and the cost of real estate. Local builders, when they are competing with local builders for land, materials, and labor, can contribute to keeping costs flatter and maintaining that Idaho way of life that brings us here, and KEEPS us here.
Hubble Homes is comprised of local contractors, employees, suppliers and more, so their investment in the community goes far beyond just throwing up a home as quickly as possible, and leaving the scene.
In fact, their commitment to the community is so great, that they literally give homes away, at a time when you can have offers stacked ten deep!
Here are the details!
The Hero House, is Hubble Home’s way of being a big machine, in the name of good! When you have worked as hard and been as blessed as this business has, it just makes cents (see what I did there) to pay it forward, and they do it with the Hero House!
Instead of building a home, and blessing one family, Hubble Homes and their partners pool their blessings, time, and resources to build a home. That’s right, 100% of the proceeds from the 100% donated labor, materials, land, and time proceeds go to local charities when the home is sold!
And here’s how the deal is sweetened for just about everybody in Idaho, whether you are a charity that’s passionate about dogs, dental care, domestic violence, salmon dams, and everything in between!
There are 7 recipients of the proceeds from the sale of the Hero Home, and the 7 charities are nominated internally, by Hubble Homes employees and trade partners! They live, work, and thrive in these communities, so who would know better what their community needs to thrive? When those 7 charities are chosen, they aren’t put through a lengthy grant process or trial period, they are surprised with the donation from Don Hubble and the whole team for good, and I can imagine their surprise.
Where’s the next Hero Home going to be? Ground was recently broken in Kuna, ID, and I can’t wait to see how much is donated when the home’s new owners close and 7 charities get a giant donation…
You can buy a home from the builder of your choice, and there are many great ones to choose from; some local, some from places far out of town and out of state. As a proud Buy Idaho member, I’d like to remind you that Hubble Homes is going to take your dollar and reinvest it back to your community. OUR community. OUR IDAHO!
