• Initiate agreements and negotiations with sub-contractors that will maximize value, quality and delivery to NVR and the home buyer

• Update and maintain sales pricing and cost information for all active and future communities

• Project costs for new home designs and product offerings as part of the overall Division business plan

• Review plans for standardization of components, options, and construction methods


• 5+ years of experience of comparable financial analysis, costing, planning, or economic analysis with demonstrated attention to detail
