  • July 29-Aug 1: Builder online proofing within portal; builder access is limited to certain features on Aug. 2
    • Most importantly, ensure the COUNTY is correct during this proofing period. If incorrect you need to call 816.733.2217 or email Paige@kchba.org to update.
    • Double check the geolocation of your home is correct; the listed address and the mapped geolocation run independently of one another. This ensures your map pin is correct in the printed guide and correct within the app using longitude and latitude. Consumers use this to find your home!
