One of the many benefits of national CARH membership is the opportunity for companies to participate in CARH’s Preferred Buyers program. We have been able to combine the size and strength of our membership to negotiate national supplier agreements at preferred pricing with large national vendors:  HD Supply, ONLINE Rental Exchange, Sherwin-Williams, Staples, and USI Insurance Services. These Preferred Buyer companies provide CARH members and member properties with unprecedented services and savings!

In addition, every purchase you make through a linked account to national CARH, supports CARH’s mission to our members and residents in the affordable rural housing industry.

We are pleased to announce that we have just recently renewed our agreement with long-time Preferred Buyer, HD Supply. We encourage all of our members to view HD Supply when purchasing all of your maintenance and renovation supplies. Some of the benefits of using HD Supply include:
