Exhausting the budget for your Whole Home program can cause headaches or even program failure. Unfortunately, these programs have a large number of variables that can contribute to depleted budgets, including expensive lead generation, heavy administrative duties, and uneconomical QA/QC methods. And utilizing highly manual task management systems like paper folders and Excel files only contributes to the challenges.
