New Home Builder Ratings

If you are like most new home buyers, you're probably interested to compare how the new home builders you're considering rank in customer satisfaction. After all, knowing how the builders rank before you purchase can save you the headache of learning about home builder complaints you didn't know about later on.  The following new home builder ratings results are based on answers to questions on the following categories in order of importance:  home builder's customer service, home readiness, builder's sales staff, quality of build workmanship and materials, price/value, physical design elements, design center, recreational facilities and location of the new home development.
