Avid Awards

In recognition of the best builders providing extraordinary customer experiences, Avid Ratings is proud to present the Avid Awards. 

What are the Avid Awards?

The Avid Awards celebrate homebuilders throughout North America with the highest homebuying experience survey scores, which are evaluated using Avid’s award-winning AvidCX platform.

Avid Award winners are chosen based on results received from some of the largest publicly traded NYSE/NASDAQ builders, North America’s largest private builders, and hundreds of small volume and custom builders from coast to coast.

Every homebuyer survey in our database is analyzed to determine each builder’s overall rating. Avid’s New Home Experience surveys collect detailed homebuyer feedback and provide industry-leading insights on overall satisfaction, willingness to refer, actual number of recommendations, and strategic CX diagnostics for homebuilders.
