Study: Top 20 most trusted homebuilders in America

by Chip Bell


Taylor Morrison Home Corporation is once again the most trusted homebuilder in America, according to Lifestory Research’s 2017 Home Builder Study.

Polling the opinions of more than 31,000 active home shoppers, Lifestory Research’s survey, now in its fifth year, aims to understand the link between consumer trust and brand evaluation. It ranks the nation’s top 20 builders based on their Net Trust Index Quotient Score (an average score is 100).

“Relationships and trust are the foundation of success for any business,” said Taylor Morrison President and CEO Sheryl Palmer, whose company was also ranked No. 1 in last year’s study. “Every day we strive to provide our customers with the resources and support to help them make an educated decision about their most important investment.”

Taylor Morrison operates in 16 regional markets across nine states – Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, N. Carolina, S. Carolina and Texas – and closed more than 6,300 homes in 2015.
