First market research study of its kind the result of a partnership between Wisconsin Builders Association and Avid Ratings

Madison, WI (January 10, 2017) – The Wisconsin Builders Association® (WBA), in partnership with Avid® Ratings, a full-service customer engagement and loyalty management firm, recently announced the release of the largest market research study in Wisconsin for homeowner satisfaction and preferences. Several WBA member homebuilders, remodelers, trade contractors, building product retailers, and installers that completed projects from January 2010 through December 2015 participated in this first-of-its-kind study conducted by Avid Ratings.

The study surveyed 2,408 homeowners with a higher-than-average 11 percent responding, and examined more than 50 in-depth areas of customer satisfaction, home design, building features, buying preferences, and demographics. Findings revealed high levels of consumer satisfaction with Wisconsin homebuilders, noting them as knowledgeable (91.9%), courteous (93.6%), and responsive (86.3%), with over 85% satisfied overall with their builder and willing to recommend to a friend.

“As an organization equally dedicated to protecting the home buyer, we’re thrilled to see that Wisconsin builders—many of which are our members—are meeting and exceeding the expectations of Wisconsin buyers,” said WBA Executive Director Brad Boycks. “This invaluable feedback, along with feedback on design trends and preferences, helps keep the industry moving forward.”
