Powered by NewHomeSource.com, TrustBuilder delivers honest reviews from real homeowners about the home buying experience. The program creates the industry destination for reviews that are independent, transparent and credible, driving a truer and more positive representation of home buyer sentiment. Dozens of builders across the United States are already leveraging Trustbuilder reviews on NewHomeSource.com. Today, 25% of new home communities on NewHomeSource.com feature reviews and the number is rising. By contacting every new homebuyer from participating builders, BDX is able to provide a true representation of homeowner sentiment with solicited, honest reviews. The TrustBuilder approach is already changing the game for reviews in the homebuilding space. Most pre-existing industry reviews are unsolicited and unverified, and therefore dominated by an unhappy few. To further the credibility of the program, BDX has partnered with Bazaarvoice, a leader in the ratings and reviews space to manage the process of collecting and verifying the reviews. Participation in the TrustBuilder program is free for all BDX clients who list on NewHomeSource.com. Ratings and reviews are published on NewHomeSource.com and builders also have the option to embed ratings and reviews on their own websites and social media streams.
