Founded in 1992, Avid® Ratings is "the industry leader for measuring home quality and creating exceptional customer experiences throughout North America." For the past 15 years, the independent research firm's Avid Awards™ have honored North American homebuilders who earned top scores from their customers on comprehensive surveys administered at various stages throughout the homebuying process.

The Avid® Benchmark Award is given to builders who score among the top 25 percent on Avid® Ratings' "New Home Move-in Experience survey," which evaluates homebuyer experience from close through 90 days of homeownership.
