For more than a decade, Builder magazine, the leading publication in the housing industry, has recognized the best builders in the country. To be the best is to excel at the big picture of running a home building company and achieving excellence in:

  • Finance/Operations
  • Design/Construction
  • Customer Service/Quality
  • Community/Industry Service
  • Marketing

Why should you enter?

Winners receive valuable marketing benefits, including:

  • Feature coverage in an issue of Builder
  • A personalized award
  • Press release for your public relations and marketing efforts


Entries are judged only against other builders in the same unit volume range. The size categories vary depending on the entries received.


All builders who build single-family homes are eligible to enter.

If you have won the America’s Best Builders award within the past five years, however, you may not enter.


A panel of industry experts will choose the 2013 award winners. The panel includes builders, home building consultants and past winners.
