[url removed, login to view] is a website where new home buyers can check out how builders were rated by previous buyers. The site will offer visitors the ability to find builders either through a search box or they may find their builders via a city/state search. The city and state page will display all appropriate builders in alphabetical order. The city/state pages will show the survey results (averaged) to the primary questions as well as have links to the builder’s website and to HomeTownBuilders (if they are listed on HomeTownBuilders). The visitor will be able to sort each page by category results (i.e. highest overall score, on time delivery, etc.) They can also filter the results to match their own criteria (such as only show me builders with an overall rating higher than 8). This page will also indicate if the Builder participates in our referral service.
All pages will have standard navigation features, google word ads, and sponsorship ads.
The Home Page will give a brief synopsis of Rate-A-Builder and require all visitors to register. Home Buyers and Builders will register separately. Home Buyers will be asked if they want to view the Builder’s Survey Ratings or if they would like to take a survey.
Navigation buttons will allow visitors to go to our Builder referral service (this service allows home buyers to contact previous home buyers to inquire about the Builder’s performance)
Builders will be allowed to purchase the full survey results of each previous home buyer who has completed our survey. We will encourage the Builders to use our service as their primary surveying service and enhancement to their customer service.
All visitors will need to register and provide the basic information. All builders will need to register and provide the basic information plus indicate their title, contact person, email address.
Visitors will be asked if they have purchased a new home in the past 2 years and would like to complete our builder survey. If so, they will be taken to the survey section. If not, they will be taken to the results section where they can find their builder by searching their state and city. They can also update their profile from this page.
Builders will be taken to the builder’s page where the builder may update their profile, visit the completed survey section which will list all completed surveys that are less than two years old that they have not previously purchased. They will be allowed to purchase their surveys. The builder can also visit the Referral Service section from here to sign up and review their references. Builders can also pay to activate their web link from this section.
The surveys will require the previous customer to have purchased a home in the past two years. The surveys consist of the background survey (to make sure they qualify), demographics (used for marketing purpose) and the closing survey. These all comprise the first survey. The 6 month and 12 month surveys are follow up surveys that are invitation only (survey takers who complete the first survey will get an email invitation to complete the 6 month and 12 month surveys at the appropriate time. This will require a special link in the email.
The referral service will be made available to all visitors for a fee. People who complete a survey will be asked if they wish to be used as a reference (we will need to have a form they complete to cover this). Builders will also be asked if they wish to participate (they will have to approve the referrals and agree to reimburse the visitors who use the service and purchase a home from them).
The survey results will contain 7 questions that will show the average response to each question. We will also display the number of surveys included in the average. Any survey that belongs to someone who closed more than two years from the date viewed will be discarded.
Visitors should be able to print our survey summary results and also have the capability of emailing our pages to friends and make us a favorite.
Please note that the first survey will contain approximately 40 questions. The follow up surveys will contain approximately 10 questions each. We will need to be able to provide a shopping cart service for both builders and customers.
