According to Lifestory Research’s 2018 America Most Trusted Home Builder Study, homebuilder Taylor Morrison scored the highest in trust among new home shoppers. This marks the third consecutive year Taylor Morrison has ranked number 1 on the list. The survey factors in the opinions of more than 31,000 home shoppers who are actively searching for a new home and how much they trust the brands they encounter during their home search.

Buying a home is not only a significant investment, but it is also the place people live out their personal stories, and as a result, trust is at the forefront of their purchase decision.”
