This post isn’t about programming or web development, sorry.
My wife and I are/were looking for a new home.
Ratings for builders are unreliable, all the big ones showed 1.5-3 starts because people are generally happy for a few months, then complain for a couple years, then are content. So it depends more on when they rated. So, I created something a little more objective… but only a little. I will probably work on law suits and lender ratings next, if I keep interested.
It’s not totally complete, if you have any corrections or missing data, let me know.

Pretty interesting. I moved Ashton Woods to the bottom of rated builders, because they didn’t have any Rip Off Reports… Sounds strange, but to have $734,000,000 in sales and no complaints is a bit weird. Until I have some proof that they are that awesome, I can’t in good conscious put them ahead of builders with more data. But I did put them at the top of the builders without enough data as a consolation.
