How it Works


If you are a CHBA new home builder member, simply sign up in 2 minutes now.

We’ll send you instructions and data forms so that you can submit a list of your qualified buyer contacts to be included in the survey. These must be customers who purchased a new home from you in the last two years. All that is required is contact information for your buyers – the data submission process is fast and easy.

CHBA will then directly invite your contacts to be part of the 2020 survey. Those who accept this invitation will be connected to the CHBA Home Buyer Preference Survey site, operated by Avid Ratings Canada in partnership with the CHBA.

All customer data supplied by you will remain secure, will only be used for the purposes of this survey, and will be purged following completion of the survey.

The CHBA Home Buyer Preference Survey complies fully with Canada’s Anti-Spam (CASL) law.
