Home Builder Solutions
EX² Knows Home Builders Marketing
Born from BDX (Builders Digital Experience) — a consortium founded & owned by home builders, driving quality up and costs down — EX² Solutions has unmatched expertise in new home marketing + technology implementations. Our parent company revolutionized the home building industry by (literally) setting the standard for online listings, leads, options marketing, and more. BDX is also the #1 market leader in cost-effective websites, apps, kiosks, video and rich media visualization for home builders.
Since 2006, EX² has successfully implemented complex redesigns of enterprise-grade websites for leading national & regional home builders. We create powerful user experiences for new home marketing, lead generation, sales and service. Our innate familiarity with home builders’ business & operations, and time tested experience with builder processes — including deep integrations with CRM, ERP, and marketing automation systems — gives our clients access to expert software development capabilities, without the competitive overhead of recruiting and maintaining large in-house IT teams.
Our Sitecore CMS services take home builder marketing to the next level with sophisticated content management, targeting and automation capabilities to optimize your marketing budget: reaching the right audiences, at the right time during their home buying customer journey.
