The HomeDev Pro Customer Portal provides your discerning custom home buyers with access to schedules, documents, warranties and more, keeping them informed and engaged throughout the build cycle. Now we’ve updated the HomeDev Pro Customer Portal with options selections and change orders to further engage your customers in the construction of their perfect home.

HomeDev Pro Customer Portal with Options Selections


Customers can now view all options available for their home under the “Selections” tab in a simple to use interface with green/red indicators for accepted/rejected options. Customers approve and reject options through the Portal, and email notifications are automatically sent to the applicable internal and vendor contacts.

Homeowners appreciate the control that they feel in the process: once they have approved an option, they feel comfortable that it will be completed as scheduled.


Move from selections to change orders in HomeDev, and the change is automatically emailed to the customer. Photos and changes are detailed in the Customer Portal to be approved or rejected by the home buyer.


Coming soon is full email functionality within HomeDev Pro, for advanced tracking of all communications related to a project, customer or community. We’re also busy building a private social network into HomeDev. Stay tuned!

Combine these new features with HomeDev Pro’s industry-leading job costing and estimating features for a powerful management tool for custom builders that offers visibility and control to home buyers through the personalized customer portal.

By all accounts, the 2013 International Builders’ Show was a huge success. Home builders came looking for new and innovative solutions to help them build quality homes and streamline their process for maximum return and stability. Education sessions were packed, and there was a keynote for every taste: from Norm Abram, American Carpenter to Paul Sr., American Chopper!

We were excited to show off our new look: Constellation HomeBuilder Systems builds and supports a full suite of home building software solutions, which now look the part of a cohesive software family. No matter how you build homes, there is a product in our family to meet your needs.

Couture Lifestyle Homes is America's Builder of the Year for 2013

Chris Graham, VP of Constellation congratulates Todd Ullom, President of Couture

However, our excitement was eclipsed by our own customer: BUILDER Magazine announced Couture Lifestyle Homes as America’s Best Builder of 2013 in the custom homes category. Dan Morrison, editorial director of BUILDER praised Couture:

“[Couture] epitomizes the importance of customer service and efficient operational systems to any successful selling effort. Their achievements stem from their intense focus on meeting buyers’ needs, and exceeding their expectations when it comes to delivering a well-made product. Constant improvement is built into [Couture’s] DNA.”

Congratulations to Couture Lifestyle Homes!

We like to think that their builder management software, HomeDev Pro, played a small role in streamlining their operations and exceeding buyers’ expectations. Full credit goes to Couture, however, as their incredible homes and happy customers speak for themselves!
