Excellence Built on Tradition

Over 70 years ago, Stepan K. Hovnanian started a family tradition of building excellence. Now, over seven thousand homes and three generations later - under the guidance of his son Jirair's, grandsons Stephen and Peter—J.S. Hovnanian & Sons continues this building tradition with a company-wide commitment to providing the BEST in Quality Construction and Customer Service for each and every one of our homeowners.

The Best Homes

Over the years, we've taken an extraordinary interest in learning about how our homeowners live, and translating that understanding into smarter designs, more advanced home systems and superior construction standards. Before ever starting a foundation, we scrutinize every plan to determine how to build the most value possible into every home. It is this painstaking process, of challenging every aspect of the home that differentiates your new J.S. Hovnanian & Sons home from the rest. For this, as well as winning many "Model of the Year" and "Community of the Year" awards and both being named Builder of the Year, J.S. Hovnanian & Sons has earned the recognition of our customers with multiple Commitment to Excellence Awards. We have also been designated a Diamond Builder, a recognition given to less than 1% of builder's nationwide, from the industry's leading new home warranty specialist.

The Happiest Homeowners

Not only do we build the best homes, but when you buy a J.S. Hovnanian & Sons home, you'll witness first-hand our 11-point Customer 1st™ program, one of the first and most comprehensive customer-minded programs in the industry. Throughout the homebuying process and beyond, we will delight you with an unparalleled dedication to the construction and servicing of your brand new home. Why do we try so hard? Put simply, the J.S. Hovnanian & Sons family cares deeply about our homeowners and the neighborhoods we build for them. In fact, our dedication to our customers and their homes has earned us the award for "Highest Customer Satisfaction and Highest Home Quality among New Home Builders in the Philadelphia Market Area" according to J.D. Power & Associates. Let our family's tradition be a part of your family's next home.
