A review of Florida home builders leading the state for new residential construction during the month of February 2020
Earlier this week, we reviewed new residential construction permits for Florida and noted that there were 5,665 housing starts with a total construction value in excess of $1.5 million added to the HBW database for Florida during the month of February 2020. Today, we are breaking down those figures even further to identify the leading home builders throughout the state based on the total number of new residential construction permits on record with HBW for the one-month period.
As per usual, mega builders D.R. Horton and Lennar Homes dominated the new home construction market last month, having 784 and 687 new permits on record respectively. Both builders ranked in the top two spots of each region, with the exception of the southeast where GL Building Corp took the lead.
