Florida’s Top 20 Residential Builders of 2015

fl builder 2015

Earlier this week, our eye was on Texas and its residential builders, where D.R. Horton led for total housing starts in 2015.  When it comes to leaders in residential construction in Florida not much has changed.  When running reports for Florida from the HBW database, D.R. Horton takes the lead not only in Texas but in Florida too.  With more than five thousand new residential construction permits on file in 2015, D.R. Horton drove new residential construction in Florida last year.  In a not too distant second, Lennar Homes was strong with 4,637 housing starts on file, and Pulte Homes held onto the third spot with 2,769 starts.

To gain a more comprehensive perspective on the busiest builders in Florida last year, we have compiled a list of the “Top 20 Builders”.  The Top 20 report is based on those builders with the most housing starts on file in the HBW database.  Results are based on the total number of new residential permits that were pulled throughout the year, with the top companies having the most new permits on record.

The results are in, and here are the Top 20 Florida Residential Builders of 2015:

  1. D.R. Horton
