Texas Top 20 Residential Builders of 2015

Just as our monthly “Top Builders” reports highlight the busiest builders in Texas, the start of a new year provides the opportunity to gain perspective on the builders that led residential construction throughout the entire year. Texas was busy in 2015.  From the booming real estate market in Dallas and the countless new communities being developed, HBW was tracking every new construction permit and the many builders breaking ground in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin.  As reported earlier this month in the Annual Review, residential construction jumped 13% in Dallas and 8% in San Antonio in comparison to 2014.

The “Top 20 Builders” report is based on those builders with the most housing starts on file in the HBW database.  Those starts are based on the new residential permits that were pulled throughout the year, with the top companies having the most new permits on record.

The #1 residential builder for the year comes as no surprise.  D.R. Horton is all over construction in Texas, and they came in the #1 spot for total new residential construction permits for 2015.  The top 20 across the state are as follows:

  1. D.R. Horton
  2. Lennar Homes
  3. Pulte Homes
  4. KB Homes
  5. K. Hovnanian Homes
  6. Beazer Homes
