A review of the leading home builders in the Lone Star State based on total new residential construction permits on file with HBW during the month of March 2020
Earlier this week, we reported on new residential construction activity in Texas, where we identified and revealed a 40 percent month-over-month increase in new home construction throughout the combined four major metro areas of Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio. As published in the post, this remarkable boost in new home construction resulted in approximately 8,620 new residential construction permits added to the HBW database for Texas during the one-month period.
