Texas Top Home Builders – October 2021

A review of the leading home builders across Texas based on new permits on record with HBW during the month of October 2021

In our most recent post (“Texas Residential Construction Review”), we reviewed new residential construction permit data on record for Texas during the month of October and found that there had been a 4 percent month-over-month increase in new home construction. Using the same HBW construction data reports, today we are taking a deeper dive to identify the leading home builders that are driving residential construction in each of the four metro areas of Texas (Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio).

Statewide, two leading home builders have and continue to dominate the market. D.R. Horton (1,044 permits) and Lennar Homes (468 permits) rank on the top five list in nearly every region reviewed, and combined they are responsible for just about 23 percent of all new home construction listed across Texas for the one-month period.

Here is a look at the top five contractors in each of the four metro areas of Texas based on the total number of new permits recorded by HBW last month:
