Top Texas Home Builders – January 2022

A review of leading home builders in Texas based on new permit data on record with HBW during the month of January

Last week, we reviewed the latest permit data available from HBW for new residential construction in Texas and found that there were approximately 9,420 new residential construction permits with a total value of nearly $2.6 billion added to the HBW database during the month of January. Today, we are taking a look at the same construction data reports to identify the leading contractors who carried the highest volume of new permits last month.  And while each metropolitan area of Texas has its own unique lineup of leading home builders, there have been and continue to be two major players in the market month after month – From across the four major metro areas reviewed (Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio), both D.R. Horton and Lennar Homes continue to carry the highest concentration of new residential construction activity, having 1,216 and 766 permits on record respectively; this figure reflects more than 20 percent of all new home construction on record for the Lone Star State last month.

Here is a closer look at the top five builders in each major metro area in Texas based on the total number of permits on record with HBW during the month of January 2022:
