Florida Top Home Builders – October 2022

A review of the top ranked home builders for new construction in Florida during the month of October

Earlier this week, we reviewed HBW’s latest construction data reports and reported that there were approximately 6,870 new residential construction permits with a total value in excess of $2.2 billion in the Sunshine State during the month of October. Today, we will be using the same construction reports to filter through the hundreds of contractors with new permits on record and identify those with the greatest amount of new construction activity during the one-month period.

From a statewide perspective, there were three home builders that had a stronghold on the market – D.R. Horton, Lennar Homes, and Pulte Homes carried a combined total of approximately 2,050 new permits in October, reflecting nearly 30 percent of all new residential construction permits on record for the state. The total permits for each of the mega builders are as follows:

1 – D.R. Horton (986 permits)

2 – Lennar Homes (651 permits)

3 – Pulte Homes (412 permits)

When breaking the reports down further, and by region, the leading home builders vary based on geographical location. Here is a closer look at the top five home builders in each of the five major regions of Florida (Southwest, Tampa, Southeast, Orlando, Jacksonville) during the month of October 2022:
