A review of the leading residential construction contractors in Texas based on new permits on record during the month of August 2020
As published on the HBW blog earlier this week, there have been 8,557 new residential construction permits with a total value of approximately $2 billion added to the HBW database for Texas during the month of August 2020 – This figure represents a 45 percent month-over-month increase in new residential construction from the four major metropolitan areas of Texas (Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio).
Since we previously took a dive into the permit data and leading areas for new home construction, today we are going behind the reports to identify the leading contractors and home builders driving new residential construction across the Lone Star State. During the month of August, D.R. Horton continued to be the major leader in new home construction, having 1,450 new permits on record with HBW for the one-month period and ranking #1 for volume of housing starts in the areas of Houston, Dallas and Austin. Following D.R. Horton, Lennar Homes also carried a heavy presence in Texas residential construction last month, having nearly 480 housing starts on record and ranking #1 in the San Antonio area for total new permits.
To gain a better understanding of the leading builders from a regional perspective, we pulled the top five home builders by major metropolitan area as based on total new residential construction permits on record during the month of August – The results are as follows:
