Texas Top Home Builders – August 2021

A review of leading home builders in Texas based on total new permits on record with HBW for the month of August 2021

In HBW’s monthly review of its construction data reports, more than 8,800 new permits with a total construction value of $2.3 billion were reported for the four major metro areas of Texas last month.  In addition to providing permit totals and construction values for each region, HBW’s construction data reports also offer insight into the contractors that are actively pulling permits each month.

For the purpose of this post, we are focusing on the top ranked contractors for each of the four metro areas of Texas (Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Austin).  Builder ranking is based on the total number of new residential permits on record with HBW for the month of August. 

Statewide, there are two home builders that have continued to rank high on the charts and take the lead with a greater volume of housing starts.  Both D.R. Horton and Lennar Homes are ranked as the leading home builders in Texas month after month, and in August they held nearly 20 percent of all new residential construction activity, having 910 and 789 new permits on record respectively.

Here is a look at the five leading contractors by area, their total permits and average value of new home construction projects on record with HBW last month:
