Texas Top Home Builders – December 2023

Last week, we reviewed the latest construction permit data available from HBW to report on new residential construction in Texas; through the reports, we found there were approximately 6,110 new residential construction permits with a total value of $1.8 billion added to the HBW database for the Lone Star State last month. Today, we are taking a look at the same construction data reports to identify the leading contractors that held the highest volume of housing starts last month.  And while each Metro area of Texas has its own unique lineup of leading home builders, there have been two major players in the market month after month – From across the four major areas reviewed (Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio), both Lennar Homes and D.R. Horton continue to carry the highest concentration of new residential construction activity, having approximately 706 and 565 permits on record respectively for the one-month period.

Here is a closer look at the top five builders for each Metro area in Texas based on the total number of permits on record with HBW during the month of December 2023:
