Texas Top Home Builders – February 2020

A review of residential construction permit data in Texas and the home builders leading the way during the month of February 2020

As published on the blog earlier this week, Texas experienced a 5 percent month-over-month increase in new home construction during the month of February.  While we already reviewed the total amount of permits and counties where new home construction was on a high, today we are looking at the leading home builders behind those figures.

In Houston, Dallas and Austin, two companies continue to lead new residential construction – D.R. Horton and Lennar Homes.  Last month, both mega builders (D.R. Horton and Lennar Homes) took top placement for carrying the greatest volume of housing starts, having 874 and 426 new residential construction permits on record with HBW respectively.  In San Antonio, Continental Homes (50 permits) and Fieldstone Homes (46 permits) ranked as the top builders for the one-month period.

From a regional perspective, leading home builders varied by area last month… The top five home builders in each major Metro Texas area, based on new permits on record with HBW, are as follows:
