Texas Top Home Builders – February 2023

A list of the leading home builders across Texas based on the latest construction permit data on record with HBW for the month of February.

As reported on the blog last week, Texas exhibited a 5 percent month-over-month increase in new home construction during the month of February, resulting in approximately 3,710 new permits with a total construction value of nearly $1.1 billion added to the HBW database. While we have already reviewed the total amount of permits and counties where new home construction was on a high, today we are using HBW’s construction data reports to identify the leading home builders driving construction throughout the Lone Star State.

In Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio, two companies took top placement on the leaderboard for new residential construction – Lennar Homes and D.R. Horton.  Last month, both mega builders (Lennar Homes and D.R. Horton) carried the greatest volume of housing starts, having 532 and 267 new residential construction permits on record with HBW respectively.  In Austin, BBL Building Company (77 permits) ranked as the top builder for the one-month period.

From a regional perspective, leading home builders varied by area last month – Here is a look at the top five home builders in each major Texas area, based on the total number of new permits on record with HBW:
