A review of the leading home builders throughout Texas based on new permit activity on record with HBW during the month of May 2021
Earlier this week, we reported on the rise in new residential construction throughout Texas, where we noted a month-over-month increase in housing starts of approximately 34 percent, resulting in 10,370 new permits on record with HBW for the month of May. When taking a deeper dive into HBW’s construction data reports, we are able to identify the contractors and companies that are driving new home construction in the Lone Star State, and within each of the four major metro areas of Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio.
The result: D.R. Horton and Lennar Homes continue to lead in most Texas metro regions. Last month, both home builders carried nearly 20 percent of all new residential construction permits on record, having 1,200 and 729 new permits respectively for the one-month period.
Based on total housing starts on record last month, here is a closer look at the top five home builders in each of the four metro areas of Texas:
Last month, there were nearly 250 contractors with new home construction activity on record in the Dallas area, and the following ranked as the top five for total new permits during the one-month period:
