Texas Top Home Builders – May 2022

A review of the leading home builders in Texas based on new permits on record with HBW during the month of May 2022

As published on the HBW blog last week (Texas Top Spots for New Home Construction – May 2022), there were nearly 9,500 new residential construction permits with a total value of in excess of $2.6 billion added to the HBW database during the month of May for the Lone Star State.  While the previous post highlighted the Texas regions with the highest concentration of new residential construction activity, this week we are reviewing the leading home builders driving construction in the four major metro areas of Texas (Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio).

One home builder that has consistently dominated the Texas market is D.R. Horton. During the month of May, the mega-builder had approximately 1,365 new permits on record with HBW from the combined areas of Dallas, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio, and it ranked on the top of the charts as the leading builder in three out of four metro areas reviewed.

Another prominent home builder that has consistently held a strong presence in the market is Lennar Homes.  Last month, Lennar Homes had a combined total of more than 850 new residential construction permits on record with HBW from the four metro areas reviewed, and it landed in the top five listing within each of the four regions.

As each region of Texas has its own unique construction patterns and local contractors, the volume of new residential construction activity varies for each contractor by region.  For this reason, we have identified the top five home builders by metro area, as based on the total number of new permits on record for the month of May 2022; those builders are as follows:
