Top Texas Home Builders – May 2023

As published on the HBW blog last week (Texas Residential Construction Report – May 2023), there were 9,000 new residential construction permits with a total construction value in excess of $2.5 billion on record for Texas last month.  While the previous post highlighted the total number of permits available in the HBW database for the given period, this week we are reviewing the leading home builders driving the latest construction figures in the four major metro areas of the Lone Star State (Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio).

Month after month, D.R. Horton has led new home construction in Texas.  During the month of May, the mega-builder had approximately 925 new permits on record from the combined areas of Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio, and it landed as the leading builder in two out of four areas reviewed.

Another top-ranked home builder that consistently makes its mark in Texas is Lennar Homes.  Last month, Lennar Homes had nearly 885 new residential construction permits on record with HBW from the four Texas areas reviewed, and it landed on the top five list in all four regions.

As each area of Texas has its own unique construction patterns and local contractors, the volume of new residential construction permits varies for each contractor and region.  For this reason, here is a look at the top five home builders by metro area (based on total # of new permits) last month:
