D.R. Horton Named 2017 Builder of the Year by Builder Magazine

For the second year in a row, a WaterGrass homebuilder has been named Builder of the Year! In 2016, CalAtlantic Homes took the honor. And for 2017, D.R. Horton has won!

DRHortonLogoIn an article announcing the title, Builder Magazine digs into what makes D.R. Horton a top builder in the country. It’s no wonder they found the easy answer to that question—D.R. Horton has claimed the top spot in the Builder 100 by Builder Magazine for 15 years.

Builder Magazine cites various differentiators between D.R. Horton and other homebuilders. A few major things that helped D.R. Horton rise to the best of the best (after only 6 years since the last time they were named) include:

  • D.R. Horton ranks number 1 in 13 of home building’s top 50 markets.
  • They rank top five in 30 of the top 50 markets.
  • Operational excellence: revenues topping $13.4 billion, gross margins of over 20%, and overhead cost in the low-9% range.
  • Nationally, D.R. Horton has 7.5% of the single family new home market

And none of the above happened by accident, but rather because of their focus on and sense of what homebuyers want. D.R. Horton’s founder, Don Horton, says “We have captured industry-leading market share by responding to the needs and wants of America’s home buyers and by introducing new brands to our product line.” He goes on to discuss their solid team, strong lot position, and ability to offer homes to a diverse customer base.
