In a tough competitive national new home’s market, it’s not easy for a company to distinguish themselves as an exceptional homebuilder—we in Charleston are fortunate that several area builders have successfully done just this!  DR Horton Builders and CalAtlantic Homes recently ranked in the top five of Fortune magazine’s “Most Admired” list of new construction homebuilders.  These are companies that have been recognized to have exceptional ideas, strong management and solid long-term strategies.   Their long-term vision and investment has led them to out-performing their national competitors, in particular. Builder Magazine comments on the “Fab Five”: “Toll Brothers, Lennar, D.R. Horton, CalAtlantic, and NVR are among the best-run companies in home building, mostly because they know exactly who they are and who they want to be as organizations, and then they take no prisoners as they aim to be the very best at that.”

D.R. Horton, based out of Texas, has been building homes for over 35 years.  They build with an emphasis on quality and value, highlighting livable floorplans, energy efficiency and a home warranty.  They have been ranked as America’s #1 Builder since 2002 and are the nation’s largest homebuilder.  The company prides themselves on their financial stability (they will be there for their homeowner’s for the long haul) and their selection of livable and reasonably priced floorplans.  D.R. Horton has been building in the Charleston market for over twenty years. Homebuyers can currently find them in Mt Pleasant, Summerville, Moncks Corner, Isle of Palms, North Charleston, Huger and Ladson.  Depending on the community, homebuyers can choose from a variety of exterior designs of homes ranging in size from approximately 1,253 sq. ft. to more than 4100 SF, and featuring from 3 to 7 bedrooms, with numerous options. Prices from $180,000 to over $600,000.

CalAtlantic was formed from the merger of Ryland Homes and Standard Pacific Homes. The end result was 100 years of combined homebuilding experience.  The merger made CalAtlantic the fourth largest homebuilder in the country.  They operate in 41 major markets in 17 states across the country.  They offer their customers innovative home designs, outstanding quality and an unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction.  In the Charleston market you can find them building in Charleston proper, Goose Creek, Hollywood, Johns Island, Mt. Pleasant, North Charleston and Summerville.  They opened their newest community last week in Goose Creek, Brickhope Plantation.  Buyers at Brickhope can tour two decorated model homes and choose from 14 different floorplans. Prices range from the $180’s to $300’s.
