David Weekley Homes was recently listed as the largest privately-held home builder in America and 18th overall, according to BUILDER magazine’s BUILDER 100 List. The BUILDER 100 list is comprised of both private and public builders and identifies the top home builders in America by annual closings, gross revenue, and rate of change year over year, as well as information about where and what they build.
Professional Builder has been compiling its list of Housing Giants for over 40 years. Firms that wish to apply for the list must complete a questionnaire. In addition, Professional Builder retains the services of researchers who contact large building firms who have not volunteered information in order to cast the widest net for the biggest home building firms. The rankings are based on new home revenue only. Firms with less than 30 starts cannot be included in the ranking.
