• Although the bulk of McCar Homes' 58-year history has been as an Atlanta-area builder, business now stretches into the Carolinas and Florida. In 2005, the family-owned builder entered Tampa, Fla., and in 2006, it started operations in Jacksonville.
  • Mostly a move-up builder, the company's sweet-spot product is a roughly 3,000-square-foot home on slab, priced from $240,000 to $250,000.
  • The builder estimates that closings will reach approximately 2,600 in 2006, up from 2,268 in 2005 and 1,897 in 2004.
  • Bottom Line CEO Keith McSwain says his focus going forward is to be “cautiously aggressive” and expand organically. He says the company's well prepared if the housing market takes a dip, because he's already got processes in place to better manage levels of inventory, tighten efficiencies, make smarter land purchases and keep them off the books, and control debt to equity. “These are the best times for a builder there's ever been,” McSwain says. “I'd like to think we've taken advantage of it.”
