Today we begin the rollout of home building’s most-anticipated rankings with the Next 100, our premier listing of the top 101 to 200 U.S. home builders. This year, 19 new companies appeared on the list, which ranks home builders based on closings. These up-and-coming firms didn't appear on the list last year, but closed enough homes to be added this year.
The past few years have been ones of growth for many builders around the country as the demand for new homes grow, and the competition to get on the list was more fierce this time around, with a threshold of 175 closings, compared with 150 in 2016.
All of the list's new companies are listed below and ranked by closing:
|Builder||No. of closings|
|Garrett Walker Homes||293|
|Boulder Creek Neighborhoods||249|
|Our Country Homes||219|
|Pratt & Associates||207|
|Robert Thomas Homes||191|
|Legacy Homes of Alabama||189|
|Homes by Dickerson||188|
|Pacific Communities Builder||187|
