HH-cropped-logoHighland Homes is thrilled to announce our recent recognitions in Professional Builder’s “Housing Giants” and BUILDER Magazine’s “Builder 100/Next 100,” two of the most prestigious lists for U.S. homebuilders. Our rank on the Housing Giants list jumped to 154 (from 187 last year), while our place on the Builder Magazine Next 100 list jumped to 102 (up from 113). As a local, family-owned home building company who builds in eight Florida counties, we are proud to be recognized and ranked against large corporations who build throughout the country.

The two lists are based on different criteria, which accounts for the difference in rankings. BUILDER Magazine’s Builder 100/Next 100 list ranks the top 200 home building companies in the nation based on their number of new home closings. We’ve made enormous strides in the past year; in fact, 2014 was the best year for Highland Homes since 2007. We helped a total of 378 new homeowners close on their new homes to be recognized as the 102nd largest home builder in the nation.

Professional Builder’s annual Housing Giants list ranks the country’s builders by their revenue. Coming in at #154, we are pleased to report a 30.6-percent increase in total housing revenue over 2013. As an additional reflection of Highland Homes’ continued growth and success, earlier this year we were recognized in the Gator 100 List, which honors the 100 fastest growing companies owned or operated by University of Florida alumni, based on revenues over the past five years.

Highland Homes has made enormous strides towards continued growth in the past few years by expanding our new home communities in Florida, building new homes with sought after features, offering finance options to fit within the budget of most Florida home buyers, and continuing to dedicate ourselves to creating the most satisfying home building experience for our new homeowners. We are pleased to be recognized on these lists for our success as one of the top homebuilders in 2014, and look forward to helping even more new home buyers build their dream home in Florida in 2015.

As one of the largest privately-owned homebuilders in Central Florida, Highland Homes builds new homes in communities throughout Central, North Central, Southwest and Tampa Bay, Florida, including four of the 10 fastest-growing metro areas in Florida: Tampa-St. Petersburg, Orlando-Kissimmee, North Port-Sarasota-Bradenton and Lakeland-Winter Haven.
