Tampa new homesThank you, thank you, thank you! Because of your support, the Tampa Bay Business Journal recently named Florida home builder Highland Homes as the number two homebuilder in the Tampa area! This is our second year so close to the top, and we are thrilled to be able to provide so many new home owners with homes and the American dream.

The annual ranking is based on the number of 2009 closings in Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk and Sarasota counties. The TBBJ lists our three most popular communities during that time:

•    Ayersworth Glen in Wimauma is a master planned community with distinct neighborhoods of single-family homes centered around a community center with swimming pool. Homes have three to five bedrooms and are priced from the $120,000s.

•    Enclave at Imperial Lakes features amenities that create the ideal Florida lifestyle, including a community pool, clubhouse and golf course. The Enclave includes three-, four- and five-bedroom homes priced from the $120,000s.

•    Stonewood, located in North Lakeland, offers a country setting in a convenient location. With just 78 homes in the entire community, we have only a few homesites remaining. Stonewood offers homes from three to five bedrooms, and they are priced from the $130,000s.

Of course, we have about 20 additional Central Florida new home communities, and each home buyer in each community contributes to our success. We may be #2 on the TBBJ list, but our homebuyers are definitely #1!
