Central Florida New HomesRecently, the Tampa Bay Business Journal and the Orlando Business Journal released top home builder lists, and Highland Homes is pleased to once again be recognized as one of the top home builders in these regions.

Based on number of closings in 2013, Highland Homes ranked No. 7 on the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Top Home Builders List. In 2013, we closed 272 homes in the Tampa Bay area region (Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Polk and Sarasota counties) to accomplish this ranking. Of the 24 home builders on the list, we are one of just a handful who is also based in Tampa Bay – as a local and privately-owned company, it is an honor to be ranked so successfully against larger, national companies.

In Central Florida, the Orlando Business Journal recently released its Midyear report of Central Florida’s top 20 homebuilders based on closings in the first half of 2014. On this list, we ranked No. 16 with 119 closings throughout metro Orlando (Orange, Seminole, Osceola and Lake counties, plus northeast Polk and southwest Volusia counties) in the first six months of this year. Overall, the first half of 2014 was positive for new home construction and the top 20 home builders accounted for 78.5 percent of all home closings in metro Orlando.

We are honored to have helped so many Central Florida and Tampa Bay home buyers accomplish their dream of homeownership, and we expect 2014 to be even more successful than last year.
