Essex Homes Named a Top Builder

Essex Logo 2-1-14Essex Homes was just named to BUILDER Magazine’s annual Top 100 Builder list. With 500 closings and revenue of $137 million, Essex Homes is one of only three Columbia home builders that made the list and is ranked at No. 78 in the nation.

Each year, BUILDER ranks the top 100 homebuilding companies and publishes the BUILDER 100 list, which is compiled from data collected by BUILDER magazine via direct survey of the nation’s top builders.

In addition to being included on BUILDER’s Top 100 list, Essex Homes was also included on the list of Top 10 Home Builders in Greater Columbia. This list is based on the dollar amount of homes closed and sold for the 2014 calendar year.

Essex Homes is based in Lexington, South Carolina, a suburb of the state’s capital Columbia, and has been building new homes in Columbia and the surrounding areas for more than 20 years. Essex Homes is also now building in Charlotte, North Carolina and the greater Charlotte metro area, and plans to continue to grow as a regional new home builder and leader in the new home industry by expanding its market share throughout the Southeast.

The Builder 100 is an exclusive ranking of the nation’s top 100 builders, and this year’s list is made up of a diverse group of companies, from perennial powerhouses to hard-working newcomers. The list includes all types of builders, from entry level, move-up, or active adult residences to firms selling multimillion-dollar luxury mansions.

The BUILDER 100 list is made up of private and public builders and identifies the top home builders in the U.S. by annual closings and gross revenue, and provides information about where and what types of home each company builds. BUILDER magazine has conducted the survey and compiled the BUILDER 100 list since 1984.
