Leading real estate developers in the US

The US has seen a housing boom for the past 8 years and there’s no sign of it stopping anytime soon, with house prices continuing to rise in all of the United States’ largest cities. According to Global Property Guide (GPG), the costs associated with buying a property in the US are low to moderate and there are only minor restrictions on foreign ownership of real estate. However, the US is also experiencing a limited supply of properties on the market as people increasingly look to buy instead of rent. This is where it helps to take a look at some of the largest real estate developers in the US, so you can learn who the most trusted and the most highly reviewed construction companies are nationwide, which, in turn, can help you find the perfect investment whether you are a US resident or a foreign national. 

In this article, we’ll explore the largest real estate developers in the US. Using data from Statista, the chart below shows the leading real estate developers based on the number of residential units they started construction on in 2021. These developers, and many more, are covered in more detail in our tables.
We’ll also explore developers focused in four of the best states for real estate investments: California, Florida, Texas, and Colorado. These states are popular migration destinations in the US, each with bustling urban centers, smaller rural towns, and diverse communities. As reported by the National Association of Realtors (NAR), Florida stands out as a favorite destination for families, while California and Texas tend to be preferred destinations for individuals.   

The developers in the following tables are organized from largest to smallest in terms of their number of completed projects. The companies’ headquarter, number of completed projects, project types, and google review are included. Some developers don’t offer the exact number of completed projects, so the number is an estimated value and, in some cases, may only include featured projects.

Nationwide developers

We consider developers to be nationwide if they build in three or more states. Otherwise, if they build in two or fewer states they are included in the respective sections below.

The top 25 largest multifamily developers from the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) are included, as well as additional nationwide developers.

California

California is a top contender for those interested in investing in real estate. It’s nicknamed the Golden State due to the large deposits of gold that spurred the Gold Rush, but it could also refer to its year-round sunshine and the sunny attitudes of its residents. California has a strong job market, a favorable property tax, and a high demand for rental properties, all of which make it an ideal location for property buyers. Some of the most popular cities for real estate include Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, San Jose, Sacramento, Oakland, Malibu, Oxnard, and Riverside.

Florida

Florida is known as the Sunshine State and is popular among snowbirds seeking to escape cold northern winters by vacationing in the south. It has thousands of miles of coastline with Gulf Coast beaches that are coveted vacation destinations. From the beaches to its one-of-a-kind theme parks, it’s clear to see why Florida is such a popular location for families. Pair this all with low income and property taxes, and you have a great location for real estate investment. Some of the most popular cities for real estate include Miami, Orlando, Jacksonville, St. Petersburg, Tampa, Naples, North Port, and Ocala.

Texas

Texas is one of the largest states and therefore provides a variety of living environments when it comes to size and climate. This also means that there’s plenty of undeveloped land and a healthy construction industry. One of the biggest pros of investing in Texas is the absence of a state income tax, but it is also known for lower than average housing prices and cost of living. Some of the most popular cities for real estate include Austin, Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, and Fort Worth.
