For more than 35 years, D.R. Horton has been delivering quality built and affordable homes throughout the country, making homeownership a reality to more people everyday. Since Donald R. Horton unveiled his first neighborhood in the Dallas/Fort Worth area in 1978, the company’s values, traditions, and mission have remained constant. The only thing that has changed is the builder’s growth across new markets and its lineup of innovative brands.

It has grown throughout the years from a local to a regional homebuilder to ultimately the country’s largest homebuilder. The builder has delivered more than 570,000 homes since opening its first community. D.R. Horton’s success stems from its diverse offerings, with operating divisions in 78 markets and in 26 states as well as selling homes under its other brand names, which include America’s Builder, Emerald Homes, Express Homes, Freedom Homes, and Pacific Ridge Homes.

Superb Home Design

What sets D.R. Horton apart from the rest of the competition is its commitment to providing homebuyers with some of the best home designs that fit their style, budgets, and needs. D.R. Horton’s popular floor plans and home designs display innovative and cutting-edge styles as well as top-notch craftsmanship and energy-efficient construction, which make it a leader in the residential development industry. D.R. Horton has also claimed the number one spot on Builder Magazine’s 100 list since 2002. 

Freedom Homes

Another way D.R. Horton stays ahead of the game is by including attractive features that draw the active adult crowd. The company recently launched a lineup of affordable homes for their active adult brand, Freedom Homes.

The builder’s new brand offers low-maintenance living at an attractive value for active adult homebuyers. Some of the great features include first-floor master suites, open layouts, flex rooms, walk-in closets, gourmet kitchens, abundant storage space, and optional second-story lofts or basements. Freedom Homes is the newest addition to the D.R. Horton family and will be available in popular retirement destinations like Florida, Arizona, Illinois, and Texas.

Express Homes

Not only will these homes offer reasonably priced home designs, but the builder will also include unique amenities that retirees seek in active adult communities. Not only does D.R. Horton build homes for the 55-plus crowd, it also caters to first-time homebuyers. Its other popular brand, Express Homes, has garnered much success due to the brand’s value and quality home designs that offer plenty of customization options.’

New Construction Active Adult Communities

D.R. Horton is always looking for new sites to develop its brand for homebuyers and offer its latest home designs and amenities. Some of the new construction active adult communities by D.R. Horton include Wellspring at Tamarron in Katy, Texas. This active adult neighborhood will be located within the master-planned community of Tamarron and host 109 single-family homes and offer a rich lineup of resort-style amenities.

The Ponds at Cobblestone Park is another active lifestyle community in Blythewood, South Carolina,. It will offer just 297 single-family homes, a luxurious 30,000 square-foot clubhouse, and vibrant social environment.

With so many accomplishments and success stories as well as quality home designs under its belt, it’s easy to see why so many retirees flock to D.R. Horton communities across the country.
