D. R. Horton is BuilderOnline.com's 2017 Builder of the Year

Operational excellence drives Horton's success.

Lots are like people: they're made up of identical basic elements but wind up very different. An A lot essentially is the same stuff as any other piece of dirt in residential real estate. It's a slice of ground, the dimensions of which range across varying amounts of square footage, and, like any other homesite in the detached single-family for-sale world, an A lot normally fronts a street, with one or more properties surrounding its borders.

Which doesn't, of course, account for why A lots tend to carry nearly mystical powers and, with some, such astronomical prices, this being home building's and residential real estate's most-finite of necessary resources. Unlike Coca-Cola or Apple or Nike or American Express, which offer fiercely consistent user experiences of their brands everywhere on the planet, A lots are different, and different from one another, wherever you go.

A typical home builder looks at an A lot as opportunity, given the alternative choices. It's one of residential real estate's best shots to expand the distance between input and indirect costs and the ultimate price tag on a home. This lends a sense of optimal value to a home buyer, and it shows up as a healthy gross margin on the sale to the builder. So, if the typical home builder can snag an A lot—or 50, or 3,000 of them—with capital that doesn't have to yield returns immediately, they'll normally go all in and do it.

Crown Communities Is Now D.R. Horton, America’s Builder

Updated_DRH_newarticle2_jpgHomebuilder Unites Under Nationally Recognized Brand in All Markets

ATLANTA, GA (June 16, 2016) - Crown Communities announces it is changing its name and will now be branded as D.R. Horton in all markets including Atlanta, Greenville and Augusta following the conversion in the Columbia, SC market earlier this year. As America's largest homebuilder for fourteen years in a row by volume, the strength and recognition of D.R. Horton as "America's Builder" will now be evident with the consistent use of the D.R. Horton logo and website throughout all markets.
Crown Communities began as a small, family-owned, Atlanta-based homebuilder over two decades ago and succeeded in becoming the largest builder in the Atlanta Metro, in addition to having significantly sized operations in surrounding areas throughout the Southeast. In May 2014, Crown Communities was acquired by D.R. Horton and became part of their family of brands. With a shared philosophy of offering quality new homes in desirable locations at the best value, re-branding as D.R. Horton is the next step in developing a cohesive marketing effort.
In addition, Crown's Monarch Series communities will be marketed as Express Homes, a D.R. Horton Company. Express Homes is one of the nation's leading homebuilders for affordable homes with locations in 17 states and 51 markets. These communities will continue to focus on first-time homebuyers, offering both value and the quality you would expect in a newly constructed home.

The transition of Crown Communities in Atlanta, Greenville and Augusta will begin with an online presence, community signage and digital marketing of active and new communities.

D.R. Horton, "America's Builder," has been building families beautiful homes in desirable locations for more than 35 years. Ranked America's largest homebuilder for fourteen years in a row by volume, D.R. Horton has built more than 535,000 homes with quality, functionality, value, and style in mind. For more information about D.R. Horton, please visit http://www.drhorton.com. D.R. Horton is an equal housing opportunity builder.

Senoia Selected Again for Next Idea House

Senoia Idea HouseLast year Senoia was the site of Southern Living Magazine’s 2010 Idea House. It was a first for the area and the magazine’s first time to feature a brownstone. Now history is repeating itself with the Nov. 15 announcement that Senoia will feature Southern Living’s 2012 Idea House. It is the first time the magazine has chosen a home in the same community for a second Idea House.
“Great films deserve even better sequels, and we just couldn’t resist the opportunity to bring our readers the next installment in the renaissance story of Senoia,” said Kristen Payne, Executive Marketing Director, Southern Living. “We’re heeding the calls to serve up more from the town of our award-winning 2010 Idea House.”
Historic Development Ventures co-owner and Raleigh/Riverwood Studios partner Scott Tigchelaar said the 2012 Idea House, in the style of a Southern country farm house, is located at 57 Morgan Street adjacent to the Gin Property where last year’s Idea House is located. Renovation on the nearly 4,000 square-foot 2012 Idea House is underway and will be ready for the opening next June. The two-story house was built in the early 1800s and was constructed with wooden pegs and featured hand-hewn beams. It is one of the oldest homes in the city, Tigchelaar said.
The Morgan Street house came with the Gin Property re-development site and we wanted to find a way to save it, Tigchelaar said.
“This is the first time Southern Living has come back to the same location. To have such a highly read magazine choose Senoia the first time around was an incredible honor,” said Tigchelaar. “But to have them come back again is amazing and beyond our wildest expectations.”
Tigchelaar said Southern Living used to feature three Idea Houses at a time. That changed to two homes featured last year, with one in Louisiana and the other in Senoia.
“In 2012 the magazine will feature only one Idea House, the one in Senoia,” Tigchelaar said. “And we expect next year to break the record for visitors.”
Making the Nov. 15 announcement, Southern Living said the 2012 Idea House will be a revival of an early 19th century cottage-style farmhouse “whose makeover has been masterfully designed by the noted team of architects and place makers at Historical Concepts from the neighboring Peachtree City.
Completing the team is John Bynum Custom Homes, Inc., one of the Atlanta area’s premier custom home builders, nationally-recognized interior design firm, Tracery Interiors and Senoia’s Historic Development Ventures, LLC.” CONTINUE READING >>
