Jimmy Jacobs, which lists homes in five Austin-area subdivisions, moved up one spot to lead the custom builders category. Taylor Morrison, which was not ranked on the list last year, took the top spot in the volume builders section. It lists homes in 11 Austin-area subdivisions, includingSteiner Ranch.
But data from Metrostudy pegs a different company as the top volume builder in Austin.
Fort Worth-based D.R. Horton Inc., which would not submit information for the list, is the top-selling local volume builder, according to Eldon Rude, manager of operations for Metrostudy in Austin. According to Metrostudy data, the builder had 15.4 percent of market share for the 12 months ending June 30.
The top five homebuilders in the custom category are all headquartered in the Austin area, while the top five in the volume category are spread across California, Arizona, Florida, and Kentucky.
