Texas-based homebuilding giant D.R. Horton posted strong sales in the second quarter, with orders up 22 percent from the same time last year. The builder’s revenue was also up substantially as buyers continue to connect with home offerings from the largest homebuilder in the nation at communities like South San Antonio’s Mission del Lago.
A strong San Antonio real estate market, a bustling economy, and impressive growth on the SouthSide have helped spur sales at this popular masterplanned community, where D.R. Horton is among two national builders featured.
Fourteen floorplans from the builder’s Patriot White Collection are offered, with three to five bedrooms, two to three baths, and 1,584 to more than 3,000 square feet.
New home plans are presented in both one and two stories with modern amenities, bright kitchens, large gathering areas, and ample bedrooms. Homebuyers also have numerous customizing options including lofts, additional bedrooms, studies, extended dining areas, covered patios, and second master suites, per plan.
A new product line launched in 2013, called D.R. Horton Express, has become a popular option for D.R. Horton throughout the builder’s communities. This entry-level offering for first-time buyers and young families offers spacious, modern floorplans with 1,400 to more than 2,600 square feet and affordable price points from the $140s at Mission del Lago.
“In late 2013, D.R. Horton started its Express brand of entry-level homes. By last quarter, Express had grown to account for 19% of the builder’s orders, meaning D.R. Horton sold 1,975 Express homes in those three months, mostly in Texas, Florida and the Carolinas,” a sign that “entry-level sales are rebounding,” said the Wall Street Journal.
D.R. Horton has been at the top of Builder magazine’s prestigious Builder 100 list for 12 consecutive years. The Builder 100 list recognizes the top builders throughout the country. Buyers who grew up on the SouthSide and employees of local large companies like the San Antonio Toyota Plant, the mixed-use Brooks City Base, the new Texas A&M University campus, and Eagle Ford Shale-related companies such as Halliburton and Schlumberger are embracing D.R. Horton’s award-winning homes at Mission del Lago.
The SouthSide’s favorite masterplanned community provides a warm, neighborly spirit, and an ideal location just five minutes from IH-37 and 15 minutes to downtown, offering easy commutes nearly anywhere in the city, yet with a scenic, serene setting that feels peaceful and community amenities including the 18-hole Mission del Lago Golf Course.
