Although Census Bureau data show that approximately 501,000 new single-family homes were sold in 2015, an increase of 14.5 percent over 2014’s sales and the highest annual tally the U.S. has seen in eight years, the climbing numbers still don’t seem like cause for celebration for many of the nation’s builders. That may be because the gains seem particularly hard won this past year, with the ongoing scarcity of land and labor becoming an even larger problem as companies attempt to ramp up growth. 

Professional Builder’s annual list of the nation's largest builders has been released and, as usual, D.R. Horton took the top spot. In fact, the three largest builders all retained their usual places with Lennar coming in at number two and PulteGroup in third.

In Kane County, Ill., a developer courting one of three neighboring family farms to sell land told one farmstead’s  owner, “The next time you go by this place, you won’t even recognize it.” The developer thought he was impressing the farmer with his vision to transform fields into a thriving suburban community. But to the farmer, whose family had tilled these acres since the early 1900s, the developer was inferring that he was going to wipe out the farmer’s heritage. Jane Strickland had better luck.
