Premier Houston Builders
There's an old adage in the real estate business: "What are the three most important things in real estate? Location, Location, Location!"
At D.R. Horton, we realize that many things are important to our homebuyers in addition to location. For 30 years, our homes have been designed and built with a focus on quality and value, while including livable floor plans, energy efficient features, a home warranty - and the list goes on.
What else should you consider as you are selecting your new home? We believe the financial strength of the homebuilding company is an important consideration, especially in today's uncertain economic environment. Here are a few items for your consideration in determining our ability to "be there for you," both during the construction process and after you have closed on your new home. In the 30 years since D.R. Horton was founded in 1978, we have delivered more than 385,000 homes to our homebuyers. D.R. Horton, Inc. is a publicly traded company, listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker DHI. For each of the past 7 years, we have delivered more homes to our customers than any other homebuilder in the United States. Our equity at December 31, 2008 was $2.8 billion, among the highest of the public homebuilders. Our cash balance at December 31, 2008 totaled $1.9 billion, one of the highest of the public homebuilders.
