Editorial Feature: Professional Builder Announces Rankings for Its 2013 Housing Giants Report

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL--(Marketwired - May 28, 2013) - Professional Builder magazine, the nation's leading business publication for the home building industry, continues its 40-plus years of ranking the nation's largest builders with the May issue's 2013 Housing Giants Report.

D.R Horton Inc., Fort Worth, Texas posted $4.6 billion in 2012, making it the top- grossing homebuilder in new home revenue and closings amongst the Report's 242 selected builders. Last year's leader, PulteGroup Inc., Broomfield Hills, Mich, came in as a close second for its 2012 revenue generation. The Housing Giants Report also profiles fast-growing builders that rose from the middle of the pack and what they did to survive and thrive in the tough economy.

Additional coverage includes number-crunching analysis of builders' responses to a survey on their expectations and challenges; a pullout poster with state-by-state closings data, median asking price and year-over-year percent change from the Trulia Price Monitor; and building permit numbers and charts ranking the Top 25 land sellers and builders of single-family and multi-family homes.

Professional Builder's May cover story features an exclusive interview with Taylor Morrison's CEO, Sheryl Palmer, elaborating on her company's rationale for going public and its strategies for taking on the challenges and opportunities of a recovering market.
