America's Builder sounds like a lofty title, but it's a goal we work toward every single day. It started in 1978 in Fort Worth, Texas. Don Horton struck a deal to build his first home with only $3,000 and an empty lot to his name. His confidence and commitment to the buyer grew the company where it is today. D.R. Horton is now the number one homebuilder in America and has been since 2002. D.R. Horton is now a Fortune 500 company that sells homes in 87 markets across 29 states. Our company continues to grow across America through acquisitions and expanding market share. Through all this, our founding vision hasn't changed. We believe in homeownership for everyone. Our brands, D.R. Horton, Express, Emerald, and Freedom, grow with our homebuyer. And if they’re not looking to buy just yet, they’re still on our mind. We know that it's important to rent from a trusted builder, so we offer rental properties through DHI Communities. Who better to help with the rest of the home buying journey? Our financial services DHI Mortgage, DHI Title, and D.R. Horton Insurance get buyers into their dream home and protect it for the future. We are America's Builder.
