Mid-tier or second cities have caught the eye of Millennials and developers over the last decade. Cities, such as Fort Worth, Colorado Springs, Sacramento, and Jacksonville, have experienced a noticeable uptick in growth. Second city suburbs present an opportunity for home builders to thrive in an otherwise tough land acquisition and labor market.
Three firms were honored at last year’s Housing Leadership Summit as the fastest-growing builders of 2017. California builder Comstock Homes, private builder Wade Jurney Homes, and public builder AV Homes were recognized for their impressive growth and new home sales in 2017.
