NAHB builders reported strong business growth in 2021 with a median gross revenue of $3.3 million, up 26.9% from the previous year, Eye on Housing reports. The annual revenue posted by NAHB builders in 2021 is an all-time high following steady gains since 2013, and despite major revenue increases, most NAHB builders included in the annual member census remain relatively small businesses.

The average number of housing starts per builder rose 53.9% between 2020 and 2021, an especially strong uptick for both multifamily and single-family builders.

In the 2021 NAHB census, 14 percent of NAHB’s builder members reported a dollar volume of less than $500,000, 13 percent reported between $500,000 and $999,999, 38 percent between $1.0 million and $4.9 million, 15 percent between $5.0 million and $9.9 million, 6 percent between $10.0 million and $14.9 million, and 13 percent reported dollar volume of $15.0 million or more.  In comparison, the Small Business Administration’s size standards classify most types of construction businesses as small if they have average annual receipts of less than $39.5 million.
