Mergers + Acquisitions

Consolidation: Swift and Massive

The question is not if the industry will consolidate, but rather how much and how fast

Consolidation Is Temporary

The contention that the top 20 home builders will soon produce 75% of all new single-family homes is hard to fathom.

High Volume, High Profit

For the 105 large Giants, bottom-line improvement is linked closely with market strategies dependent on operational efficiencies only dreamed of a decade ago.

Striking a Balance

Among the 150 companies occupying the middle of the Giant 400 — those with housing revenue of $56 million to $145 million — are market leaders experiencing high levels of throughput and a good return on assets.

Expansion Model: Neumann Homes Inc. (No. 78)

Already a large, well-established builder in the Chicago suburbs, Neumann Homes is hitting the big city.

Legacy Partners Residential Inc. (No. 56)

This Foster City, Calif.-based multifamily builder shows the power of the apartment sector by landing at No. 56, completing 1,463 rental units in 2001 with a market value of $297.5 million.

Tarragon Realty Investors (No. 70)

Publicly traded Tarragon, based in New York City but concentrating its operations mostly in Florida, made one of the biggest moves on the Giants list, rocketing from No. 285 last year to 70.

Respect for Regional Tastes: Palmetto Traditional Homes LLC (No. 251)

The little things that make a home unique to its geographic location make Palmetto Traditional Homes of Columbia, S.C., stand out.


MoenStone granite composite kitchen sinks resist heat as high as 535 degrees, the company says, as well as scratching, chipping and staining.
