Highland Homes Named One of the Nation’s Top Home Builders

Tampa, FL, April 08, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Highland Homes is pleased to announce that Builder Magazine has ranked the company #84 on the list of the top 100 home builders in the country, based on 2008 closings. Centrally located in Lakeland, Florida, this father and son business is the only independent Central Florida home builder to make the Builder top 100 list. Currently, Highland Homes is averaging over 50 sales per month, proving that the builder finds success wherever they choose to build. While Highland Homes has over 20 communities throughout Central Florida, they have two extraordinary communities in the Tampa Bay real estate market that appeal to very different market segments.

"The communities are the same distance from downtown, one is south, the other north and each community has specific lifestyle offered to fit a particular buyer segment", says Kathie McDaniel, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Highland Homes.

Ayersworth Glen is located in the Riverview area, and the South Hillsborough County new homes start at $109,900. This community is all about lifestyle with country club amenities featuring one of the largest pools in the areas, a community clubhouse with meeting room, recreational room, and fitness facility. Plus there are biking trails, a sports field and playground area. Buyers looking for affordable living with a country club lifestyle will find this to be the perfect spot. Highland Homes also offers great financing options, including 100% financing for buyers who qualify. The community is just minutes away from a large shopping area and major highways for those who need to be near everything. For more information, call Ed or Ole at 813-938-4810.

The Greens of Hidden Creek is another Highland Homes community in the Tampa area that offers a very different lifestyle. The community is located just outside of Tampa in the country setting of Zephyrhills. The Greens is surrounded by pastureland and conservation areas with nearby golf course communities. Although the community is in a rural setting, it is also just off Morris Bridge Road leading to Fletcher, so within minutes residents are in the heart of Tampa. The University of Tampa is just 20 minutes from the community or with a short commute take I-75 into the downtown area. Home buyers love the quiet setting and the fact that there are no CDD fees. Many communities in the area are CDD communities, which can add over $100 or more to a buyer's monthly payment. By offering Tampa new homes without these fees, home buyers can use their budget to purchase more home at the Greens. Another attractive feature for Highland Homes is their stem wall foundation. The slab is elevated and built up, which gives the community more character. The community has rolling topography, so the homes all look a bit different, rather than a duplication of the houses on either side. The Greens also offers 100% financing for qualified buyers. For more information about the Greens call Lovely or Cheryl at 813-395-8977.

Highland Homes is instrumental in the local, regional and national marketplace for new home builders. They are also setting the pace for another remarkable year and this is obviously a remarkable company looking forward to 2010. Founded in 1996, by Robert J. and Joel Adams the vision of Highland Homes was established with a commitment to excellence and family values. Dedication, strong leadership and personal commitment have made Highland Homes the largest homebuilder in Polk County. Highland Homes has proudly maintained these virtues ever since.
