)-- United-Bilt Homes (UBH), one of the most popular custom homebuilders in its five state service area, has been named among the nation’s top 100 builders in Builder Magazine’s Annual Builder 100 Rankings for 2011. Climbing the ranks from No. 61 in 2010 to No. 56, UBH experienced a 15% revenue increase and 6% increase in the number of homes built. United-Bilt is bucking the trend in the housing industry by continuing to build on its long history of success. Established in 1958, United-Bilt has built more than 35,000 homes to date and has 22 sales offices in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Missouri. Strong vertical integration, bringing building materials, house plans, financing, and construction all together under one corporate entity, may be the most important factor in the half century of success and stability.
What has helped United-Bilt grow in a challenging economy? There are a number of factors:
- UBH specializes in on-your-land construction of new homes.
- UBH offers competitive cost-per-unit pricing.
- UBH operates its own lumberyard.
- UBH purchases materials in bulk directly from suppliers.
- UBH offers 100% in-house financing with zero down payment and no payments for six months to qualified buyers.
But people who know owner Don Pitts and his employees (many of whom are family) also point to the United-Bilt tradition of hard work and integrity. “Multiple generations of families have built with us over the years,” says President, Don Pitts. “I believe that’s because we don’t just build homes – we build relationships.”
United-Bilt is an A+ accredited company with the Better Business Bureau and has also received top ratings for company generosity.
