Lakeland, FL, May 30, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Florida homebuilder Highland Homes has recently been honored in two of the country's most prestigious homebuilding lists. In BUILDER Magazine’s Builder 100/Next 100, Highland Homes is ranked 102 in the nation, climbing from last year's rank of 113. In Professional Builder magazine's Housing Giants, the Florida homebuilder jumped from 187 last year up to its current place at 154. While these two lists mainly comprise corporate homebuilders with developments across the country, Highland Homes ranks alongside them as a family-owned business that builds in just eight Florida counties.
Highland Homes is ranked differently on these lists due to the separate criteria of each publication. In BUILDER Magazine’s Builder 100/Next 100, the top 200 home builders in the country are ranked based on the amount of new home closings. Highland Homes has encountered enormous success in 2014 with a total of 378 closings on new homes. With its most successful year since 2007, Highland Homes earned its place as BUILDER magazine's 102nd largest home builder in the U.S. In Professional Builder’s Housing Giants, home building companies are ranked based upon their revenue. With a 30.6 percent increase in revenue over 2013, Highland Homes earned its place as number 154 on this list.
Ranked as one of the largest private home building companies in Central Florida, Highland Homes distinguishes itself by providing highly popular home features and flexible financing options. As a further reflection of this home builder's accomplishments, Highland Homes was honored earlier this year in the University of Florida's Gator 100 List, which recognizes the 100 fastest growing businesses owned or operated by UF alumni based upon five-year revenue.
Highland Homes has continued its meteoric rise in recent years by expanding new home communities throughout Central, North Central, Tampa Bay and Southwest Florida, including four of the 10 fastest-growing metro regions in Florida: Orlando-Kissimmee, Lakeland-Winter Haven, Tampa-St. Petersburg and North Port-Sarasota-Bradenton. To provide buyers in these areas with more affordable options, Highland Homes is offering a $99 move-in special with qualifying financing.

The company was founded in 1996 by father and son, Robert J. and Joel Adams, who have more than 50 years of combined experience building quality homes in Florida and are dedicated to building homes to the highest quality standards for the highest level of satisfaction.
