DR Horton Inc. brings on Truland Homes homebuilding operations in latest acquisition

The acquisition allows Truland’s business to become the company’s biggest supplier

America’s Builder announced the acquisition of Truland Homes, the largest private homebuilder along the Gulf Coast. The homebuilding assets acquired include approximately 263 lots, 155 homes in inventory and 55 homes in sales order backlog.

DR Horton also acquired 156 lots and control of approximately 400 lots through option contracts from Truland affiliates. It also involved 201 lots and control of approximately 260 lots through option contracts from third parties.

During 2022, Truland closed 512 homes with an average home size of approximately 2,340 square feet, and an average sales price of $477,000. DR Horton expects to pay approximately $100 million in cash for the purchase, and the Company plans to combine the Truland operations with its current D.R. Horton platforms in Baldwin County, Alabama and Northwest Florida.

Donald R. Horton, Chairman of the Board, said, “We are excited for the Truland team to join the D.R. Horton family. Their quality building operations and strong presence across the Gulf Coast make Truland a great addition to D.R. Horton’s already strong local market operations.”

Nathan Cox, Founder of Truland Homes, said, “Leading the business over the last 13 years has been the most rewarding experience of my professional career. The amazing team members that took us from our first home to over a billion dollars in total sales are the ones that deserve all the credit. No matter what, they always came through.

“In conjunction with growing Truland Homes over the last decade, DR Horton has afforded us the honor and privilege of becoming the largest lot supplier within their Gulf Coast region. We look forward to continuing as a key lot development partner for D.R. Horton.”
