D. R. Horton is an American construction company, based in Forth Worth, Texas, that focuses on building residential houses.

It is one of the nation’s leading house builders (in terms of units built per year). In the twelve month period ended March 31, 2014, the company closed 25,712 homes.

The company’s signature slogan is “America’s Builder”.

D. R. Horton builds a variety of different styles of homes, with sales prices ranging from $100,000 to over $1,000,000, sold under the names of D.R. Horton, America’s Builder, Emerald Homes and Breland Homes.

The company partners with real estate brokers to sell its homes in 79 metropolitan markets across 27 states in the East, Southeast, South Central, Southwest, West, and Midwest regions of the US.

Its homebuilding business is the most substantial part of D. R. Horton’s business – accounting for approximately 97% of consolidated revenues. However, the company also has other business focuses.
