When this Horton heard a Who, it built the little guy a house. One of the largest homebuilding companies in the US, D.R. Horton constructs single-family homes that range in size from 1,000 sq. ft. to 4,000 sq. ft. and sell for an average price of about $249,400. Texas-based D.R. Horton is active in more than 75 markets in 27 states. The company also provides mortgage, title, and closing services. Like its peers, D.R. Horton saw its sales plummet as a result of the housing market crash, the subprime mortgage crisis, the global credit crunch, and years of overbuilding. With the recovering economy, orders for the company's homes have begun to rebound. Chairman Donald R. Horton founded the business in 1978.
