CBH Homes (Corey Barton) Built the most homes in Ada County (Boise, Idaho) 2010

There are many ways to rank who the top builder is, but in this particular blog, I am only ranking them based on the number homes that show up as sold in the Intermountain MLS from 1/1/2010 to 12/31/2010.

At least for 2010, it doesn’t matter if you judged based on number of homes built in Ada County or if you judged based on the total value of homes built by a builder in Ada County in 2010, you would reach the same builder – CBH Homes (Corey Barton)!  CBH Homes closed an impressive 194 homes in Ada County in 2010 when all the pundits were saying the market was dead!  Even with an average price of roughly $150,000 that still amounted to over $29 million in home sales in Ada County in 2010.

As a matter of fact, if you add up the total number of homes by the three runner ups, they still don’t total the sheer number of homes that were sold by CBH Homes in Ada County in 2010.  CBH Homes also builds in several other counties and is probably the largest volume builder in Canyon County as well, and probably the largest volume builder in Idaho but I will research and document that in a later blog.

I have personally known Corey Barton for about 18 years when he first started building homes in Columbia Village in Boise back in 1992.  I am pretty sure that I sold one of the first 10 homes Corey ever built as a pre-sold.  Corey and I have had a great working relationship ever sense and has built homes specifically for my clients in Boise, Meridian, Kuna, Nampa and Caldwell.  He even acquired 10 acres that I used to own in Meridian and is the exclusive builder in that community as well.

CBH Homes has grown into the largest the home builder in the state of Idaho with an impressive 10,000+ homes built!  One thing that has made his company so successful is that he embraces the local Realtors even though he has his own brokerage.  Consumers pay the same price buying their homes from a Realtor like me that can represent the buyer’s interest as they would buying from an onsite Realtor that works for his real estate company.  Corey understands the power of the 2,800 Realtors in Ada County working to help sell his inventory.

Corey Barton is still very bullish on the Ada County housing market for 2011.  He currently has 167 Active listings showing up in the MLS effective January 18, 2011.  He also has another  21 that show up that already have offers waiting to close.

I am honored that my company, Progressive Realty Corporation, is one of the preferred Realtor partners of CBH Homes.  Typically, their Realtor’s are on site sales agents working exclusively for CBH Homes, so if someone needs to sell a home to buy one of their properties, they refer business to my company.

To learn more about the process of buying/building a new home, just call me.  I have personally closed brand new homes with over 50 additional builders in the Treasure Valley and would appreciate the opportunity to assist you!  Remember, the builder typically pays all the Realtor fees, so call me today to put your plan of a new home into motion!  Please call me directly at 208-573-0471.

The link that Trey provided covers the whole area and I broke mine down to just Ada County.  Another big difference is his tracks the permits issued while mine was closed with a transfer of title per the MLS.
