A house builder is someone who builds houses for a living or as a business. They are often known as property developers, who construct both residential buildings for individuals to exact specifications, through to new housing estates.

House builders often work independently, employing contractors for services required to complete a project. Three different types of builders are generally known as:

  • Custom home builders who are generally small volume, one-of-a-kind tailored builds.
  • “Spec” house builders are known to buy land, build a house then sell the home – speculating on a return from the build.
  • The third type are known as “Tract” or Production Home Builders/Developers”, who develop large plots of land, which are divided into smaller plots for each house. On the whole, the designs from Tract builders do not change much, as they build properties in large volumes.
