San Joaquin Valley Homes Reports Brisk Sales in 2022 With the Close of 618 New Homes

February 15th, 2023

San Joaquin Valley Homes (SJV Homes) was by far one of the most active builders in the San Joaquin Valley beating its own record in 2022 by closing 618 homes. It opened four new communities and closed three other neighborhoods. 

SJV Homes once again pulled more building permits than any other builder in both Tulare and Kings counties. In total SJV Homes pulled more than 600 building permits in 2022 – second only to one of the nation’s biggest builders, according to data provided by the Construction Monitor, which tracks building records nationwide.

“We continue to have confidence in the Central Valley market and in our ability to build quality homes to meet the needs of our homebuyers and neighbors,” said Joe Leal, co-founder of SJV Homes.

SJV Homes will open two new home communities in 2023 including Montebella in Dinuba, which opened early February, and Maplewood in Visalia, slated for a spring grand opening. In addition, the local builder expects to close its 3,500th home in March. It presently has homes available in the cities of Delano, Dinuba, Hanford, Kingsburg, Reedley, Tulare and Visalia.

“Like every homebuilder in today’s market, we’ve faced challenges including inflation, supply chain issues and buyers who are cautious about high-interest rates on home mortgages,” Leal continued. “But our hardworking sales team helped more than 600 families find a new home last year. That shows us the folks in the communities where we build trust us and are confident when purchasing one of our beautiful homes in well-located neighborhoods throughout the Valley.”
