The most active fighter builders in the country

McDonald Jones Homes, Mojo Homes, Montgomery Homes and Hunter Homes are among the nation’s most active builders, according to new data.

Despite a drop in new home construction this year, the quartet has helped cement the area’s reputation as a development haven by appearing in the top 100 of a national housing report.

Produced annually, the list ranks Australia’s 100 largest homebuilders based on the number of homes started each year.

At the forefront is Hunter-based MJH (NXT Building Group), which operates primarily in New South Wales as McDonald Jones Homes and Mojo Homes.

The group is now the second largest homebuilder nationwide, starting 4,143 builds in the 2021-22 period.

McDonald Jones Homes won the naming rights for Newcastle’s largest sports stadium in October 2016.

MJH Group also ranked second on the national list of top single-detached home builders (3,675) and second on the top semi-detached home builders list, with 468 starts.

It also reaffirmed its place as NSW’s most active builder with 2,556 builds started in the 2021-22 period.

Belmont-based Montgomery Homes climbed 22 places on the national list to rank 66th among homebuilders nationally and 19th in New South Wales, with 216 new builds started.

And for the first time, Heatherbrae’s Hunter Homes reached 70th on the national list, ranking 20th in NSW, with 202 starts.

“Following their inaugural listing, Hunter Homes also made the list of top movers in 2021/22,” said HIA Hunter Executive Director Craig Jennion.

And, as the number of new homes built rose from 88,215 to 74,973 from the previous period, Australian construction groups gained a further 8.8%, securing $34.7 billion in revenue as Construction costs were skyrocketing.
