Richardson Housing Group and Richport Properties, Inc. have merged construction operations to form Richbuilt LLC, a next generation home building company. With over 70 years of homebuilding experience between the two companies, Richbuilt offers owners of lots a full service residential general contracting operation to manage its communities. When complete, lot owners get a competitive well built home to sell, while Richbuilt receives the benefit of contracting fee income.
“With the economic downturn, 140,000 developed lots are currently sitting vacant,” said Partner, Rick Porter. “The only viable market for these lots is a homebuyer. However, many of the owners of these lots are not in the business of building houses- most are now investors, lenders and even municipalities. It’s a win for both sides. Richbuilt recognizes the paradigm shift occurring in the ownership of developed lots – whether publicly or privately owned. ”
Richbuilt not only offers expertise and knowledge to finish and manage partially completed subdivisions, it also works with the municipalities to insure code compliance and safety.
“We are in a new era of homebuilding and must develop new ways to service housing customers,” said Managing Partner, Mark Richardson. “Homeowners deserve the warranty and integrity of a solid builder. When the community owner cannot deliver this experience, then we can step in to provide the homeowners the new home they deserve regardless of who owns the lot.”
Richbuilt has the production expertise and capacity to provide contracting services anywhere in the Northeast quadrant of Atlanta from I-20 to Ga. 400. If a builder with reduced staffing owns a house that needs completing, that builder can outsource the construction to Richbuilt. If a developer needs a subdivision completed, Richbuilt can provide development services, updated market studies and house designs based on that study to complete the community. For bankers and investors, Richbuilt can complete site analysis, determine house compatibility, as well as determine municipality compliance.
Richbuilt LLC draws from the strengths of two very similar homebuilders. Both companies have enjoyed 35 years of success by catering to the quality first and second time home buyer. Both companies have built their reputations on helping to improve the homebuilding industry through activity in over 30 different organizations including being inducted in the Georgia Homebuilders Hall of Fame. Partners Richport and Richardson are both family businesses coming from several generations of brick masons, developers and builders.
