Local Home Builder Plans to Open at Least Eight New Communities in the Central Valley This Year
VISALIA, Calif. – San Joaquin Valley Homes (SJV Homes) posted a record year in 2020, closing 513 homes, selling out three existing communities and starting construction on 485 new homes despite the challenges and restrictions of doing business during the pandemic.
SJV Homes was the most active homebuilder in Tulare and Kings counties last year, with more building permits pulled than any of its competitors in the Valley, including some of America’s top public homebuilders.
Visalia-based SJV Homes has been building new homes in Tulare, Fresno, Kings and Kern counties since 2013. It pulled 457 permits in 2020 – almost twice as many as its closest competitor, according to data provided by the Construction Monitor, which tracks building records nationwide.
“In the seven years since SJV Homes was founded, we have grown steadily by providing more affordable housing in the Valley while supporting the communities where we build,” said Joe Leal, company co-founder. “To date we have sold more than 2,600 homes. Our goal for 2021 is to open as many as eight new neighborhoods in the Central Valley.”
Last year SJV Homes broke through to the prestigious Top 100 List by Builder magazine, an industry recognized ranking of homebuilding companies in the United States, which is dominated by large private and public builders.
The following is a breakdown of SJV Homes’ current communities:
Tiffany Ranch, 78 units, Visalia
Greystone, 187 units, Visalia
Vista Robles, 138 units, Dinuba
Brighton, 165 units, Tulare
Kensington, 244 units, Tulare
Ashton Park, 93 units, Visalia (sold out)
Cambria, 80 units, Porterville (sold out)

Upcoming SJV Homes neighborhoods are Arbor Gates and Cameron Court in Visalia; San Rio in Reedley; Hidden Oaks and Sterling Oaks in Hanford; Pheasant Court and Quail Run in Delano; and Cypress Park in Tulare.
All these projects are a joint venture partnership with Presidio Residential Capital, a San Diego-based real estate management company. To date, SJV Homes and Presidio have partnered on 29 projects totaling more than 3,700 units.
