Essex Homes is one of the premier builders in the Columbia South Carolina real estate market. The builder was founded in 1985 and has grown to sell the most new homes in the greater Columbia area in 2008. In the mid 2000’s Essex Homes came to dominate the Columbia market in the $200,000 to $400,000 price range. In the last couple of years, the builder has also developed new floorplans and neighborhoods starting from the low $100’s that do not sacrifice features or qualities. Pictured here is Essex Homes’ wildly popular Keith floorplan.
