Management Discussion
  • The $170.3 million increase in residential units revenue was driven by the 28.4% increase in the number of homes delivered, which was primarily due to an organic increase in the number of active selling communities and an increase in our absorption rate for net new home orders per average active selling community during the year ended December 31, 2020. The
  • 4.4% decline in the average sales price of homes delivered for the year ended December 31, 2020 was attributable to our growth in revenues which was substantially from Trophy Signature Homes and CB JENI Homes—Townhome Division, that both sell homes at average sales prices that are below the average sales price for the Company.
  • Net new home orders increased by 50.0% over the prior year period. The increase reflects the strong performance of our new Trophy brand division, an 11.6% increase in average selling communities as well as the impact of macroeconomic factors such as low interest rates, an influx of millennial first-time buyers and demand for suburban homes from apartment dwellers in response to COVID-19. Our absorption rate per average active selling community increased 33.9% year over year. While uncertainty caused by COVID-19 dramatically slowed net new home orders in late March and April 2020, during May and June 2020, our sales rebounded. Our rate of sales accelerated in both the third and fourth quarters with an increase in net sales of 88.8.% and 43.7% over the corresponding periods in the prior year, respectively.
