Management Discussion
  • Revenues from home sales increased 21% in the second quarter of 2021 to $6.0 billion from $4.9 billion in the second quarter of 2020. Revenues were higher primarily due to a 14% increase in the number of home deliveries, excluding unconsolidated entities, and a 6% increase in the average sales price. New home deliveries, excluding unconsolidated entities, increased to 14,462 homes in the second quarter of 2021 from 12,653 homes in the second quarter of 2020. The average sales price of homes delivered was $414,000 in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $389,000 in the second quarter of 2020.
  • Gross margin on home sales were $1.6 billion, or 26.1%, in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $1.1 billion, or 21.6%, in the second quarter of 2020. The gross margin percentage on home sales increased primarily as a result of pricing power as the increase in revenue per square foot outpaced the increase in cost per square foot. Additionally, we continued to focus on controlling construction costs. Gross margin on land sales in the second quarter of 2021 was $5.8 million compared to a loss of $23.5 million in the second quarter of 2020. The loss in the second quarter of 2020 was primarily due to a write-off of costs as a result of us not moving forward with a naval base development in Concord, California, northeast of San Francisco.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses were $455.2 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $407.2 million in the second quarter of 2020. As a percentage of revenues from home sales, selling, general and administrative expenses improved to 7.6% in the second quarter of 2021, from 8.3% in the second quarter of 2020. This was the lowest percentage for a second quarter in our history primarily due to a decrease in broker commissions and benefits of our technology efforts.
