THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Oct. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — LGI Homes, Inc. (NASDAQ: LGIH) in advance of investor meetings, today announced preliminary September 2020 home closings.
Pending final verification of funding, the Company expects to close approximately 810 homes in September 2020 compared to 654 home closings in September 2019. The Company plans to release final September 2020 home closing information after market close later today.
Eric Lipar, LGI Homes’ Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, noted, “I am incredibly pleased with our entire organization’s ability to adapt and deliver these exceptional results. This was our best September on record and was also the third best month overall in our Company’s history. These results demonstrate the success we have had accelerating our pace of starts to meet demand and underscore the strength of our efficient, even-flow construction model that enables us to quickly put new homes on the ground.
We continue to see unprecedented demand across our markets driven by historically low interest rates, an undersupply of homes for sale, and a desire among buyers to leave densely populated areas in favor of the space, safety and convenience of a single-family home. We believe our business model, targeted at renters and focused on providing affordable, 100% move-in ready suburban homes, is uniquely well-positioned to meet the needs of these buyers now and for the foreseeable future.”
