Florida-based homebuilder $LEN said the company continued to benefit from a slow and steady housing market recovery in 2Q16 and has adopted strategies for the business that have positioned the company well to maximize opportunity in these market conditions. $LEN expects demand to build over the coming years which will drive increased production.

Regarding the GM ramp in 2H17, $LEN said the ramp will be driven by the amount of field expenses that are absorbed, given the increased volume closings. Added to this, $LEN added that it enters the year with a bit lower sales pace and is able to push pricing throughout the year, which is a typical seasonal pattern.

On a segment basis, $LEN believes its for-sale core homebuilding operations continue to be well positioned for the remaining of 2017. In 2Q17, new orders were up about 12% YoY, driven by a higher sales pace of 4 homes per community per month compared to 3.9 a year ago, along with a community count growth of about 6%.
