Cost-Cutting Strategies for Home Builders of All Sizes 

The biggest news for 2017 in the home building industry was, undoubtedly, Lennar's purchase of Cal­Atlantic—the largest-ever merger involving the nation’s Housing Giants. The combined company will likely be the No.1 home builder in the U.S. in 2018 in both revenue and closings. With its $9.3 billion price tag (including debt), Lennar will shell out three times as much as Pulte did for Centex in that merger of Giants in 2009, but is undoubtedly counting on a better return than that transaction garnered. In addition to gaining a substantial and lucrative foothold in California’s thriving housing market, Lennar‘s deal will allow the company to pursue lower costs for labor and materials in all of its combined markets.

“Consumers, in a lot of ways, were smarter than we were,” Storey says. “They saw the housing downturn before the builders did and acted very quickly. They stopped buying homes, started walking away from contracts, but builders were in denial. Pay attention to the consumer. They are smarter than us.” Read more ...
