Housing Recovery

Aug 22 (Reuters) – Toll Brothers Inc, the largest luxury homebuilder in the United States, reported its highest revenue since the recession of 2008, underlining the recovery in the housing market and sending its shares to a five-year high.

The company, which targets affluent customers who typically make at least $100,000 a year and have spotless credit records, reported a sharp jump in orders and forecast higher revenue for the full year.

“We are enjoying the most sustained demand we have experienced in over five years,” Toll CEO Douglas Yearley said in a statement. “The housing recovery is being driven by pent-up demand, very low interest rates and attractively priced homes.”

The U.S. housing market, which fell into a deep rut six years ago prompting a recession in the economy, has been recovering this year. Home sales have risen, helped by higher rental rates and low inventory.

U.S. home resales rose in July as low interest rates and a modest improvement in the labor market helped home buying conditions, the National Association of Realtors said on Wednesday.

Homebuilders such as D.R. Horton and PulteGroup have reported strong results.

“Housing is on the mend,” Toll’s Executive Chairman Robert Toll said.

The company said it was gaining market share as small and mid-sized private builders – its primary rivals – are constrained for capital.

Toll is the only publicly traded luxury homebuilder.

“The pace of our contract growth has far exceeded the national housing data as we are gaining market share,” said CEO Yearley.

Toll’s net signed contracts rose 57 percent to 1,119 units during May-July. Backlog jumped 59 percent to $1.62 billion.

CEO Yearley said Toll’s non-binding reservation deposits – an indication of future contracts – increased 59 percent in the first three weeks of the fourth quarter.

The company forecast home-sale revenue of $1.71 billion to $1.84 billion for 2012. It raised the lower end of its full-year home delivery outlook range by 300 units to 3,000. It expects to deliver up to 3,200 units.

The forecast calls for at least 16 percent growth in revenue and 15 percent growth in deliveries.

This is a boon to businesses offering services highly appealing to new homeowners who just move into their new home – anything from remodeling, interior design, furniture & appliances retailers, home theater installation services etc.

New homeowners, especially in the luxury home sector, are equipped with excellent credit and cash to spend. They will spend even as much as $100,000 in their first 6 months (with most purchases complete in the first three) after moving in.
Making them an offer in the right time is key to getting their attention and eventually, their business.

There are no sales leads qualified for such marketing campaigns as new homeowners at the timing of moving into a newly purchased home.
