THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Feb. 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – LGI Homes, Inc. (Nasdaq:LGIH) today announced 172 homes closed in January 2017, compared to 232 home closings in January 2016.
“Although January closings were down year over year, sales are off to a strong start in 2017 and demand for homeownership remains solid. Assuming that general economic conditions, including interest rates and mortgage availability, in the remainder of 2017 are similar to those in the fourth quarter of 2016, we believe we are on track to close more than 4,700 homes this year,” said Eric Lipar, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board.
