Lennar posts strong fourth quarter
New orders and home deliveries continue to climb at Lennar as net income more than quadrupled in its fiscal fourth quarter partly because of a tax benefit.
The homebuilder — which builds homes in Collier and Lee counties — also reported a sharp rise in its order backlog, a sign of potential future housing revenue. Miami-based Lennar sells homes for entry level and move-up buyers as well as retirees.
Lennar-built communities in Southwest Florida include Treviso Bay and Fiddler's Creek in East Naples, Bella Terra in Bonita, The Preserve at Corkscrew, and in Ave Maria.
