Home builders create new homes. Some create single family homes, while others create luxury homes. Some home building companies also operate mortgage companies.
Given how expensive creating new homes can be, the top 21 largest home builders in the USA all had 2021 revenue of over $1 billion.
Like the shares of many other companies in other sectors, the shares of many leading home builders have not done well in 2022. Due to inflation, the Federal Reserve has increased interest rates in five straight meetings this year, with the Central bank raising interest rates by three quarters of a point in its September meeting alone. Due to the Federal Reserve rate hikes, the benchmark interest rate is now at 3-3.25% versus near zero in March.
As a result of the Federal Reserve interest rate increases, mortgage rates have also increased. As of October 5, the rate on the 30 year mortgage averaged 6.75% after being at around 3.25% at the end of 2021.
Given how expensive new homes can be, new home demand also depends on mortgage rates. If mortgage rates are low and the economy is strong, demand for new homes can be really robust. If mortgage rates are high and the economy is weaker, however, demand for new homes might not be as strong.
Given current inflation, there is potential for the Federal Reserve to increase interest rates further. If that happens, mortgage rates could potentially increase further and demand for new homes might be weaker.
Recently Federal Reserve Vice Chair Lael Brainard commented on inflation, “The Federal Reserve has tightened policy strongly to bring inflation down, and U.S. tightening is being amplified by concurrent foreign tightening. We are starting to see the effects in some areas, but it will take some time for the cumulative tightening to transmit throughout the economy and to bring inflation down. Uncertainty remains high, and I am paying close attention to the evolution of the outlook as well as global risks.”
It isn’t clear how much the economy will slow in reaction to the interest rate increases and it also isn’t clear how quickly inflation will fall. Given the uncertainties and the volatile market, it could be useful to have a well diversified portfolio with leading stocks in many different sectors.

Saga Partners said the following in a Q2 2022 letter about LGI Homes, Inc. (NASDAQ:LGIH),
LGI Homes should be a familiar name. The Portfolio first bought LGI in Q1’17 and then sold it during Q1’21 to take advantage of other opportunities that appeared relatively more attractive. Subsequently, shares increased over 50% from our sell price, only strengthening belief in our inability to time tops and bottoms. As shares declined this year as a potential reaction to LGI’s supply chain headwinds and a greater aversion to housing related stocks, we are excited to be owners again. LGI builds and sells standardized entry-level, single-family homes at attractive prices. Their competitive advantage comes from numerous integrated processes that all work together to drive building quality homes fast and at low price points. There is no proprietary technology or knowledge, but LGI has integrated around a very specific job to be done, which is very difficult for any other homebuilder to replicate, resulting in industry-leading growth and returns on equity
As a result, LGI Homes, Inc. (NASDAQ:LGIH) achieved revenue of over $3 billion.
