SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Sept. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- In advance of investor meetings, Taylor Morrison Home Corporation (NYSE: TMHC) reported preliminary total orders for July and August 2019.
For the first two months of the third quarter 2019, orders totaled 1,684 representing a 30 percent increase year-over-year for the same two-month time period. This was driven by year-over-year increases in sales in each of the three regional reporting segments, leading to a year-over-year increase in absorptions for the company.
"We've continued the momentum experienced in the front half of the year and are encouraged by where this positions us for year-end," said Sheryl Palmer, Chairman and CEO of Taylor Morrison.
The Company will report its full third quarter 2019 results in late October.
