For the quarter, we bankrupt 1,601 homes, breeding about $380 actor in home sales revenue, which represents a 4% access over the third analysis of 2017 and the best third analysis for acquirement and Aggregation history.
We concluded the third analysis with 81 alive communities, which is a net access of 4 over the 77 alive communities. Now we had at the end of the third analysis aftermost year. Assimilation in the third analysis boilerplate 6.5 closings per association per ages company-wide. This was they decreased from the third analysis of aftermost year with 7.6 closings per month, which was the accomplished assimilation recorded in our third analysis history.
In comparison, our third analysis accomplishment aback our IPO generated 5.5 closings per association in 2014, 6.3 in 2015, and 6.0 in 2016. This quarter, our top analysis on the closings per association base was the Northwest at 8.7 closings per month, followed by the Axial Analysis at 7.9 and the Southeast analysis at 6.0.
Breaking it down, let us aboriginal attending at highlights from our Axial Analysis operations.

Of the 57% of closings that took abode alfresco the Axial Division, a highlight of the third analysis was an access in closings in our Northwest Division. This analysis we bankrupt 139 homes in this analysis compared to 72 homes bankrupt in the third analysis of aftermost year, which is an access of 93% year-over-year with our alive association abacus actual flat.
One of the primary drivers of this access is our fast alpha in the State of California. Our aboriginal activity in the Sacramento bazaar bankrupt 33 homes in the aboriginal abounding analysis of actuality accessible for business. This fabricated Sacramento our cardinal one bazaar this quarter, averaging 11 closings per ages per association with an boilerplate sales bulk of over $370,000.
Our Southeast Analysis additionally had a able analysis accent by our accretion of Wynn Homes on August 2 for $78 million. The Wynn accretion is acceptance us to aggrandize our attendance in the Raleigh bazaar while additionally giving us an access into the Wilmington market.
As a aftereffect of this transaction, we acquired about 200 homes beneath architecture and 4,000 endemic and controlled lots of which 85% were in the Raleigh Durham bazaar affective LGI from the 15th bigger architect in the bazaar to aural adeptness of the top bristles according to builder.com.

In our broad business, we bankrupt 104 homes this analysis with three altered advance groups breeding $26.8 actor in revenue. We accept opportunities like this are accretive to our business and action us an access for abeyant growth.
With that, I’d like to about-face the alarm over to Charles Merdian, our Chief Banking Officer, for a added all-embracing analysis of our banking results.
Thanks, Eric. Home sales revenues for the analysis were $380.4 actor based on 1,601 homes closed, which represents a 4% access over the third analysis of 2017. Sales prices accomplished from homes bankrupt during the third analysis ambit from the 140s to over $500,000 and averaged $237,582, a 12.3% year-over-year increase, and the accomplished ASP in our history. The access in boilerplate sales bulk year-over-year reflects changes in artefact mix, favorable appraisement ambiance and new or backup communities added that accept college bulk points. All of our accommodation accomplished an access in boilerplate sales bulk alignment from 8.6% to 11.6%.

Affairs costs for the analysis were $27.9 actor or 7.3% of home sales revenue, compared to $26 actor or 7.1% of home sales acquirement for the third analysis of 2017, a 20 base point increase. The access in affairs costs as a allotment of home sales revenues reflects added operating costs primarily associated with access in announcement expenses.
General and authoritative costs were 4.7% of home sales acquirement compared to 4.2% for the third analysis of 2017, a 50 base point increase. The access in accepted and authoritative costs as a allotment of home sales acquirement is primarily due to ancient accretion accompanying transaction costs associated with the accretion of Wynn Homes.
In affiliation with the arising of the chief notes, we bargain the revolving charge beneath the acclaim acceding from $750 actor to $450 million. And this analysis we’ve recorded $3.1 actor in debt concealment bulk accompanying to the acclaim agreement. Pre-tax assets for the analysis was $49 actor or 12.9% of home sales revenue.
We generated net assets in the analysis of $37.7 million, a 12% access over the above-mentioned year third quarter. Net assets was 9.9% of home sales revenue, the accomplished allotment in the third analysis as a accessible aggregation and represents balance per allotment of $1.66 per basal allotment and $1.52 per adulterated share. Abounding shares outstanding for artful adulterated balance per allotment impacted by our outstanding convertible notes.
In the third analysis of 2018, our boilerplate banal bulk was $54.97, beyond the about-face price, and accordingly the convertible addendum were bent to be dilutive. This resulted in about 2 actor allotment access to the weighted-average shares outstanding for the adulterated EPS abacus for the quarter.
Third analysis gross orders were 2,157 and net orders were 1,629, agnate to the added quarter. Catastrophe balance for the third analysis was 1,212 homes compared to 1,328 aftermost year, and hardly up from the 1,184 at the end of added quarter.

At this point, I’d like to about-face it aback over to Eric.
Thanks Charles. In summary, we had addition outstanding quarter. Now let me accommodate some thoughts and what we are seeing appropriately far in the fourth analysis and some advice for the blow of 2018. As appear in our account columnist release, we bankrupt 468 homes in October bottomward 12% from the 531 closings in October of aftermost year. The 468 closings came from 83 alive communities constant in assimilation pace, averaging 5.6 closings per association per month.
Although this assimilation clip was not as able as aftermost year and represent a slower sales clip in 2017. We are still seeing able appeal and based on our pipeline, we are still assured and closing added than 6,400 homes in 2018. Closings for the year through October absolute 5,128 we admit that will charge able after-effects for the aftermost two months of the year to accomplish added than the 6,400.
We apprehend closing to be heavily abounding in December, which is historically our arch month. Affordability continues to abide a focus as mentioned in above-mentioned calls. We apprehend our assimilation ante to adapt off the almanac breaking after-effects from the above-mentioned year. Assimilation ante and college prices accept amorphous to amplitude affordability.
Historically, we accept apparent buyers in this blazon of ambiance about-face bottomward and admeasurement of homes purchased and we would apprehend agnate after-effects in the near-term and accept we will be in a position to capitalize.
As Charles mentioned, our net orders were agnate in the third analysis this year compared to the added analysis and we abide to see able appeal in cartage and our advice centers from renters absent to catechumen to homeownership, proving that client assimilation levels are still high.
As we accept said all year, we are on clue to end 2018 amid 85 and 90 communities continuing to aggrandize our brand in our accepted markets and abacus new ones. One of these new markets is Las Vegas breadth we apprehend to accept our aboriginal closings in November and as the year amid 25 and 30 closings authoritative Las Vegas addition acknowledged barrage for LGI. This amplification will abide in 2019. We are on clue to accommodated our ambition of 20% to 30% association abacus to abound aing year.
We’re additionally on clue to accommodated our boilerplate sales bulk advice in 2018 amid $220,000 and $230,000 and to accommodated our antecedent allowance guidance. We accept we will end the year with gross margins amid 24.5% and 26.5%, and adapted gross margins which excludes the furnishings of assimilation and acquirement accounting will abide to be able catastrophe the year amid 26% and 28%. Closing added than 6,400 homes with constant margins boilerplate sales bulk and SG&A advantage leads us to accept that our full-year basal balance per allotment will be amid $6.50 and $7.25 per share.
Now I’ll be blessed to booty your questions.
[Operator Instructions] And our aboriginal catechism comes from the bandage of Nishu Sood from Deutsche Bank. You may begin.
Thanks. So aboriginal catechism I capital to ask was aloof in agreement of the acknowledgment to the apathetic bottomward and pace. Charles, you mentioned that you accept added the bulk of business spend. And so what is about the breeze through, aback did you, access the business aggrandize in acknowledgment to the, the apathetic bottomward in sales clip and aback would that activate to appearance up in agreement of closings normally?
Yes, I mean, I’ll booty that an issue. This is Eric. We started absolutely alternate to spending the money in August as assimilation ante abide to acceleration and announcement account acquittal and absolutely attractive and ambrosial to the renters that are attractive to get into home ownership. We added our business absorb to accord with the college rate. So absolutely over the aftermost 90 canicule or so.
And I anticipate it’s additionally a acceptable admonition that over the aftermost brace years the appeal has been so able that we haven’t spent our abounding business account and nor accept we bare to. So we anticipate it’s aloof accepting aback to added of a normalized absorb aback it comes to announcement and what LGI does to drive leads to our advice centers added so than, than we’re spending an balance bulk over budget.
Got it. Okay and in agreement of you mentioned that addition acknowledgment that buyers about accept aback there is an affordability constraints is to about-face bottomward to a lower bulk model, which, accustomed your, the spec-oriented attributes of your business would be a simple as attractive at a altered unit. As that already amorphous to occur?
Is there some acknowledgment that is all-important on your part? For example, if you accept a association that acclimated to be with the starting archetypal at 200 and the accomplished one at 250, do now charge to about-face it so that to acclimatize for it to about-face what you’re putting up or how is that activity to assignment and has that amorphous to accommodate some account as able-bodied today?
Yes. I anticipate we’re already seeing that affair and I anticipate a accepted animadversion is we’re consistently attractive at affordability, we’re consistently attractive at all of our attic affairs on a per association basis. So if we accept the adeptness to body a abate aboveboard footage plan, we will do that and somewhat bound based on HRA requirements, burghal and canton requirements in some cases, but about we accept four or bristles attic affairs per association and the chump will accept options on which one that they choose.
Obviously, the barter consistently admired the beyond homes better, but they may accept to baddest based on abilities and breadth assimilation ante they’re advantageous today. They may accept to accept to get into a abate aboveboard footage plan. But alike in that scenario, we are actual optimistic about the business and additionally acerb accept that accepting into a abate aboveboard bottom home and owning it is a lot bigger than running.
Got it. And final one, the Pacific Northwest comments are ambrosial notable accustomed that, that has been an breadth that best added builders accept cited as actuality at the advanced end of the apathetic down. Was it aloof Sacramento? How did the blow of the Pacific Northwest attending and is that alpha in Sacramento, which aloof sounds I beggarly at a absurd rate. Is that sustainable?
Well, it’s acceptable from a appeal standpoint. I mean, we’ve apparent acutely able appeal in Seattle. The broad business has absolutely helped out the Northwest Analysis as well. So we’ve apparent able appeal up there. I anticipate one affair that’s allowance us in allegory with what the added builders accept talked about on their calls, is our boilerplate sales bulk in Seattle is still in the 350 to 380 ambit and that’s still a actual affordable, actual ambrosial bulk point in the Seattle market. So we’re still continuing to see able demand.
Got it. Acknowledge you.
And our aing catechism comes from the bandage of Michael Rehaut from JPMorgan. You may begin.
Hi. This is Elad on for Mike. This is Elad on for Mike. Aloof first, it sounds like appeal is still adequately able at your bulk point but there was that – about a 15% abatement assimilation in 3Q. And I aloof capital to breach out, any accurate regions breadth you’re seeing some slower appeal trends?
Sure. This is Eric. Yes, it was slower than aftermost year, but historically appropriate in bandage with our averages, and based on the third analysis of 2018 compared to the 2017, of our six divisions, three were college and three were lower. We accent a few on the call, but the Northwest Analysis closings per association was college this year as able-bodied as the Southeast Analysis and the Midwest, and afresh the Axial Southwest and Florida were lower than aftermost year. So it was mixed.
Okay. And those regions that had the slowdowns, were there any accurate drivers that you appetite to alarm out alfresco from some of the affordability, things that you mentioned? And in acknowledgment to those things, accept you activate incentives or any accurate blazon of incentive, maybe allowance to pay for the bulk increase, added helpful? And lastly, aloof aback you attending at – you mentioned that December tends to accept college cat-and-mouse aback it comes to the closings. I’m aloof apprehensive if that additionally included some anatomy of allurement that you’re planning on advocacy to added SG&A in the 4Q or affectionate of what you accept congenital into that closings guidance? Thanks.
Yes. There’s a few questions there. But Florida as an example, one the areas are slower. A lot of community-by- association alteration and bankrupt out. And like I said, a little bit slower compared to aftermost year, which was a almanac breaking analysis that’s little bit accepted with the college rates. But absolutely no big declivity in appeal or what we’re seeing from business standpoint in any of the markets. And afresh as far as incentives go, we’re not a big allurement blazon of company. We priced the gross margin. So we apprehend our adapted gross margin, like we talked about on the alarm to be consistent. In fact, the aboriginal nine months of this year compared to aftermost year, a 27.3 compared to 27.4 or so addition year of actual constant gross margins for LGI and we apprehend that to abide to the fourth quarter.
Okay, great. And aloof after on the gross margins. The access in gross allowance this analysis and the arch margin, how abundant of that additionally has to do with college mix? It seems like aloof mentioned the college bulk association in Sacramento. How abundant of the gross allowance is actuality helped by college mix adjoin – or maybe basal appraisement ability in the market?
Yes. So this is Charles. Not so abundant as a percentage, you beggarly the college mix or the college bulk points, we accede to agnate gross margins. So our expectations are agnate admitting breadth the ASP may appear into play. And I anticipate this analysis absolutely from the banking gross allowance aspect was impacted by the wind acquisition, so almost constant as Eric would say. I anticipate our after-effects this analysis almost constant or agnate and that’s breadth we would apprehend them to abide to be.
Okay, great. Acknowledge you.
And our aing catechism comes the bandage of Stephen East from Wells Fargo. You may begin.
Thanks. This is absolutely Przybylski on our Stephen. Aboriginal of all, Eric, I noticed that you guys do accept a civic sales advance activity on, on your website appropriate now. Can you allocution about the consequence of allurement or the blazon that you’re alms and is that targeted specific account and on a bound base or added broad-based and I’m not – I can’t anamnesis it, but aboriginal time you’ve had a civic sales promotion?
It is the aboriginal time we’ve had a advance on a civic band? And that is absolutely aloof our business aggregation absolutely blockage on the business and absolutely advancing up with new account on how to advance LGI beyond the country and drive added sales and leads to our corresponding communities and we anticipation it was a abundant abstraction for the end of the year and accomplish abiding that we hit our 6,400 added closings and do aggregate that we say we’re activity to do.
So our business aggregation is on top of the business, consistently attractive at abundant ideas. The civic sales accident is not so abundant of allurement is absolutely absolution bodies apperceive to attending into home buying and get a authority of our sales assembly that are advice centers.
We accept accomplished account that we can move barter in by the end of the year. That’s ambrosial altered in the home architecture industry. We can get them in afore Christmas. We can get them in afore the holidays. Enjoy their new abode and absolutely announcement the actuality that we can accomplish that appear and get them out of their rental bearings and into their new home.
Okay. Added than your columnist absolution talked about some association abrasion in Florida and the axial region, is there any way to breach afar maybe the lower demand. We’re seeing lower mailer responses or aloof all-embracing cartage or abatement and qualifications, any affectionate of blush around, what happened in the analysis with the account to closings?
Yes, I anticipate it’s the boxy catechism happened – what happened in the analysis because all-embracing we accept 6.5% closings for community. We that’s a actual absolute results. So we had a lot of absolute things happened in the quarter.
Demand by no agency a apathetic down, we’re still seeing able appeal aback you’re ambidextrous with college assimilation ante and an boilerplate sales bulk that aftermost year was 211,000, – this year is 237,000. So 26,000 access in boilerplate sales price.
Obviously that drives the account acquittal college and makes it added arduous for barter to authorize on the aforementioned home. But account buy a lot of absolute things accident in the economy, like job growth, allowance growth, et cetera.
So it’s adamantine for us to say it’s slowing because we’re comparing it to the best analysis in LGI history and the best year in LGI history and aloof a able aloft assimilation as we had a few years ago with an boilerplate sales bulk $50,000 to $70,000 less. So we attending at all the metrics were on top of that. Absolutely our about-face ante aren’t as able as they were aftermost year. But all-embracing actual absolute
Given the bargain affordability and the change in account payment, accept you had to maybe adapt your sales action or for the accommodating that you do in sales center?
No, no. Our presentation to our barter is the aforementioned and it says not at the aforementioned was out aback 2003. And absolutely talking about the bulk of homeownership and authoritative abiding the barter accept had a abundant experience.
And I anticipate for our managers and our advisers and our sales and for customers, what is altered this time as over the aftermost few years we’ve had a few assimilation bulk bumps and afresh they go bottomward afresh and they go aback up and they go bottomward again.
This time I anticipate we all agree. Assimilation ante are college and we’re affairs 30-year anchored ante and the added 5% ambit or alike 5.5% and that’s activity to continue. We don’t, we don’t accept they’re activity to go aback bottomward into the force and may acceptable accustomed to the sixes and we charge to be acknowledgment that to customers. We anticipate it’s a abundant time to buy, prices and assimilation ante are acceptable to abide to go higher.
Okay. Acknowledge you. Acknowledge it.
Thank you. And our aing catechism comes from bandage of Carl Reichardt from BTIG. You may begin.
Thanks actual much. Hi guys. I capital to ask Charles or Eric about the association access for 2019. And you’ve talked about the 20% to 30% growth. Aback we’re attractive at clay that is that array of a bit-by-bit advance bulk through the year? Is there a aback end or advanced end amount and adumbrated there?
I anticipate it’s to be added bit-by-bit Carl, throughout the year constant 20%, 30% based on end of the year cardinal to end of the year number.
Okay. All right, thanks. And then, barge prices accept appear in absolutely a bit and afresh the aftermost four to six months or so. And so I’m d that that will alpha to breeze through and advice a little bit on the bulk side. Can you allocution about array of the timing of that, of how that will advice you d that now that trend stays safe collapsed from here?
Sure. This is Charles. So I anticipate for the best allotment what we’re seeing in our architecture budgets is that costs are being, are stabilizing and annihilation breadth we’re seeing an befalling breadth costs are advancing in. We’re demography a attending at our accomplishment as well, authoritative abiding that we’re attractive at the appropriate artefact and architecture the appropriate product. So that we can breeze that into our appraisement archetypal that we can break mindful, if you will, of affordability.
So I anticipate what we’ll see is some of those accumulation will get account with some changes that will accomplish our affairs and our expectations is that we’ll see abstinent increases to our architecture budgets and we feel that’s acquiescent from a appraisement standpoint to advance our adapted gross margins and our advice range.
Okay, great. And afresh aftermost question, attending at your can rate, has the mix of those cans changed? Are you seeing still the majority of those actuality array of disability to get costs or are you seeing added dropouts of absolute orders due to added reasons?

That’s a actual absolute affect appear the primary bazaar that LGI is focused on. There are absolutely places breadth we’re aggressive with them to new deals to buy new deals, but with 53,000 endemic are controlled lots.
