Lennar to build hundreds of affordable entry-level homes across metro Phoenix
Miami-based Lennar Corp. (NYSE: LEN), which sells homes for an average of $515,000 in metro Phoenix, is introducing a more affordable home design that starts in the low $300,000s.
The homebuilder is launching a new series called Premier Homes, addressing the need for first-time homebuyers at a time when mortgage interest rates are keeping many potential homeowners in rental units.
The goal is to offer homes where monthly mortgage payments are in the $2,000 to $2,500 range, which is what many renters are currently paying in build-to-rent communities being developed across the Valley, said Michael Dowell, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Lennar.
