Professional Builder Ranks Warmington #9 on its Annual List of Big Gainers

July-26-2013

Turning the downturn into an opportunity to retrench and improve: this was the common theme among the builders featured in Professional Builders’ 2013 “Big Gainers,” published this month. Warmington ranked an impressive #9 on this list of builders nationwide who reported the largest year-over-year (2011–2012) revenue increases. The bigger news is that our group expects this upward trend to continue and we are projecting an additional 25 percent increase in revenue this year. According to Jim Warmington Jr., president and CEO of the Warmington group of companies, much of the hard work we’ve done in the preceding years has already begun to pay off.

“We have largely done the work necessary to reach these goals in 2013,” says Warmington in the feature article, which is posted below. “We own and are building the communities, or have entitled the properties we may sell, plus we have hired the necessary staff. To reach our goals for 2014, we are continuing with more of the same. Specifically, adding staff where necessary, aggressively focusing on land acquisition, and creating special and different communities and home designs.”

Warmington Group

Warmington Residential set up its stellar growth in 2012 by believing in the impending recovery as early as 2010. The Warmington Group division backed that bet by becoming aggressive. The Costa Mesa, Calif.-based builder hired additional staff for its land acquisition team and made improvements in operations, design, and sales. The company closed out unprofitable legacy deals  made before and during the recession. While the downturn zapped access to capital for many businesses, Warmington strengthened its long-term relationships with equity investors and lenders, enabling the company to finance many deals that other private companies could not.

Next was remaking product. Warmington focused on creating communities that were special and different from anything found in the market. Among those offerings were single-story homes and predominantly single-story living—a product that is scarce in the market today. Warmington also married its floor plans with true indoor-outdoor living, customizable options for some locations, and features reflecting tomorrow’s market trends. One such product, the Plan 1 luxury home for the Legacy Collection in Covenant Hills in Ladera Ranch, Calif., was a Golden Nugget Award of Merit winner for the Single Family Detached Home Over 4,000 Square Feet category. At least 18 of the million dollar-plus homes in the Legacy Collection have sold since debuting in November 2012.
Warmington also integrated upgrades and designer selections throughout its Chateau Interiors & Design division. The company considered extensive research and planning to enhance designs for communities that were better suited for their targeted buyer groups.
Revenue last year for Warmington Group—which also includes Warmington Properties Inc., a full-service real estate company, and its interior design firm—soared 94.2 percent to $121 million with Warmington Residential posting 296 closings. The builder expects a 25-percent increase in 2013.
“We have largely done the work necessary to reach these goals in 2013,” said Jim Warmington Jr., president and CEO. “We own and are building the communities, or have entitled the properties we may sell, plus we have hired the necessary staff. To reach our goals for 2014, we are continuing with more of the same. Specifically, adding staff where necessary, aggressively focusing on land acquisition, and creating special and different communities and home designs.”
Warmington builds single-family homes and multifamily houses and apartments and is most active in California and Nevada.

Double-digit revenue growth for these home builders during the recovery started with pre-planning, re-examination, and retrenching during the recession. >>Read the full article here.<<

Bam! Just like that. After years of housing doldrums, Warmington Residential debuts The Legacy Collection at Covenant Hills in Ladera Ranch and suddenly, home buying is back! Coincidence? More like timing and a really phenomenal opportunity. For the first time in four years, a new home community was introduced in Ladera Ranch, within its only gated enclave in the custom home neighborhood of Covenant Hills.

Adding to the appeal is the availability of single-level floorplans, which is a rarity in south Orange County. Single-level yet flexible and able to accommodate a second level, The Legacy Collection has found broad appeal among all types of buyers. With an abundance of square footage that exceeds 4,100 square feet and up to six available bedrooms, these homes offer the chance to live in a single level home while enjoying the extra space and convenience of an optional second level.

The response has been impressive and sales have exceeded expectations: Since its recent debut, the 18 homes that have been released at The Legacy Collection have all been sold. In fact, each phase has sold prior to construction commencing, and there is a deep waiting list of interested buyers for future phases. Homes are priced from the low- to mid-$1 millions

The Legacy Collection is located at 5 Stockmen Road in Ladera Ranch. The models are now open for touring from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For more information, and to view the interactive floorplans, go to www.LegacyCollectionHomes.com or call (949) 481-6502.
