Homebuilding revenues of $2.22 billion in the second quarter of 2021 increased by 40% compared to homebuilding revenues of $1.59 billion in the second quarter of 2020. Gross profit margin in the second quarter of 2021 increased to 22.6%, compared to 19.2% in the second quarter of 2020. Income before tax from the homebuilding segment totaled $378.3 million in the second quarter of 2021, an increase of 94% when compared to the second quarter of 2020.

Mortgage Banking

Mortgage closed loan production in the second quarter of 2021 totaled $1.57 billion, an increase of 37% when compared to the second quarter of 2020. Income before tax from the mortgage banking segment totaled $39.2 million in the second quarter of 2021, an increase of 161% when compared to $15.0 million in the second quarter of 2020. This increase was primarily attributable to increased mortgage volume in the second quarter of 2021, coupled with income in the second quarter of 2020 being adversely impacted by disruptions in the mortgage markets related to the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in a reduction in fair value of mortgage servicing rights.

Effective Tax Rate

Our effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 was 23.0% and 21.9%, respectively, compared to 21.8% and 8.5% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively. The effective tax rates in each period were favorably impacted by the recognition of an income tax benefit related to excess tax benefits from stock option exercises totaling $11.2 million and $28.6 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively, and $6.9 million and $62.5 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively.

Other Matters – COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on all facets of our business. Our primary focus as we face this challenge is to do everything we can to ensure the safety and well-being of our employees, customers and trade partners. In each of our markets, we continue to operate in accordance with the guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as state and local health department guidelines, which has resulted in significant changes to the way we conduct business.

Although current demand for new homes is strong, there remains uncertainty regarding the extent and timing of disruption to our business that may result from COVID-19 and related governmental actions. There is also uncertainty as to the effects of economic relief efforts on the U.S. economy, unemployment, consumer confidence, demand for our homes and the mortgage market, including lending standards and secondary mortgage markets. We are unable to predict the extent to which this will impact our operational and financial performance including the impact of future developments such as the duration and spread of COVID-19, corresponding governmental actions, and the impact of such on our employees, customers and trade partners.
