NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
1.     ORGANIZATION AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION
Organization and Description of the Business
LGI Homes, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”, “we,” “us,” or “our”), is engaged in the development of communities and the design, construction and sale of new homes in Texas, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, New Mexico, Colorado, North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington, Tennessee, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Alabama, California, Oregon, Nevada, West Virginia and Virginia.
Basis of Presentation
The unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019. The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements include all adjustments that are of a normal recurring nature and necessary for the fair presentation of our results for the interim periods presented. Results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full year.
The accompanying unaudited financial statements as of September 30, 2020, and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates, and these differences could have a significant impact on the financial statements.
COVID-19
On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the current outbreak of the novel strain of coronavirus (“COVID-19”) to be a global pandemic, and on March 13, 2020, the United States declared a national emergency. In response to these declarations and the rapid spread of COVID-19, federal, state and local governments imposed varying degrees of restrictions on business and social activities to contain COVID-19, including business shutdowns and closures, travel restrictions, quarantines, curfews, shelter-in-place orders and “stay-at-home” orders in certain of our markets. State and local authorities have also implemented multi-step policies with the goal of re-opening various sectors of the economy. However, certain jurisdictions began re-opening only to return to restrictions in the face of increases in new COVID-19 cases, while other jurisdictions are continuing to re-open or have nearly completed the re-opening process despite increases in COVID-19 cases. The COVID-19 outbreak may significantly worsen in the United States during the upcoming winter months, which may cause federal, state and local governments to reconsider restrictions on business and social activities. In the event governments increase restrictions, the re-opening of the economy may be further curtailed. We have experienced some resulting disruptions to our business operations, as these restrictions have significantly impacted, and may continue to impact, many sectors of the economy, with various businesses curtailing or ceasing normal operations and subsequently attempting to resume operations. In March 2020, certain markets in which we do business temporarily stopped our construction of homes. Beginning in April 2020, we resumed construction of homes in those markets. Although we continued to build and sell homes in all of our markets, the pace of sales declined and we experienced an increase in the rate of contract cancellations. Since May 2020, the pace of sales has rebounded and we have experienced a sustained increase in demand in our markets. The ultimate impacts of COVID-19 and related mitigation efforts will depend on future developments, including, but not limited to, the duration and geographic spread of COVID-19, the impact of government actions designed to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the development and availability of effective treatments and vaccines, actions taken by customers, subcontractors, suppliers and other third parties, workforce availability, and the timing and extent to which normal economic and operating conditions resume. While we cannot reasonably estimate the length or severity of this pandemic, an extended economic slowdown in the United States could materially impact our consolidated financial statements in 2020 and beyond.

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards
On January 1, 2020, we adopted the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “FASB”) Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2018-15, “Intangibles - Goodwill and Other - Internal-Use Software (Subtopic 350-40): Customer's Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That Is a Service Contract” (“ASU 2018-15”), which requires entities that are customers in cloud computing arrangements to defer implementation costs if they would be capitalized by the entity in software licensing arrangements under the internal-use software guidance. The guidance may be applied retrospectively or prospectively to implementation costs incurred after the date of adoption. The adoption of ASU 2018-15 did not have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements or disclosures.
On January 1, 2020, we adopted the FASB ASU No. 2018-13, “Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820) Disclosure Framework - Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement” (“ASU 2018-13”), which modifies the disclosure requirements of fair value measurements. ASU 2018-13 was effective for us beginning January 1, 2020. Certain disclosures are required to be applied on a retrospective basis and others on a prospective basis. The adoption of ASU 2018-13 did not have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements or disclosures.
On January 1, 2020, we adopted the FASB ASU No. 2017-04, “Intangibles - Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Accounting for Goodwill Impairment” (“ASU 2017-04”), which removes the requirement to perform a hypothetical purchase price allocation to measure goodwill impairment. A goodwill impairment will now be the amount by which a reporting unit’s carrying value exceeds its fair value, not to exceed the carrying amount of goodwill. ASU 2017-04 was effective for us beginning January 1, 2020, with early adoption permitted, and applied prospectively. The adoption of ASU 2017-04 did not have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements or disclosures.
On January 1, 2020, we adopted the FASB ASU No. 2016-13, “Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments” (“ASU 2016-13”), which changes the impairment model for most financial assets and certain other instruments from an “incurred loss” approach to a new “expected credit loss” methodology. ASU 2016-13 was effective for us beginning January 1, 2020, with early adoption permitted. The adoption of ASU 2016-13 did not have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements or disclosures.
2.     REVENUES
Revenue Recognition
Revenues from home sales are recognized when control of the promised goods or services is transferred to our customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration we expect to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services. Revenues from home sales are recorded at the time each home sale is closed, title and possession are transferred to the customer and we have no significant continuing involvement with the home. Home sales discounts and incentives granted to customers, which are related to the customers’ closing costs that we pay on the customers’ behalf, are recorded as a reduction of revenue in our consolidated financial statements of operations.
The following table presents our home sales revenues disaggregated by revenue stream (in thousands):

Home Sales Revenues
10

Table of Contents
We generate revenues primarily by delivering move-in ready entry-level and move-up spec homes sold under our LGI Homes brand and our luxury series spec homes sold under our Terrata Homes brand.
Retail homes sold under both our LGI Homes brand and Terrata Homes brand focus on providing move-in ready homes with standardized features within favorable markets that meet certain demographic and economic conditions. Our LGI Homes brand primarily markets to entry-level or first-time homebuyers, while our Terrata Homes brand primarily markets to move-up homebuyers.
Our other revenues are composed of our wholesale home sales under our LGI Homes brand in existing markets. Wholesale homes are primarily sold under a bulk sales agreement and focus on providing move-in ready homes with standardized features to real estate investors that will ultimately use the single-family homes as rental properties.
Performance Obligations
Our contracts with customers include a single performance obligation to transfer a completed home to the customer. We generally determine selling price per home on the expected cost plus margin. Our contracts contain no significant financing terms as customers who finance do so through a third party. Performance obligations are satisfied at a moment in time when the home is complete and control of the asset is transferred to the customer at closing. Home sales proceeds are generally received from the title company within a few business days after closing.
Sales and broker commissions are incremental costs incurred to obtain a contract with a customer that would not have been incurred if the contract had not been obtained. Sales and broker commissions are expensed upon fulfillment of a home closing. Advertising costs are costs to obtain a contract that would have been incurred regardless of whether the contract was obtained and are recognized as an expense when incurred. Sales and broker commissions and advertising costs are recorded within sales and marketing expense presented in our consolidated statements of operations as selling expenses.
3.     REAL ESTATE INVENTORY
Our real estate inventory consists of the following (in thousands):
September 30,December 31,
20202019
Land, land under development and finished lots$866,723 $912,651 
Information centers29,718 26,959 
Homes in progress463,968 234,470 
Completed homes188,097 325,544 
Total real estate inventory$1,548,506 $1,499,624 
Inventory is stated at cost unless the carrying amount is determined not to be recoverable, in which case the affected inventory is written down to fair value.
Land, development and other project costs, including interest and property taxes incurred during development and home construction, net of expected reimbursable development costs, are capitalized to real estate inventory. Land development and other common costs that benefit the entire community, including field construction supervision and related direct overhead, are allocated to individual lots or homes, as appropriate. The costs of lots are transferred to homes in progress when home construction begins. Home construction costs and related carrying charges are allocated to the cost of individual homes using the specific identification method. Costs that are not specifically identifiable to a home are allocated on a pro rata basis, which we believe approximates the costs that would be determined using an allocation method based on relative sales values since the individual lots or homes within a community are similar in value. Inventory costs for completed homes are expensed to cost of sales as homes are closed. Changes to estimated total development costs subsequent to initial home closings in a community are generally allocated to the remaining unsold lots and homes in the community on a pro rata basis.
The life cycle of a community generally ranges from two to five years, commencing with the acquisition of land, continuing through the land development phase and concluding with the construction and sale of homes. A constructed home is used as the community information center during the life of the community and then sold. Actual individual community lives will vary based on the size of the community, the sales absorption rate and whether the property was purchased as raw land or finished lots.
Interest and financing costs incurred under our debt obligations, as more fully discussed in Note 5, are capitalized to qualifying real estate projects under development and homes under construction.

Inventory Related Obligations
We own lots in certain communities in Arizona, Florida and Texas that have Community Development Districts or similar utility and infrastructure development special assessment programs that allocate a fixed amount of debt service associated with development activities to each lot. This obligation for infrastructure development is attached to the land, which is typically payable over a 30-year period and is ultimately assumed by the homebuyer when home sales are closed. Such obligations represent a non-cash cost of the lots.
Estimated Warranty Reserve
We typically provide homebuyers with a one-year warranty on the house and a ten-year limited warranty for major defects in structural elements such as framing components and foundation systems.
Changes to our warranty accrual are as follows (in thousands):

5.     NOTES PAYABLE
Revolving Credit Agreement
On April 30, 2020, we entered into the Second Amendment to Fourth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Second Amendment”), which amends the Fourth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of May 6, 2019 (as amended by the Lender Addition and Acknowledgement Agreement and First Amendment to Fourth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of December 6, 2019, the “2019 Credit Agreement” and, together with the Second Amendment, the “Credit Agreement”), with several financial institutions, and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as administrative agent. In the Second Amendment, certain lenders agreed to extend the maturity of their commitments, while another lender agreed to extend the maturity of its commitment subsequent to the execution of the Second Amendment. As of September 30, 2020, lenders with $566.0 million, or 87%, of the $650.0 million of commitments under the 2019 Credit Agreement agreed to extend the maturity of their commitments to May 31, 2023, with the remaining lenders retaining their existing maturity of May 31, 2022. The Second Amendment also reduced the minimum EBITDA to interest expense ratio from 2.50 to 1.75, increased the sublimit for letters of credit to $40.0 million and established a London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) floor of 0.70%. The Credit Agreement otherwise has substantially similar terms and provisions to the 2019 Credit Agreement and continues to provide for a $650.0 million revolving credit facility, which can be increased at the request of the Company by up to $100.0 million, subject to the terms and conditions of the Credit Agreement.
12

Table of Contents
The Credit Agreement matures on May 31, 2023 with respect to 87% of the commitments thereunder and on May 31, 2022 with respect to 13% of the commitments thereunder. Before each anniversary of the Credit Agreement, we may request a one-year extension of its maturity date. The Credit Agreement is guaranteed by each of our subsidiaries that have gross assets equal to or greater than $0.5 million. The borrowings and letters of credit outstanding under the Credit Agreement, together with the outstanding principal balance of our 6.875% Senior Notes due 2026 (the “Senior Notes”), may not exceed the borrowing base under the Credit Agreement. As of September 30, 2020, the borrowing base under the Credit Agreement was $949.4 million, of which borrowings, including the Senior Notes, of $627.6 million were outstanding, $15.3 million of letters of credit were outstanding and $306.5 million was available to borrow under the Credit Agreement.
Interest is paid monthly on borrowings under the Credit Agreement at LIBOR plus 2.35%. The Credit Agreement applicable margin for LIBOR loans ranges from 2.35% to 2.75% based on our leverage ratio. At September 30, 2020, LIBOR was 0.15%; however, the Credit Agreement has a 0.70% LIBOR floor.
The Credit Agreement contains various financial covenants, including a minimum tangible net worth, a leverage ratio, a minimum liquidity amount and an EBITDA to interest expense ratio. The Credit Agreement contains various covenants that, among other restrictions, limit the amount of our additional debt and our ability to make certain investments. At September 30, 2020, we were in compliance with all of the covenants contained in the Credit Agreement.
Convertible Notes
On November 15, 2019, our 4.25% Convertible Notes due 2019 (the “Convertible Notes”) matured, which resulted in the principal payment of $70.0 million and the issuance of 2,381,751 shares of our common stock for the premium associated with the Convertible Notes.
Senior Notes Offering
On July 6, 2018, we issued $300.0 million aggregate principal amount of the Senior Notes in an offering to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers in the United States pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and to certain non-U.S. persons in transactions outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. Interest on the Senior Notes accrues at a rate of 6.875% per annum, payable semi-annually in arrears on January 15 and July 15 of each year, commencing on January 15, 2019, and the Senior Notes mature on July 15, 2026. Terms of the Senior Notes are governed by an Indenture and First Supplemental Indenture thereto, each dated as of July 6, 2018, and a Second Supplemental Indenture thereto, dated as of April 30, 2020, as may be supplemented from time to time, among us, our subsidiaries that guarantee our obligations under the Credit Agreement and Wilmington Trust, National Association, as trustee.
Notes payable consist of the following (in thousands):
September 30, 2020December 31, 2019
Notes payable under the Credit Agreement ($650.0 million revolving credit facility at September 30, 2020) maturing in part on May 31, 2022 and in part on May 31, 2023; interest paid monthly at LIBOR plus 2.35%; net of debt issuance costs of approximately $5.5 million and $5.0 million at September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively
$322,158 $394,531

6.     INCOME TAXES
We file U.S. and state income tax returns in jurisdictions with varying statutes of limitations. The statute of limitations with regards to our federal income tax filings is three years. The statute of limitations for our state tax jurisdictions is three to four years depending on the jurisdiction. In the normal course of business, we are subject to tax audits in various jurisdictions, and such jurisdictions may assess additional income taxes. We do not expect the outcome of any audit to have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements; however, audit outcomes and the timing of audit adjustments are subject to significant uncertainty.
For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, our effective tax rates of (14.4)% and 6.9%, respectively, are lower than the Federal statutory rate primarily as a result of the retroactive extension of the federal energy efficient homes tax credit that was enacted into law in December 2019, including the application of the credits to homes closed in prior open tax years. These credits were extended to apply to homes closed through December 31, 2020. Total benefits recognized for the federal energy efficient homes tax credit were $29.4 million and $32.9 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively. The impact of the federal energy efficient homes tax credit was partially offset by an increase in the rate for state income taxes, net of the federal benefit payments.
Income taxes paid were $46.6 million and $14.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Income taxes paid were $65.5 million and $36.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.
7.     EQUITY
Shelf Registration Statement
We have an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-227012) that was filed on August 24, 2018 with the Securities and Exchange Commission, registering the offering and sale of an indeterminate amount of debt securities, guarantees of debt securities, preferred stock, common stock, warrants, depositary shares, purchase contracts and units that include any of these securities.
Stock Repurchase Program
In November 2018, we announced that our Board of Directors (the “Board”) authorized a stock repurchase program, pursuant to which we may purchase up to $50.0 million of shares of our common stock through open market transactions, privately negotiated transactions or otherwise in accordance with applicable laws. We did not repurchase any shares of our common stock during the three months ended September 30, 2020. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, we repurchased 567,028 shares of our common stock for $31.3 million to be held as treasury stock. A total of 606,028 shares of our common stock has been repurchased since our stock repurchase program commenced. As of September 30, 2020, we may purchase up to $17.2 million of shares of our common stock under our stock repurchase program.

In accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 260-10, Earnings Per Share, we calculated the dilutive effect of the Convertible Notes using the treasury stock method, since we had the intent and ability to settle the principal amount of the outstanding Convertible Notes in cash. The Convertible Notes matured and were repaid in full on November 15, 2019. Prior to the maturity of the Convertible Notes, we included the effect of the additional potential dilutive shares if our common stock price exceeded the conversion price of $21.52 per share under the treasury stock method. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, the average market price of our common stock exceeded the conversion price of $21.52 per share.

We recognized $0.9 million and $0.5 million of stock-based compensation expense related to outstanding RSUs for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. We recognized $2.6 million and $1.6 million of stock-based compensation expense related to outstanding RSUs for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Generally, the RSUs cliff vest on the third anniversary of the grant date and can only be settled in shares of our common stock. At September 30, 2020, we had unrecognized compensation cost of $4.2 million related to unvested RSUs, which is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 1.9 years.

Performance-Based Restricted Stock Units
The Compensation Committee of the Board has granted awards of performance-based RSUs (“PSUs”) under the Amended and Restated LGI Homes, Inc. 2013 Equity Incentive Plan to certain members of senior management based on three-year performance cycles. The PSUs provide for shares of our common stock to be issued based on the attainment of certain performance metrics over the applicable three-year periods. The number of shares of our common stock that may be issued to the recipients for the PSUs range from 0% to 200% of the target amount depending on actual results as compared to the target performance metrics. The terms of the PSUs provide that the payouts will be capped at 100% of the target number of PSUs granted if absolute total stockholder return is negative during the performance period, regardless of EPS performance; this market condition applies for amounts recorded above target. The compensation expense associated with the PSU grants is determined using the derived grant date fair value, based on a third-party valuation analysis, and expensed over the applicable period. The PSUs vest upon the determination date for the actual results at the end of the three-year period and require that the recipients continue to be employed by us through the determination date. The PSUs can only be settled in shares of our common stock.
The following table summarizes the activity of our PSUs for the nine months ended September 30, 2020:

At September 30, 2020, management estimates that the recipients will receive approximately 152%, 135% and 161% of the 2020, 2019 and 2018 target number of PSUs, respectively, at the end of the applicable three-year performance cycle based on projected performance compared to the target performance metrics. We recognized $1.3 million and $1.1 million of total stock-based compensation expense related to outstanding PSUs for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. We recognized $3.7 million and $3.2 million of total stock-based compensation expense related to outstanding PSUs for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. PSUs granted in 2017 vested on March 15, 2020 at 199% of the target amount, and 208,867 shares of our common stock were issued upon such vesting. At September 30, 2020, we had unrecognized compensation cost of $9.4 million, based on the probable amount, related to unvested PSUs, which is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 2.0 years.
10.    FAIR VALUE DISCLOSURES
ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements (“ASC 820”), defines fair value as “the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date” within an entity’s principal market, if any. The principal market is the market in which the reporting entity would sell the asset or transfer the liability with the greatest volume and level of activity, regardless of whether it is the market in which the entity will ultimately transact for a particular asset or liability or if a different market is potentially more advantageous. Accordingly, this exit price concept may result in a fair value that differs from the transaction price or market price of the asset or liability.
ASC 820 provides a framework for measuring fair value under GAAP, expands disclosures about fair value measurements and establishes a fair value hierarchy, which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are summarized as follows:
Level 1 - Fair value is based on quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2 - Fair value is determined using significant observable inputs, generally either quoted prices in active markets for
similar assets or liabilities, or quoted prices in markets that are not active.
Level 3 - Fair value is determined using one or more significant inputs that are unobservable in active markets at the
measurement date, such as a pricing model, discounted cash flow or similar technique.
We utilize fair value measurements to account for certain items and account balances within our consolidated financial statements. Fair value measurements may also be utilized on a nonrecurring basis, such as for the impairment of long-lived assets. The fair value of financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and certain accrued liabilities approximate their carrying amounts due to the short-term nature of these instruments. As of

Table of Contents
September 30, 2020, the Credit Agreement’s carrying value approximates market value since it has a floating interest rate, which increases or decreases with market interest rates and our leverage ratio.
In order to determine the fair value of the Senior Notes, the future contractual cash flows are discounted at our estimate of current market rates of interest, which were determined based upon the average interest rates of similar senior notes within the homebuilding industry (Level 2 measurement).
The following table below shows the level and measurement of liabilities at September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 (in thousands):

11.    RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
Land Purchases from Affiliates
As of September 30, 2020, we have a land purchase contract to purchase a total of 110 finished lots in Pasco County, Florida from an affiliate of one of our directors for a total base purchase price of approximately $4.0 million. The lots will be purchased in takedowns, subject to a maximum price escalation of 6% per annum, and may provide for additional payments to the seller at the time of sale to the homebuyer. We have a $0.2 million non-refundable deposit at September 30, 2020 related to this land purchase contract. In August 2019, we purchased our first takedown of 58 lots under the Pasco County contract for a base purchase price of approximately $2.1 million. We did not complete any takedowns under this land purchase contract during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020.
During the three months ended September 30, 2020, we entered into a land purchase contract to purchase 10 finished lots in Montgomery County, Texas from an affiliate of a family member of our chief executive officer for a total base purchase price of approximately $0.8 million. That transaction closed on October 23, 2020. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, we purchased 25 finished lots in Montgomery County, Texas from an affiliate of the same family member of our chief executive officer for a total base purchase price of approximately $2.0 million.
12.     COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Contingencies
In the ordinary course of doing business, we are subject to claims or proceedings from time to time relating to the purchase, development and sale of real estate and homes and other aspects of our homebuilding operations. Management believes that these claims include usual obligations incurred by real estate developers and residential home builders in the normal course of business. In the opinion of management, these matters will not have a material effect on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
We have provided unsecured environmental indemnities to certain lenders and other counterparties. In each case, we have performed due diligence on the potential environmental risks including obtaining an independent environmental review from outside environmental consultants. These indemnities obligate us to reimburse the guaranteed parties for damages related to environmental matters. There is no term or damage limitation on these indemnities; however, if an environmental matter arises, we may have recourse against other previous owners. In the ordinary course of doing business, we are subject to regulatory proceedings from time to time related to environmental and other matters. In the opinion of management, these matters will not have a material effect on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Land Deposits
We have land purchase contracts, generally through cash deposits, for the right to purchase land or lots at a future point in time with predetermined terms. We do not have title to the property, and obligations with respect to the land purchase contracts are generally limited to the forfeiture of the related nonrefundable cash deposits. The following is a summary of our land purchase deposits included in pre-acquisition costs and deposits (in thousands, except for lot count):

Commitments under the land purchase contracts if the purchases are consummated$663,209 $539,122 
Lots under land purchase contracts24,557 16,205 
As of September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, approximately $21.8 million and $26.3 million, respectively, of the land deposits are related to purchase contracts to deliver finished lots that are refundable under certain circumstances, such as feasibility or specific performance, and secured by mortgages or letters of credit or guaranteed by the seller or its affiliates.
Lease Obligations
We recognize lease obligations and associated right-of-use (“ROU”) assets for our existing non-cancelable leases. Our lease agreements do not contain any material residual value guarantees or material restrictive covenants. We have non-cancelable operating leases primarily associated with our corporate and regional office facilities.  Operating lease expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term, subject to any changes in the lease or expectations regarding the terms. Variable lease costs such as common area costs and property taxes are expensed as incurred. Leases with an initial term of 12 months or less are not recorded on the balance sheet. The lease term may include options to extend or terminate the lease when it is reasonably certain that we will exercise that option. As our leases do not provide an implicit rate, we use our incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments. ROU assets, as included in other assets on the consolidated balance sheets, were $5.0 million and $5.3 million as of September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively. Lease obligations, as included in accrued expenses and other liabilities on the consolidated balance sheets, were $5.3 million and $5.6 million at September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively.
Operating lease cost, as included in general and administrative expense in our consolidated statements of operations, was $0.4 million and $0.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Operating lease cost, as included in general and administrative expense in our consolidated statements of operations, was $1.2 million and $0.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Cash paid for amounts included in the measurement of lease liabilities for operating leases during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 was $0.7 million and $0.3 million, respectively. As of September 30, 2020, the weighted-average discount rate was 5.42% and our weighted-average remaining life was 5.6 years. We do not have any significant lease contracts that have not yet commenced at September 30, 2020.

respectively, related to our obligations for site improvements at various projects. Management does not believe that draws upon the letters of credit, surety bonds or financial guarantees if any, will have a material effect on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
Investment in Unconsolidated Entity
In July 2019, we became a limited partner in a real estate investment fund with a maximum $30.0 million commitment. The term of the commitment is eight years and includes renewals of up to two additional years. As of September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, we have a total of $2.1 million and $1.1 million, respectively, within other assets on the balance sheet. Contributions into the unconsolidated entity are for the use of investing in certain real estate transactions.
13.     SEGMENT INFORMATION
We operate one principal homebuilding business that is organized and reports by division. We have seven operating segments (our Central, Midwest, Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, Northwest, West, and Florida divisions) that we aggregate into five reportable segments at September 30, 2020: our Central, Southeast, Northwest, West, and Florida divisions. These segments reflect the way the Company evaluates its business performance and manages its operations. The Central division is our largest division and comprised approximately 35% and 41% of total home sales revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.
In accordance with ASC Topic 280, Segment Reporting, operating segments are defined as components of an enterprise for which separate financial information is available that is evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision-makers (“CODMs”) in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance. The CODMs primarily evaluate performance based on the number of homes closed, gross margin and average sales price per home closed.
The seven operating segments qualify as our five reportable segments. In determining the most appropriate reportable segments, we consider operating segments’ economic and other characteristics, including home floor plans, average selling prices, gross margin percentage, geographical proximity, production construction processes, suppliers, subcontractors, regulatory environments, customer type and underlying demand and supply. Each operating segment follows the same accounting policies and is managed by our management team. We have no inter-segment sales, as all sales are to external customers. Operating results for each segment may not be indicative of the results for such segment had it been an independent, stand-alone entity for the periods presented.
