Today, NVR, Inc. has released its 10-K report. NVR operates as a homebuilder in the United States and operates through Homebuilding and Mortgage Banking segments. The company constructs and sells single-family detached homes, townhomes, and condominium buildings under the Ryan Homes, NVHomes, and Heartland Homes names.

The company's shares have moved 2.1% on the market and are now trading at a price of $7501.73.

In 2023, housing demand improved due to the stabilization of mortgage interest rates, although affordability remains a challenge.
