In addition, the Company's own certain amenities within the Company's master planned communities, which are now managed by third party providers. The Company's assets consist primarily of real estate in the states of Florida and Arizona. As of December 31, 2012, it owns 3,155 developed residential lots, 2,705 partially developed residential lots, 11,295 undeveloped residential lots, and 9,940 acres of mixed use, commercial, and industrial land. The Company's primary business is the development of active adult communities, in conjunction with construction and sales of residences within those communities. The Company believes the demographics are good for active adult development.

The Company also constructs and sells homes in primary residential communities. The Company has federally registered trademarks and service marks or pending applications for federal registration for several of its entities, operations and communities, including AV Homes, Joseph Carl Homes, Stonegate, Solivita, and CantaMia.
