Miami-based Lennar Corp. reported a drop in earnings but higher revenues than analysts anticipated in the second quarter.

The homebuilder reported earnings of $200.7 million, or 91 cents a share, in the second quarter, down from $224 million, or $1.01 a share, in the first quarter of this year, according to the Sun Sentinel. Revenues, meanwhile, rose to $3.26 billion from $2.74 billion, higher than the $2.89 billion analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research expected.

Lennar, the nation’s second largest homebuilder behind D.R. Horton, announced 8,898 home orders at the end of May. Lennar broke ground at the end of April on its 552-home Parkland Bay development in Broward County.

The company recently revealed that it would be adding smart homes to its offerings, partnering with Amazon.com to incorporate the Alexa virtual personal assistant technology into the homes.
