The Ryland Group, Inc. (NYSE: RYL) today announces that it has acquired the Phoenix operations and assets of Trend Homes. The Trend acquisition provides Ryland with an ongoing successful operation in Phoenix and approximately 910 additional lots and homes for future sales, as well as 106 homes currently sold and under construction for delivery.

The controlling ownership interests in Trend were sold to Ryland by Najafi Investments. Jahm Najafi, CEO of Najafi Investments, stated that, “We are proud of the success Trend Homes has enjoyed under our stewardship and are confident this acquisition will ensure the continuation of that success.”

The purchase of Trend Homes is Ryland’s second acquisition in the last five months following its purchase of the assets of Timberstone Homes in Charlotte and Raleigh in July of this year.
