ability to comply with related debt covenants, restrictions and limitations;
potential deterioration in homebuilding industry conditions and the current
weak U.S. economy; the cyclical nature of the homebuilding industry and
changes in general economic, real estate and other conditions; constriction of
the credit markets, which could limit our ability to access capital and
increase our costs of capital; reductions in the availability of mortgage
financing and the liquidity provided by government-sponsored enterprises, the
effects of government programs, a decrease in our ability to sell mortgage
loans on attractive terms and an increase in mortgage interest rates; the
risks associated with our land and lot inventory; supply shortages and other
risks for acquiring land, building materials and skilled labor; increases in
the costs of owning a home; the effects of governmental regulations and
environmental matters on our homebuilding operations; the effects of
governmental regulation on our financial services operations; the
uncertainties inherent in home warranty and construction defect claims
matters; competitive conditions within our industry; our ability to effect any
future growth strategies successfully; the impact of an inflationary or
deflationary environment; our ability to realize the full amount of our
deferred income tax asset; and information technology failures and data
security breaches. Additional information about issues that could lead to
material changes in performance is contained in D.R. Horton’s annual report on
