BONITA SPRINGS, FL -- WCI Communities, Inc., a lifestyle community developer and luxury homebuilder, said net income attributable to common shareholders was $4.3 million, compared to $8.2 million in the prior year period. The second quarter of 2014 included $3.0 million of income tax expense, whereas there was no income tax expense in the prior year period. In addition, the decrease from the prior year period is also attributable to a decrease in Real Estate Services gross margin and other income, whereby the prior year included items related to favorable legal settlements and reductions in legal reserves.
New orders during the second quarter of 2014 increased 32.7% to 195 homes and the contract value of new orders was $93.6 million for the second quarter, an increase of 33.5% from the prior year period. Incentives as a percentage of base price on new orders remained flat at 3.1% year over year. Additionally, the active selling neighborhood count at quarter end increased by 27.3% to 28 neighborhoods compared to the second quarter of 2013.
The Company generated total revenues of $93.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, an increase of $9.7 million, or 11.6%, compared to $83.3 million in the second quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily due to a 13.2% improvement in our Homebuilding segment revenues, which was driven by an increase in deliveries, partially offset by a decrease in average selling price. Additionally, revenues from our Real Estate Services segment grew 10.4% year-over-year.
Revenues from homes delivered for the second quarter of 2014 were $60.9 million, an increase of 13.2% from the prior year period.

The average selling price per home delivered was $426,000, a decrease of 3.4% from the prior year period, primarily attributable to shifting product mix.
