In another sign that Orange County's housing market is recovering, a New Jersey home builder has purchased StoneBrook Homes in Newport Beach and acquired 98 housing sites in Yorba Linda. Hovnanian Enterprises Inc., the nation's 10th-largest home builder, purchased StoneBrook for less than $1 million, but possible incentives to management if the company is successful could push the purchase price to about $2 million, according to Nick Pappas, president of K. Hovnanian Cos.

A major East Coast home-builder that entered the Southern California housing market just last year has laid off 14 workers in Orange County and San Diego, and closed its San Diego division. Some real estate sources said the home-builder, Hovnanian Enterprises Inc., may scale back its Southern California operations even more in the wake of declining home sales and housing prices here, but Nick Pappas, president of the company's Newport Beach division, insisted that Hovnanian is "here to stay."
