By Amy Schwartz

Below are the three companies in the Homebuilding industry with the lowest price to earnings (P/E) ratios. P/E is an important valuation tool when comparing companies in the same industry. A higher P/E ratio means that investors are paying more for each unit of net income, so the stock is more expensive compared to one with a lower P/E ratio.

Meritage Homes ranks lowest with a a P/E ratio of 10.86. Pulte Homes is next with a a P/E ratio of 11.25. M/I Homes ranks third lowest with a a P/E ratio of 11.26.
