“The supply chain for construction is significantly stressed and that will continue for the 4th quarter and beyond,” said Stuart Miller, chairman of Lennar during a company earning’s call Tuesday.

The call reported on Lennar’s earnings for the months of June, July, and August. The Miami-based company tallied $6.9 billion in total revenue with 94% of that total coming from its home-building arm.

Lennar delivered 15,200 homes onto market in those three months, with the average sale priced at $428,000.
