"As the market continued to solidify through the third-quarter, stimulating both the affordability and demand for homes, our new orders and deliveries increased 9% and 7%, respectively, from the prior year,” said Stuart Miller, executive chairman of Lennar.

“Our homebuilding gross margin in the third quarter was 20.4%, while our SG&A of 8.3% marked an all-time, third-quarter low. We continue to believe that the basic underlying housing market fundamentals of low unemployment, higher wages and low inventory levels remain favorable."

Lennar shares traded higher by 2.42% at $57.07 in Wednesday's pre-market session. The stock has a 52-week range between $56.19 and $37.29.
