(Reuters) – Home builder Toll Brothers Inc (N:) said on Wednesday that the coronavirus outbreak in China had led to shortages of lighting fixtures and small appliances, forcing it to delay sales of some homes in California, one of its biggest markets.

“We believe 11 closings in California have been pushed out, we hope to the second quarter, due to the virus,” Chief Executive Officer Douglas Yearley said on a post-earnings call.

Toll has been under pressure from President Donald Trump’s trade war, which has kept affluent Chinese from buying homes in California.

The company’s homes in the state can cost more than $2 million.
