The U.S. Census Bureau released residential construction data for the month of December and the results provide further – and perhaps more convincing – proof that the housing market is showing consistent signs of improvement. Some analysts even call this a housing rebound as overall residential construction starts increased to 954,000 units or 12.1% over the revised November rate of 851,000 units.
Housing Starts – Start of a New Trend?
The Commerce Department on Tuesday released the latest report on the residential construction market – a key economic indicator for the custom integration market – and…as you might suspect with this uneven recovery we are in…the data showed yet another zag after last month’s zig. Total residential housing construction starts for the month of May were 708,000, down 4.8% from the revised April level of 723,000 units.
