    Although the aggregate U.S. housing market was mixed in December, both new single-family (SF) sales and starts were revised substantially downward. Other housing data appear to have flat-lined on a month-over-month basis. Regionally, data were mixed across all sectors. New SF construction and remodeling spending remain positive, increasing at an incremental pace.
