    The collective U.S. housing market, on a monthly basis, was mixed in April 2018. Encouraging were the year-over-year readings, which were overwhelmingly positive, except for existing house sales. Single-family housing starts, permits, and under construction improved on a monthly basis. Existing house sales were negative on a month-over-month and year-over-year basis. Regionally, data were mixed across all sectors.
