DescriptionJuly housing data rebounded in the majority of categories; yet, the aggregate housing market appears to be in a sluggish mode. Total permits and starts, including single-family permits and starts crept into positive territory. Total starts were negative on a year-over-year basis. Housing under construction also crept into positive territory on a monthly basis. Total and single-family housing completions were negative on a month-over-month basis. New single-family sales declined month-over-month but were robust on a year-over-year basis. Private residential construction spending indicated minimal positive change on a monthly basis. Existing sales continued their declining trend, monthly and yearly. Regionally, data were mixed across all sectors.
