DescriptionIn September, United States single-family construction data indicated month-over-month improvement in several critical categories, with the exception being completions. Total housing starts, permits, and completions were negative month-over-month. Only total and single-family under construction were positive on a monthly and yearly basis. Of note, total and single-family construction spending continued year-over-year declines. Declining interest rates have led to improving housing affordability, which is one factor for this month’s improvement.
