The Week Ahead: Housing Starts

This Wednesday, the U.S. Census Bureau in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development will release its monthly report on new residential construction for the month of June.

Seasonally-adjusted housing starts have continued to decrease since March 2017, when they were sitting at about 1.19 million. In April, that number fell to approximately 1.16 million, only to fall further to 1.09 million in May. Wednesday’s numbers will indicate if housing starts’ decline is the beginning of an emerging trend, or if the last two months’ drop was an irregularity.  The Census Bureau reports that it may take up to six months to identify underlying trends.
