BUILDER CONFIDENCE RISES
OCT
22

Tom Plant's Houston Real Estate Blog


Home builder confidence rose in October for the first time since May.

The National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index rose three points to 16. All three components of the index were up with sales conditions rising three points to 16; six-month sales expectations increasing four points to 23; and buyer traffic climbing two points to 11.

“The new-homes market is finally moving past the lull that occurred when the home buyer tax credits expired and economic growth stalled this summer,” David Crowe, NAHB chief economist, said in a statement. “While challenges such as competition from foreclosures, inaccurate appraisal values, and general consumer uncertainty about the economy and job market continue to be major factors, builders have seen a slight increase in consumers who are considering a home purchase.”
