The collective U.S. housing market was mixed in January, and once again new SF sales were revised sharply downward. SF housing starts were robust, and other data series appear to have flat-lined on a monthly basis. Regionally, data were mixed across all sectors. New SF construction and remodeling spending remain positive, increasing at an incremental pace.
