Abstract

August 2019 U.S. housing data indicated improvement in most categories; yet most indicators remain well less than their respective historical averages. Single-family starts, permits, and completions were all positive month-over-month. Total housing starts, permits, under construction, and completions were positive year-over-year. New single-family sales recorded impressive month-over-month and year-over-year gains. Notably, total private residential and single-family construction spending continued year-over-year declines.
