Housing Starts refer to the number of new residential construction projects that have begun during any particular month. Estimates of housing starts include units in structures being totally rebuilt on an existing foundation.

Latest Updates

Housing starts in the US went up 3.2 percent month-over-month to an annualized 1.365 million units in November of 2019. It compares with an upwardly revised 1.323 million in the previous month and market expectations of 1.345 million. The housing market has been boosted by a fall in mortgage rates after the Fed cut key rates 3 times this year.
