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 unexpectedly fell by 1.6% mom to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.555 million in September of 2021, compared to market forecasts of 1.62 million. It is the lowest reading in 5 months, as high costs for building materials, supply constraints and labor shortages weighed on the housing market. Single-family housing starts were at a rate of 1.080 million, virtually unchanged from August while the multi-family segment dropped 5.1% to 467,000. Sales declined in the Northeast (-27.3% to 120,000) and the South (-6.3% to 835,000) but rose in the Midwest (6.9% to 217,000) and the West (19.3% to 383,000).
