Single family construction spending up in October

December 1, 2017 LBM Journal

The National Association of Home Builders provides analysis on its Eye on Housing blog that shows Census Construction Spending data indicating total private residential construction spending grew 0.4% in October to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $517.7 billion. It was a modest gain after a 0.2% dip in September. The total private residential construction spending was 7.4% higher than a year ago.

NAHB attributes the monthly gains to the steady growth of spending on single-family and home improvements. Single-family construction spending edged up 0.3%, and remodeling spending rebounded by 1.4% in October. However, multifamily construction spending slipped 1.6% after the September dip, and was 2% lower since a year ago.
