New-home construction surges to post-Great Recession high in October, driven by rise in single-family starts Americans are looking to buy homes in the suburbs, but construction firms can’t keep pace with demand The pace of home construction continued to increase in October, a reflection of Americans’ strong interest in buying homes thanks to low mortgage rates. The numbers: U.S. builders started construction on homes at a seasonally-adjusted annual rate of 1.53 million in October, representing a 4.9% increase from the previous month’s figure, the U.S. Census Bureau reported Wednesday . Permitting for new homes occurred at a seasonally-adjusted annual rate of 1.545 million in October, unchanged from September. Economists polled by MarketWatch had expected housing starts to occur at a pace of 1.49 million and building permits to come in at a pace of 1.57 million. What happened: The upsurge in housing starts was driven by a 6.4% rise in single-family starts, as multifamily construction activity dipped once again, this time by 3.2%. All regions except the Northeast experienced an increase in housing starts despite rising coronavirus cases across many parts of the country, led by the 12.9% increase in the South. Permitting rose slightly in the South, West and Midwest, but fell markedly in the Northeast. The big picture: The housing starts report follows yesterday’s release of the November home builder confidence index from the National Association of Home Builders. The index inched higher for the fourth consecutive month, demonstrating the upbeat outlook in the construction industry.
