Homebuilder sentiment drops in December to the lowest point in more than 3 years

by Builder Trade In Program Jan, 07

Homebuilder sentiment dropped in December to its lowest point in more than three years while potential buyers hesitate to purchase new homes even as mortgage rates have pulled back in the past month.

According to the National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index, homebuilder sentiment declined 4 points in December to 56. That is the lowest reading since May 2015 and well below December 2017′s level of 74. This comes after an 8-point drop in November. Anything above 50, however, is considered positive sentiment.
