Weekly Market Report

For Week Ending January 23, 2021

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development released their December housing report this week showing overall housing starts increased by a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.67 million units. Single-family housing starts increased 12 percent to a 1.34 million unit seasonally adjusted annual rate, the highest level since September 2006. Expectations are for further increases in building activity in 2021, though rising material costs and a lack of buildable lots and labor will temper activity and affect affordability.
