The NAHB housing market index in the US fell for a 6th straight month to 67 in June of 2022, the lowest since June of 2020, from 69 in May and below forecasts of 68 as rising mortgage rates and building material costs continue to hurt affordability. The current sales subindex dropped 1 point to 77; buyer traffic fell to 48 from 53; and sales expectations in the next six months declined 2 points to 61. "The entry-level market has been particularly affected by declines for housing affordability and builders are adopting a more cautious stance as demand softens with higher mortgage rates. Government officials need to enact policies that will support the supply-side of the housing market as costs continue to climb", said NAHB Chairman Jerry Konter. source: National Association of Home Builders

The NAHB housing market index in the US fell for a 5th straight month to 69 in May of 2022 from 77 in April, below market forecasts of 75.

US Home Builder Sentiment Falls for 4th Month
The NAHB housing market index in the US fell to 77 in April of 2022 from 79 in March, in line with market expectations. The index fell for a fourth consecutive month to the lowest since September last year, as a sharp jump in mortgage rates, persistent supply chain disruptions, elevated housing prices and construction costs continue to unsettle the housing market. The current sales subindex fell 2 points to 85; buyer traffic dropped 6 points to 60, and sales expectations in the next six months increased 3 points to 73, following a 10-point drop in March. “The housing market faces an inflection point as an unexpectedly quick rise in interest rates, rising home prices and escalating material costs have significantly decreased housing affordability conditions, particularly in the crucial entry-level market,” said NAHB Chief Economist Robert Dietz.
