The Federal Reserve’s massive stimulus combined with Federal spending has led to US housing starts rising 11.8% in November. Housing starts remain elevated compared to pre-COVID levels.
1-unit starts rose 11.29% while 5+ (multifamily) starts rose 12.1% in November. All areas in the US saw growth except for the Midwest where starts fell by 7.27%.
Yes, with Powell leaving rates untouched … again … in The Fed’s effort to … not scare markets. Inflation be damned. Powell is the God of Hellfire!
