JPG, Virginia Tech – U.S. Forest Service September 2015 Housing Commentary Part A: Current Data

This publication is available in a PDF file format only.

The housing market typically slows this time of year. Thus we should look at upcoming data on a long-term basis and not by monthly data reports. September's housing data was truly mixed based on a monthly basis – permits, new sales, and construction spending all declined. Starts, existing sales, completions, and spending increased. On a regional perspective, the data was similar. In addition, all data reported here on a year-over-year basis remains positive. This report provides housing data, demographic data, economics, private and government indicators, and forecasts for the global and United States economy and housing market.
