Builder Confidence Reaches Highest Level In 10 Years

Posted by John Sabia on Monday, July 20th, 2015 at 1:12pm.

Home Builders/ Developers are widely considered to have a very good handle on the strength and weakness of the real estate housing market because of their distinct viewpoint on new construction homes for sale and the development of townhouse projects and condominiums for sale.  For this reason, the National Association of Home Builders has been surveying builders for the past thirty years to comment on the amount of current home buyers looking at properties, home sales conditions and their assessment for the up coming six months.

When the survey is tallied, a score of 50 or more indicates the majority of builders forecast positive conditions in the housing market going forward. The NAHB's survey in July scored it's highest level in 10 years with a score of 60.

Tom Woods, chairman at NAHB said "The fact that builder confidence has returned to levels not seen since 2005 shows that housing continues to improve at a steady pace. And as we head into the second half of 2015, we should expect a continued recovery of the housing market.”

Results regionally show three-month moving averages with a 3 point increase each for the West and Northwest and a one point gain each for the South and Midwest.  However, current results show confidence amongst builders in the southern region exceeds all other areas, reaching 61.
