juli construction spending / pending home sales

U.S. JULY PRIVATE RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION DROPS 2.0%

U.S. JULY PRIVATE CONSTRUCTION SPENDING FALLS 1.3%

U.S. JULY CONSTRUCTION OUTLAYS DOWN 1.2% VS. 0.0% EXPECTED

Spending on U.S. construction projects fell by 1.2% in July, dragged down by a drop in private residential construction, the Commerce Department said Friday. Spending on home-building fell by 2.0% in July, the lowest rate since March 2005, another sign of the slowing housing market that has cooled the pace of the overall economy. Wall Street economists surveyed by MarketWatch were expecting construction spending to be flat in July. Spending on construction projects was down in four of six categories tracked by the government.

Pending homes sales index falls 7% in July

The index is down 16% in the past 12 months. Every other housing indicator shows a similar decline in the past year. (aber die jobs wachsen weiter an...)

In July, the pending home sales index fell 9% in the Midwest, 7.7% in the Northeast, 6.4% in the South and 5.5% in the West.

In the past year, the pending home sales index is down 20.3% in the West, 20.1% in the Midwest, 15.5% in the Northeast and 11.3% in the South.
