Following their 12-year high in August, Housing Starts took a break in September, off 9.4%, but at a still decent 1.256 million annual rate. The dip was all from multi-families–single-family starts were up for the fourth month in a row.

Since bottoming in February, single-family starts have trended upward, and are now near new highs. No wonder October’s National Association of Home Builders sentiment index hit its best read in 20 months.
