NAHB Housing Market Index: 18 vs. 15 expected, 14 prior. The boost in builder confidence is "a good sign that some pockets of recovery are starting to emerge," NAHB Chief Economist David Crowe says, but "while some builders have shifted their assessment of market conditions from poor to fair, relatively few have shifted their assessments from fair to good."

    This president claimed he was going to change Washington... he made it worse. Penalize success, subsidize failure. That's Obama's plan for our economy. His vision... a society where there is no bottom and no top.

    In all fairness, the man never had to return a profit for an origination. It's all social agenda all the time. The cost is merely collateral damage for righting so many of this country's wrongs. We brought it all on ourselves thus we must apologize to every country and organization imaginable and bow to every head of state...


    oh, how far we have fallen. Even our leadership undermines our greatness.

    I believe a reading of 50 is the centerline. 18 is like saying the SP500 just bounced from 250-350 when the all time high is 1575. Laughable

    "Some pockets of recovery are starting to emerge." Really?? We have been hearing the same rhetoric for over 2 years now with nothing being consistent. So rates went lower, and a few people went and signed a contract to build a house. Big deal, there will be pockets of this all of the time, but its the mass amount of homes that are sitting in foreclosure, or waiting to be foreclosed on that is the issue. I cant believe the market actually reversed off of this news.
