Homebuilders Index Plummets to 15-Year Low

by: Barry Ritholtz

The NAHB (the National Association of Home Builders) writes:

Reflecting increasing builder concerns about conditions in the market for new single-family homes, the National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index [HMI] declined for an eighth consecutive month to a level of 30 in September. This amounted to a three-point drop from an upwardly revised 33 reading in August, and is the lowest level the index has reached since February of 1991.
