  • Index shows a slip in home builders' confidence
    U.S. home builders have become less optimistic this month, according to the National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index. "This is partly due to ongoing uncertainties about job growth and consumer access to mortgage credit," NAHB Chairman Rick Judson said. "But it's also a reflection of the fact that builders are now confronting rising costs for building materials and, in some markets, limited availability of labor and lots as demand for new homes strengthens."
