April Shows Increase in Homebuilder Confidence

Homebuilder confidence edged up slightly in April, according to the latest survey from the National Association of Home Builders. While the increase is likely due to the beginning of the spring-selling season, the modest homebuilder confidence index of 47 points may be held back by a shortage of workers, few available lots, and lending constraints.

Residential construction has grown at double-digit rates since early 2012, and builders are expecting sales to continually increase in the upcoming months.
