June sees an increase in new home construction

Whether through consumers speculating about the stability of their future, or homebuilders speculating on theirs… new housing starts jumped in June according to this story in today’s USA Today (click to link).

Implications:    Pardon me if I take this opportunity to amplify any news that seems somewhat optimistic.  New homes lead to construction jobs, as well as the sales of home furnishings, décor, appliances, and more.

Generally speaking, people who build or buy homes have reason to be confident in the future.
