U.S. Builder Confidence Remained Strong in February

U.S. builder confidence for new single-family homes in February was even with the month prior at 72 points on the National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI). The HMI component gauging current sales conditions fell 1 point to 78, and sales expectations in the next six months rose 2 points to 80. The component measuring buyer traffic remained at 54 points.

Derived from a monthly NAHB survey, the HMI gauges builder perceptions of current single-family home sales and sales expectations for the next six months. Scores from each component are then used to calculate a seasonally adjusted index where any number over 50 indicates that more builders view conditions as good rather than poor.  See NAHB
